The definition of solstice
is the longest day of the year and the beginning of the summer
season. It also means the "highest point"; that
definition certainly applies to the incoming art. Everything
has been created, labored over, tweaked and touched by the artists,
sometimes for many months. The results are amazing. Whether
it is the efforts of more local artists such as Jacob Cooley,
Paula Holtzclaw, MT McClanahan, Mary Rountree Moore, Joe Seme,
Hilda Spain-Owen, Mike Rooney or Sandy Nelson, all of North Carolina,
or the superb strokes of our more far-flung artists, the gallery
buzzes with excitement.
From the classical realism of Chris Groves, Mark Horton and Qiang Huang to the exuberant color of Trey Finney, Christine Debrosky and Anda Styler, the variety of expression is endless. The lyrical florals of Tami Cardnella and the quiet poetry of Barrie Van Osdell hang well with the pastel landscapes of Kathleen Newman and the figure work of Andre Kohn. Cityscapes by Jeff Jamison and Andrew McDermott complement the pastoral fields and marshes of David Weiss, Rani Garner and Rick McClure. Modern works by Elena Madden, Jacob Cooley and Mary Rountree Moore round out the "something for everyone" show.
This wonderful group of artists will combine their unique styles to present their views of the world around them in Summer Solstice. The images are as varied as the artists, some entertaining, others hauntingly beautiful, all making the viewer feel they have been there and felt that.
