“My paintings are lyrical, atmospheric abstractions of meditation and memory. They are meant as portals to the rhythms and mysteries of our lives and oases from our hectic, complex, fragmented world. They explore those moments when we release our tensions and ease into clear, quiet spaces beyond words.” - Karen Hansen

"These are particularly trying moments in our lives. We have the isolation that has come with Covid-19 as well as its threat to our health and to our economy. Also among our stressors are massive wildfires in the West and historic hurricanes and flooding in the Southeast. On top of all that is a contentious, fragmented political atmosphere. It’s no wonder we feel anxious.

My latest exhibition is entitled Still.Together. The paintings are offered as serene resting places from our hectic, complex world. They are moments of reprieve." - Karen Hansen

"My practice is rooted in the Process Art movement. I paint, glue, sand and tear away multiple layers of paintings. I often collage rust, plastic, fabric and other materials to that compound surface. This particular mixed media piece is made of: paper, cheese cloth, rust, rope, Oil acrylic graphite and color pencils.


The rigorous process of tearing finished paintings, adding and rebuilding layers of unlikely materials in order to merge the distressed surface into one coherent image, metaphorically alludes to the power play throughout history. It is about forces that tear the fabric of societies, and the creation of new reality from the old fragments. It invokes the reexamination of cultural legacies and historical events and their weight on the present. - Nurit Avesar

"A passion for Billboards, blurs, distorted landscapes, graffiti, the unusual began when I started capturing random fleeting images while in motion day or night, and, sometimes just standing still and finding a surprise. Then, playing with these images, melding them together to tell a story that imprints and sustains itself in the eye of the viewer who then finds their own story. My three digital photo collages in this exhibit provide an artistic outlet of letting it out, letting it go as we all strive to keep it together.” - Susanne Belcher

"For that which endures
For bringing light to stories untold
For those who keep alive that which is sacred.

Inspired by the magic of Sassi di Matera, Italy, which dates back to 7000 BC, this painting, epic in size, aims to raise awareness about the history of this ancient place where homes are dug into the rocks and are among the first settlements of humans in Italy 9000 years ago." - Brooke Harker

"These 2 self portraits illustrate the journey I have taken in order to become the artist I am now.

They are ink drawings which were returned to me 30 years after I created them.

I invite you to take a close look."


"I cut wood to make relief into an imaginary landscape.

I cut earth to make a garden where people walk and find relief.

Here, I honor the legacy of my father and fuse his imaginary woodcut images with mine

To synthesize a new vision of landscape."
