Andrea Canter & Cindy Fuerstenberg, 'Naturally Unexpected'

Lobby Gallery, both floors

October 28 - November 27, 2021

Opening reception: Thursday, October 28, 5 - 8pm

Artist Talk: Tuesday, November 2, 6pm

This exhibit brings together two spirited mid-career artists who excel at working in textural layers. In work inspired by nature, Andrea Canter and Cindy Fuerstenberg each bring a fresh freedom from representation while maintaining the context of nature’s reality through their use of natural and upcycled materials. In this exhibit, the artists invite our community to examine and reflect on their own unique relationships with nature.

Cindy Fuerstenberg is a fiber and mixed media artist who finds inspiration in the heartbeat of the land and the inhabitants who came before and live to teach us. She uses organic processes to alter textiles and fibers to achieve her subject matter. Her goal is to share history, science, and endangered species concerns through her work.

Andrea Canter is a photographer and mixed media artist who finds inspiration in the interaction of surfaces and textures found in nature and seeks to reinterpret or reinvent reality. She uses photographic composites and an array of materials on canvas and wood panels to attain her personal, multi-layered compositions.

Carrie Price Schwert, 'Beauty in the Ordinary: Paintings from the Pandemic'

Upper Lobby Gallery

December 2, 2021 – January 2, 2022

Opening reception: Thursday, December 2, 6-8pm

Artist Talk: TBD 

In this exhibition of gouache paintings, Carrie Price Schwert examines the beauty of everyday activities and situations:

I'm interested in how experiencing the Covid-19 pandemic has influenced my idea of home. Having spent the last year almost entirely at home with my family, in a small space with limited engagement with the outside world, I've created art work that focuses on that environment. Dynamics between family members became the subject of my work. My daily walks became a source of inspiration as I found respite in meandering the neighborhood. Life became simpler and more ordinary and this is depicted in my work.
