Lawyer-turned-artist Amy Sabrin reduces the elements of coastal topography to dynamic shapes, values and vivid hues in her fresh, modern take on watercolor. Bordering on the abstract, these landscapes capture the light and feel of beach, bay, marsh and sky, with a minimum of information and a bravura approach to color. Make no mistake - these are not your grandmother’s watercolors!

“Pictures of Nothing” Paintings by McCain McMurray
Once used to describe the atmospheric work of J.M.W. Turner, ‘pictures of nothing’, reflects a common expectation that one sees a recognizable image in a work of art. My work, on the other hand, is an attempt to abstract those images to generate an evocation of a place, experience or memory for the viewer.

Pair-ings by Steve Alderton

"Pair-ings" focuses on the chemistry between works of art.  A chemistry that is hard to describe -- but you know it when you see it.  Individual works (in this case, paintings from both new and earlier series), when combined, can highlight new elements in each other, expand on each other's narrative, or excite the senses perhaps because of an artful pairing of opposites.  It's an exploration of art-based synergy.
