Opening Reception: Thursday, November 15 from 6:00-9:00 pm

Abstraction and realism unite these six artists under the bonds of architecture. Abstract digital photography by Jennie Baresse presents sinuous designs and flowing colors, while Laura Salierno’s photographs from the Plaza Hotel series depict the reality but evocative remnants of the abandoned hotel rooms of New York's legendary Plaza Hotel. Matt Kern's original photographic collages utilize polaroids applied to canvases, which are manipulated by etching and painting the surfaces creating a single unified work of art. Realist painter, Jason Bryant, explores perception through his large scale cropped portraits of celebrity faces, flowing material and movie stills. New York cityscapes and interiors balance abstraction and realism with the exaggerated architectural and light features exhibited in Kellyann Monaghan’s paintings. Paintings in oil and resin on wood
by Jeffrey Leonard round out the show with geometrical designs and smooth surfaces.
