In Our Galleries

Morning Market: The Work of Women

Paintings by Lori Lander

Exhibition: June 5 - August 29, 2014

Gallery Reception: Thursday, June 26, 2014, 6-8 PM


Lander's paintings showcase the beauty and grace of not only the morning hours, but also the women living and working in them each day. After travelling to various locations around the world, Lander has sought out the morning markets and created a body of work that embodies the light, color, and movement of these women and the atmosphere surrounding them.

From Russia with Art: Etchings from Moscow

Alexander Vetrov and Stanislav Nikireyev

Exhibition: June 6 - September 2, 2014

Gallery Reception: Thursday, June 26, 2014, 6-8 PM


Vetrov blends color tactfully and artfully into his etchings, without taking away from the etching itself. Scenes of Russian villages, churches in ruins, his home, his mother, in the different seasons of the year, are all captured by the artist discerning eye.


Stanislav Nikireyev, born in the Russian Tambov Region, his black & white etchings capture all the seasons of nature and its creatures both from the past and from more current eras, producing many diverse and beautiful country scenes.
