  • May Gallery, 7190 E. Main Street
    Featuring the artists Scott Wallis and Susanne NybergScott Wallis’ paintings can be described as colorful, intense, vibrant and even aggressive. His impressionistic style makes you feel like you’ve been or want to be in each scene. He creates a vision of harmony with such elements as color, texture, light, surface interest, and balance, resulting in exciting works of art.Susanne Nyberg is a “Plein Air” painter, derived from the French term “open air.” This style of painting requires the artist to work with extreme rapidity to capture the light and mood of the scene before it changes and vanishes forever. She accomplishes this using oils and palette knives.
  • Mainview Gallery, 7120 E. Main Street
    April 9
    Dusty Kinman
    Never using a brush, Kinman works strictly with painting knives. Unlike most knife artists who have an “impasto” style, using a heavy build up of paint, Kinman endeavors to create as much detail as possible using the least amount of paint. This results in crisp, clear, sunlit paintings which invite the viewer to enter the scene and smell the flowers.

    “Everything is Fine Here”
    Opening Reception, April 2
    Open for viewing until April 30This body of work stems from a non fictional novel that Casebeer has underway. Artworks and marginalia as a working outline for the book are about the proverbial elephant in the room, this new body of work will have elements of mental mapping by way of illustration, the writing of related stories surrounding the question, ‘Is it just the brain, or is it something else.’Casebeer is an artist and a writer whose work explores meaningful coincidence. Her mixed-media paintings are composed through a process that begins with a few words, book scraps, color, brush strokes and drips, and then builds through layers of paint, found collage pieces and overheard sentences until eventually they reveal an order and a narrative, and a curious, synchronic relationship to one another.
