Tünde Darvay’s paintings are inspired by the unique rural landscapes of Transylvania, Romania where she was born, mythological stories, interpersonal relationships, the relationship between the human and the animal world, and personal stories shared by friends. “My aesthetic worldview is profoundly mythical – it depicts a world in which color breathes life into inanimate things in order to create playful, suggestive associations along a broad spectrum of themes and forms.”

These beautiful works of art include drawings, watercolors, and prints displaying a variety of subjects, both representational and abstract.

Jay McVicker (1959 –1977)  Jack, Reed and McVicker all incorporated trends in modern art, from surrealism to abstract expressionism, into their own work and into their teaching.

“Using the Chinese writing system as an entry point, the artist deconstructs, analyzes, and reconstructs the process of art making. This series of work addresses issues surrounding the systemization and institutionalization of art-making throughout human history, and the similarities of this pursuit across different cultures. These digital compositions are reminiscence of traditional painting, illustration, prints, and photography. Gong’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in the U.S., Europe and China.”

Mandalas as a symbol of wholeness are found in cultures around the world, reflecting the symmetry of natural forms, the cycle of life, and the circle of community.  This large-scale ceramic installation of sculptural mandalas represents the life journey of the artist, who recently returned from a residency at the Watershed Center for Ceramic Art.  This exhibition represents many of the new ideas that evolved in her work as a result of this amazing experience.
