MAR Rebecca Rippon:
Good Omens

Mar. 1- Apr.16, 2021


Susan Tonkin Riegel:
Devoted Timelessness
(Community Gallery)

March 2- April 18, 2021
Artist Talk: March 19, 3:30-4:30 PM via Zoom

Susan Tonkin Riegel’s residencies in Paris over two years have yielded a dynamic new series of abstract mixed media work. Her compositions vibrate with gestural lines, both drawn and stitched, and saturated areas of color on paper and other surfaces. New two-dimensional work includes elements such as letters, symbols, and enigmatic figures, and two-sided pieces mounted on stands called ‘Stand Alones.’

Judith Foosaner: Decameron
(Main Gallery)

March 2- April 18, 2021

While in quarantine this past spring and summer, Foosaner began to paint large sheets of cardboard on the ground with painterly calligraphic marks. By cutting the sheets into shapes and tacking them up on the wall, the artist noticed that her arrangement seemed to create a playful choreography of animate shapes in her studio. Foosaner will bring both her mixed media collages and this installation to the Pence for a closer look.

This exhibit is sponsored by Wil Uecker & Karen Fess Uecker.

Layaway Plan for Artwork Purchase

If you are interested in purchasing one of our available artworks, but are not in a hurry and would like to make payments overtime, we offer a wonderful layaway program.

First, staff will clear the layaway sale with the artist. A down payment of 30% of the total purchase price will enable clients to secure an item. Patrons can make payments with cash, check, or credit card for up to 90 days. After the deposit is paid, patrons can make equal payments, or pay off in full, during this 90 day time period. A layaway contract will help you outline a payment schedule that works for you and the Gallery. There is no charge for the Layaway Plan. The down payment is not returnable once it is paid. Any other payments that are made on the artwork cannot be returned if the buyer decides not to purchase the artwork.

This Layaway Plan is available, subject to approval by staff and Artist, for any piece that is $250 retail and over and can be safely stored.  All purchases must include sales tax (8.25%).

Once the balance is paid in full, you will be notified to pick up the artwork.

The Pence Gallery accepts the following methods of payment:

– All major credit and debit cards, including

– Cash, and personal checks with identification
