Paintings by Hedy O'Beil

Hedy O’Beil’s work is a study in the tension between control and exuberance, as if watching an improvised jazz masterpiece unfold before your eyes. Her work has been recognized with awards from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation (twice), the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Florsheim Art Fund, the Reger Foundation and others.

Landscapes by DP Warner
Nov 7 - Dec 23, 2023

Working primarily in oil paints, the artist seeks to capture the mood of a subject, just as a musician tries to interpret the feel of a piece of music.  The subject observed could be from our surroundings, something that may go unnoticed, or an intimate setting which has grabbed the artist's attention.

Punctured Pots: Osteoporosis Series
Nov 7 - Dec 23, 2023

The implosion of American political discourse, the threats of the plague years, and the guerilla-warfare attacks of old age, all bear on the forms in my two most recent series.

Works by Thomas Hart Benton

On Loan from the US Naval History and Heritage Command

Moved by the attack on Pearl Harbor in December, 1941, Benton completed seven large paintings known as the “Year of Peril” series.  These were published as books and posters by Abbott Laboratories – a pharmaceutical company that was producing necessary and improved drugs for the war effort.  The president of the company found a way to give back to the war effort by sponsoring artists to depict military subject matter for use by the Department of Defense public relations.  For Abbott Labs, Benton created 25 artworks, showcasing what he witnessed on board the submarine USS Dorado and LSTs along the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers.  These original paintings and drawings were turned over by Abbott Labs to the Navy and comprise the artwork within this exhibition.

Sculptures by Jan & Mark Weisner
Mar 26 - May 16, 2024

As sculptors, these artists respond to the world visually, texturally, and with volume. As humans, theri responses are to both the outside world as well as to our interior world. The result is sculptural forms that are both intimate and personal in their telling of universal tropes.
