Corson sculpts the human body to explore the human condition. He creates his figures as vessels for inner emotional life, revealing it in every contour and gesture. The works in this show have been pit-fired, adding rich color, sheen and visual depth to the emotional content of his forms.

Time and Distance
Carolee Jakes presents a series of paintings inspired by the following poem: “Time / Orders life / Events and places / Are categorized / And stored / In our memories / As we drive westward / Distance stretches before us / And time is / Compressed / Closer to the destination / Farther from the Past…”
Yuno Baswir’s new paintings are the result of his continued exploration and effort to use the act of painting as a way to remember and to praise The Creator. There are two main forms in his latest paintings, namely round shape or circular form, and a straight vertical line. These two forms have specific meanings for him. He takes inspiration from rituals in Islam and verses from the Qur’an, the holy book of Islam.
