Dara Tesse, “Sakura Bride” – Terracotta with Majolica Glazes

The show–featuring 50 works selected from more than 700 that were submitted–is comprised of a broad variety of media including painting, sculpture, mixed media, ceramics, works on paper, photographs, prints, and more. Says curator Roger Tucker, “I believe that art is transformative. What’s exciting is how the visual and theoretical direction of today’s artists, and their evolving art practice, are informed by their nationality/ethnicity, the Internet, technology, rapidly evolving global political changes, the environment, and revised perceptions of gender. This global perspective delivers a wide range of unique and compelling artworks that make my ongoing involvement in art and art education a life’s mission.”

Allan Gorman, “Lavender Shadows on a Half-Timbered Building” – Oil on Panel
