Anna Krieg’s show is titled “Personification” and she said that it is “connecting abstract floral paintings to different feelings.” Her favorite quote about art is “Painting is color, and color is light... light is manipulating the painter,” by Larry Poons. She will continue to explore different ideas, reflecting experiences in her artwork throughout her life.
Danielle Verhey’s show, titled “Boom,” is an exhibit about nuclear power. It focuses on the power of nuclear energy to change the landscape and living things around it, but its failure to ultimately destroy it. It showcases changes in animal life from comical to tragic.
Kyle Hanson has titled his show “Memory Navigation.” The work being displayed at this exhibition represents a series of road trips the artist has taken that have had significant emotional impacts. The trips have been a key element to his becoming the person he is today. Actual maps serve as reminders of the importance of different places, and the artwork is a celebration of his travel experiences.
Lenaya Kerlin’s show is titled “Roller Derby: Sights & Sounds.” She will be presenting video documentary on the most basic elements of the practice of roller derby. Her focus relies on the sound and skills that are repeated ritualistically in the average practice of an FM Derby Girl. With the assistance of fellow derby girls, Kerlin has compiled the essential agility and strength workouts that lead to the creation of the super woman persona of a derby girl.
Samuel Schultz titled his show “Portraits in B Flat Minor.” His current series incorporates his history as a jazz musician and his interest in abstract expressionism with photorealism and the genre of portraiture.
Oscar G. Zamora’s show is titled “Acknowledge Me,” and he describes it as a performance, poetry, and painting show. “My work is about my past self and my present self seeking acknowledgement. Without my past I wouldn’t exist. Now, in my present, I can share and open up,” Zamora said.
The exhibit will be on display until April 14.
