January 18 - February 8, 2013

Opening Reception
Friday, January 18, 5 - 7 pm 

Please join us this Friday from 5 to 7 pm for the opening reception for our first exhibition of 2013, featuring the work of Deirdre Schiffer and Dorothy Powers.

Deirdre Schiffer: Retrospective
This exhibition encompasses a selection of paintings, drawings and works on paper that highlight Deirdre Schiffer's extensive artistic career up until the end of her life in 2011.
Known for her understanding and use of light in painting, and often working from life, Schiffer's portraits pursue an exploration of "a deep interest in the power of being, the ineffable sense of presence we experience in our everyday lives."

Dorothy Powers: The Women
The Women is a recent series of works that depict "burka-clad figures as symbol or metaphor images for the gender inequality." Working with a variety of media -- including painting, drawing, mixed media and digital imaging -- Powers approaches gender issues from both an artistic and personal perspective.
