Five Artists / Five Visions
Kathryn Mohrman, Barbara Pliskin, Pete Seligman, Joyce Wellman and Cristy West
January 30 - February 24, 2019
Five wonderfully talented artists joined the gallery this year.
Photographer Kathryn Mohrman says her images of women in different parts of the world "portray my 'sisters' in our shared humanity.” Barbara Pliskin aims at creating "an emotional outburst in the viewer that is close to my feelings about the painting.” Many of Pete Seligman’s constructions are made from found materials: wood, metal, collage and oil paint, "but often begin with art accidents,” he says. Joyce Wellman populates her mysterious work with "seemingly random numbers, marks, words and symbols, in varying degrees subdued vs. vibrant, or cool vs. hot, in search of a magic poetic art." And Cristy West's exuberant abstracts are “expressions of feelings, mysteries and things unseen -- they emerge from many layers of work.”
Five Artists/Five Visions fills the walls with distinct artistic viewpoints by five new members who have honed their skills and ideas over many years of practice.
In addition to Five Artists / Five Visions in the main gallery, Foundry's second gallery provides an array of artwork by Foundry's talented member artists. Often frequented by active art collectors, Members Gallery exhibits change monthly and all work is for sale.
