Carole Barrer & Mark Butler
June 6 – 29
Opening Reception: First Thursday, June 6, 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Expanse highlights two artists who explore space and color through meditations on nature, Carole Barrer and Mark Butler. Barrer’s paintings convey a sense of natural phenomena with interplay of color. Small intricacies of nature such as a wisp of cirrus cloud, transformed by changing light; filtered green sunlight in a deep forest; breeze rippled water; the variegated fur of a dog’s haunch are abstractly portrayed in her works.
Inspired by the sublime qualities of nature, Mark Butler’s atmospheric landscape paintings reveal his creative vision through loose layers of calligraphic brushwork that create pictorial depth which is both intimate and expansive. Subtle traces of color and form suggest a hillside, dense foliage, or the water’s edge attuning the viewer to memory, meditation, and meaning that is open for interpretation.

Harris Harvey Gallery presents Intimate Interiors: Women at Home by figurative painter Terry Furchgott. This narrative work captures secret moments of women alone in the most intimate of domestic interiors, evoking with solitude and silence a mutual relationship between that space we call “home” and the person who inhabits it. Shining a light on the quiet power of the Feminine, these images transform personal daily rituals and those everyday domestic tasks often called “women’s work” into moments of great beauty and dignity.
