Creative Impulses: The Beauty and Power of Art

A lifetime of painting and formal experience has laid a strong foundation for Carl’s creative impulses from which to draw. This exhibition demonstrates his deep admiration for the works of the great master painters throughout history, and consequently, comes across as an autobiography of his own life. Their techniques and approaches have greatly influenced the development of his own individualistic style which is evident in the wide variety seen in his works. Carl’s love of color, balance and rhythm make his paintings powerful, alive and vibrant.

Opening reception Friday, February 5, 5:30-8pm

Eileen Schlag

May 13 – June 10, 2016
Zen Series

In her painting, Eileen explores different subject matter from her interpretation of the natural world to the more introspective, surreal world of the Zen Series. In her landscapes and still-lifes, she aims to convey the wonder of the natural world and more recently the wonder of children at play in that world. The paintings in the Zen Series are inspired by Buddhist and other words of wisdom which to Eileen are very visual. They give her the opportunity to tap into the subconscious places of both spirit and nature.
