Experience the work of a triad of artists this July and August, each approaching their art making in a different way. The exhibit is meant to engage the viewer in a conversation about process and the varied approach to art-making.

The contrast of chaos with order provides the structure for Jay Zerbe’s paintings; the appearance of order breaks down under scrutiny, which mirrors his understanding of reality. Celia Greiner’s sculpture reveal her interest in organisms that live in a different atmosphere and environment than our own, and how we perceive them and why we are attracted to some and repelled by others. Angie McMonigal’s photographs are a study in various perceptions of common subject matter–a way to see the whole by appreciating its detail and an understanding in how we reveal a detail of ourselves while moving through these spaces.

Viewers will encounter the visual contrast of chaos with order in color form, line and movement, the gentle movement of line and shape in sculptural forms made with traditional woodworking techniques and abstract photographic images that are achieved by isolating their details.
