Patricia Prendergast, River Reflection
Grounded in the concept that everything in the universe is a manifestation of energy which we interpret through our senses and technology, Joseph Bellacera has created several series of work that reflect his interest in changing light into matter, and matter into light. In large-scale mixed media works and digital prints, the artist turns his observations of the natural world into intriguing configurations of color, pattern, and texture. Using materials as diverse as wood, concrete, hydrocal, and clay, Bellacera constructs forms that alter and build upon geometric solids, covering them in a heightened range of colors.

Adrienne Van Summern exhibits a new series of portraits and still-life oil paintings in her show, Quiet Moments. Van Summern is an artist well-versed in the techniques of traditional fine arts. Inspired by historical realist painters such as Titian and Rembrandt, she captures portraits and figurative subjects with equal adeptness. Each piece shows her interpretation of an individual, a mood, or a story, that seeks a deeper understanding from the viewer.
