Michael’s background in the plastic arts has given him a fascination with materials that compels a closer look. He magnifies a minute area of a painting, to reveal abstract compositions that occur organically in the work. Alluring patterns, colors and textures are center stage in his photography, seeking to lure and tantalize the eye.

Local Women in Abstraction
Artist Reception: Tuesday, March 13, 7-9 pm
In recent years, many art institutions have sought to give recognition to women artists who historically were not represented in important collections, exhibitions, or books. This exhibition seeks to build on this momentum by celebrating local female artists investigating various mediums and modes of abstract expression. Line, shape, color, texture, space and form are the universal tools that these artists employ to communicate the ethereal, the mundane and the simply sublime.
