The Arts Center Gallery is proud to announce the opening of Observations by Kathy Greenwood and Laurel Garcia Colvin on Saturday, October 4th.

Observations brings together two artists whose Individual and collective experiences are greatly impacted by the process in which they observe and interact with the world around them. Emotions, ideas and senses are engaged to form responses, build relationships and create narratives based on these experiences.

The work of Kathy Greenwood and Laurel Garcia Colvin examines and comments on the everyday, from the domestic to the social and political environments that surround us.

The objects and images that populate Kathy Greenwood’s work allude to stories, relationships and observations of daily living. Drawn to the way that the ephemera of home can invoke a host of memories and conjecture, Greenwood paints likenesses and patterns upon familiar surfaces whose associations infuse their subjects. An object in itself, the found cloth surface on which these are painted has its own history of domestic utility and artistry.

Laurel Garcia Colvin’s mixed media drawings explore how the human psyche perceives and reconstructs reality. Colvin evokes emotion and suggests vulnerability in images that infuse printed 18th century French Toile de Jouy designs with a social narrative which is in direct contrast to the nostalgic, sanitized, decorum of the historical patterns.
