Paintings by Chris Graebner and Lolette Guthrie, blown glass by Pringle Teetor. August 27 – September 23.
Chris Graebner’s paintings are often based on images gathered while travelling. The paintings in ColorFull are drawn from trips, foreign and domestic, taken over the last ten years. “Working in the studio keeps me grounded,” says Graebner “I hope that tranquility is manifest to the viewer in these new paintings.”
The majority of Pringle Teetor’s pieces for this show are cane work, a centuries old Venetian technique of putting stripes of color and patterns into blown glass. “I’ve always had a broad color palette and here I am able to explore endless combinations of color patterns in clean lines.”
Lolette Guthrie is primarily a landscape painter. “Since I mostly paint from memory, my paintings are depictions of my recollections of the colors and the quality of light I experienced at a particular place and at a particular moment in time.
