Hall - Simple Complexities by Claudia Kaufman, Aug. 2-30
Reception: Thursday, August 2, 7:00 pm
As a contemporary realist painter, Claudia Kaufman's works are studies in observation - still life set-ups of familiar objects that are deceptively simple, yet complex. The artist challenges herself to translate the perceived three-dimensional world to a two-dimensional field by observing and capturing the conditions of light, form, color and space through the painterly properties of oils. Simple Complexities will be on view in the Main Hall. An award winning painter, Claudia Kaufman is a member of the Copley Society of Art.
Gallery - Fluid by Mark J. Stock, Aug. 2-30
Reception: Thursday, August 9, 7:00 pm
Mark J. Stock creates still and moving images combining elements of nature, physics, chaos, computation and algorithm. His works are created solely with scientifically accurate research software and methods, with code he has written himself or borrowed from researchers in their respective fields. Often, these codes have never been retasked for artistic purposes. FLUID will be on view in the Gallery. Mark J. Stock has participated in over 50 juried exhibitions since 2001.
