Robert W. Grant
Grantlantis: The Colours of Water

"I am a self-taught artist - painter, photographer, graphic designer - resulting into my own style and reflected in my creations. My paintings are full of vibrant and dynamic colors and, on closer inspection, reveal subterranean levels of emotions, introspection and expression. They are the windows into my psyche, soul, dreams, and imagination. They capture all the construction, de-construction, and re-construction of an idea, vision and process as they evolve, change and direct me to their inevitability. I employ a mix of inspiration, motivation, and determination in capturing just a bit of the magic of painting." These paintings celebrate the vitality, versatility, and necessity of water and of art. They capture aquatic scenes above, below, in between our watery worlds. These are the many Colours of Water." (acrylics on canvas/linen)



Gallery Night: Friday, October 3, 5pm to 8pm

Clarissa Plank

"This series of reduction woodcut prints investigate the fear and fascination we feel when faced with the natural environment.  Insects epitomize this complicated relationship because of their duality; they can induce nightmares, and function as fashionable, pleasing designs at the same time. I choose to depict insect pests that I am familiar with from growing up in the northeast: these insects are known to farmers, gardeners and residents in this region."



Gallery Night: Friday, November 7, 5pm to 8pm

Outdoor mobiles

"A mobile needs to be neither a weathervane nor a whirligig. It needs to be ambiguous relative to the wind. Then it will be interesting to watch and it will be involved in its venue. The movement of each piece relative to the other pieces should be unpredictable. Then its encounter with shadows, its screening of objects behind, and its color variations will be unpredictable."
