Meet Peter Burega Saturday July 9th, 2016 from 1-3
July 2016. Stop by SmithKlein gallery and meet and see new works by artist Peter Burega. Mercurial by nature and obsessed with process, Peter turns out increasingly thoughtful, wildly expressive, and ultimately sophisticated paintings. He states, “Although my work is abstract, it develops from my experience and interaction with the land.” His work reflects moments taken from daily life, dreams, experiences, and visual impressions.
New Artist: CRAIG MOONEY
June 2016. Stop by SmithKlein gallery and see works by our new artist Craig Mooney. Craig’s paintings appear to be capturing a moment suspended in time.
While his work feels familiar, it is not specific. Rather it is, on a very basic level, symbolism of what could have been, has been or will be…
New Works by Lyudmila Agrich & Michael Bauermeister
AN URBAN PALETTE by Lyudmila Agrich
November 2015. Stop by SmithKlein Gallery and see the new works by Lyudmila Agrich. The main focus is to capture intimate moments in ordinary life. No matter what she is painting, a landscape, or a little cafe in an old European town, she wants her paintings to speak in the language of human feelings. She tries to avoid creating pictures that are just pretty. Instead she wants to communicate with people by evoking similar emotions and feelings in them.
CARVED PATTERNS by Michael Bauermeister
November 2015. Stop by SmithKlein Gallery and see new artist and works by Michael Bauermeister. These undulating wood panels are carved, sometimes turned, and finished with layers of tinted lacquer which is partially sanded away before the piece gets a final stain and many coats of clear finish. The panel is not quite flat but usually has the flowing quality of draped fabric or the surface of the sea.
The Magic of Origami with Robert J. Lang
Meet Robert J. Lang on Friday, October 9th, 2015 at 2:30pm.
Robert J. Lang has been an avid student of origami for over forty years and is now recognized as one of the world’s leading masters of the art, with over 500 designs catalogued and diagrammed. He is noted for designs of great detail and realism, and includes in his repertoire some of the most complex origami designs ever created. His work combines aspects of the Western school of mathematical origami design with the Eastern emphasis upon line and form to yield models that are at once distinctive, elegant, and challenging to fold.
One of SmithKlein’s renowned artist, Kevin Box, works in collaboration with Robert J. Lang to create some of the many works we have in the gallery today.
Meet the Artist: Hilario Gutierrez
September 5th from 1 – 4pm
Presentation by Hilario at 1:30pm
A Solo Show of New Work
Land grew out of Water to bring Life from the Sun; it was when the First Voices were heard.
The Sounds from the Wind, Rock, Insect and Animal were the Voices that Mother Earth heard.
Soon Man found Himself adding to the Sounds of Nature, mimicking its Vibration and Tempo.
With these paintings, I bring together the Abstract Story of Sound and Rhythm that draws Man to Nature.
I apply the paint to My Canvas in a particular way so that One can Sense what can be Heard by Seeing.
Hear the Color, See the Texture, Feel the Story of Mother Earth’s First Voices.
A Feathered Abstraction: New Works By Linda Israel
August 2015. Stop by SmithKlein gallery and see the new works by Linda Israel. Linda’s natural connection to the Earth is motivated by the beauty, and spark filled energy of being alive. Animals are so in the moment, simple and direct. They are pure consciousness’. Linda paints the peaceful, unconditional and simple souls of animals in heart. Linda has been inspired since she was just 3 years old, when she first started drawing animals.
