“ May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams... and good madness... I hope you read some fine books and  kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful and don't forget to make some art... write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can.  And I hope somewhere in the next year,  you surprise yourself.” ~Neil Gaiman
Best wishes to you for an amazing 2014!

From the vibrant, painterly abstractions of Bernd Haussmann to the furiously worked figures and flowers of Cynthia Packard, this show combines the highly patterned geometry of Nina Tichava with the delicate poetry of artists Tom Chambers, Katina Huston and Alicia Tormey. Objects come alive in the luminous still lifes of Micheal Zigmond and the moody interiors of Treacy Zeigler. In her small, expressive mixed media works, artist Kathryn Frund explores concepts of balance and composition. While each artist approaches the work with a unique process and goal, the …
