Vivid Interpretations is the January exhibit at River Gallery, featuring Mike Berry, Algar Dole and David Swanagin.
There will be an opening reception on Friday from 6:30-8 p.m. The snow date is scheduled for Saturday from 2-4 p.m.
River Gallery is at 400 E. Second St.
The January exhibition features three artists using various media to explore a multiplicity of references, from land and cityscape painting to traditional glass blowing techniques - all united by a passion for color.
Mr. Berry depicts cityscapes in motion, punctuated by searing headlights, blurred traffic, and fleeting neon signage in pastel. At times surrealist in perspective, Mr. Berry's ephemeral depictions of daily life are presented in richly colored, cinematic compositions.
Glass has taken Mr. Dole through years of intensive study in traditional cane glasswork and zanfirico techniques, processes that employ a bright and varied palette and intricate, textile-like patterning. His vibrant glass works range from vessels to sculpture.
The evocative oil and gesso paintings of Mr. Swanagin range in style from representational to impressionistic landscapes in sweeping, vibrant color on wood panels and masonite. Mr. Swanagin's use of stark contrast, textured surface, and intuitive line result in sensual, inviting scenes.
The event is free and open to the public
