Figure This/Figure That: Fong-Franklin-Schmelzer

When: Fri., March 19, 6:30 p.m. 2010

This new exhibit brings together three artists who use the figure as the central point of reference, yet each describe the subject with entirely different intentions. Nancy Fong's painterly genre scenes portray a delicate serenity and familiarity with her subjects. Jonathan Franklin's vigorous works on paper explore not only the figure but also the limits of the two-dimensional surface. John Schmelzer's cast of characters, Rubenesque women, gnarled old men and everyday people, are portrayed with humor, irony and sympathy for the human condition. Gallery Opening is March 19 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The show runs through May 2. Gallery Hours: Friday 12-4; Saturday/Sunday 1-5
