Upper Gallery Exhibition
new work by Marvin Saltzman
Opening September 27, 2019
Exhibition thru October 30, 2019
This is the culmination of Marvin's work from the past year. At 88 Marvin still paints every day and for the past year he has been working on a new body of work that is a departure from what you expect.
Inspired by his view of the sound side of Sunset Beach, Marvin eschews his usual oeuvre of brightly colored canvases. This new work emphasizes the essence of his work. These paintings are distilled to the strong backbone of his signature mark making and glyphs.
Professor Emeritus Marvin Saltzman's distinguished career spans more than 60 years. Born in Chicago, Illinois in 1931, Saltzman studied at The University of Chicago and The Art Institute of Chicago from 1954 to 1956. He received his Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Southern California in 1959
Lower Gallery Exhibition
Vicki Essig | Treasures in Silk
Vicki Essig weaves silk with selected objects to create her diaphanous framed works.
Vicki's handwoven silk assemblages are imbued with barely detectable messages.
Working on a loom she weaves fine silk, antique manuscripts and selected objects into her work to create intricate structures that weave past into present organically.
There is a reverence for nature in these finely woven works.
Vicki states "These small overlooked treasures are archived into my fine handwoven cloth where they are suspended in quietude."
