IN THE MAIN GALLERY

Lynda Schlosberg: Zero Point Field

Schlosberg's new works present themselves as self-generating macrocosms that embrace the simultaneous presence and absence of all possibilities.

In these paintings Schlosberg meditates on the philosophy that nothing ever dies and that everything is connected through a never-ending unified field of energy. Our perception of reality emerges from this field and it is through our focused attention that we bring things into form. Since we get to freely choose what we want to see, there is infinite potential to create any reality we desire. One only needs to look.

In a quantum world the Zero Point Field is an omnipresent energetic substructure. It is the lowest possible energy state where all matter has been removed and no particle movement should remain. Yet no particle ever comes completely to rest, every particle is forever in motion due to an endless ground-state field of energy that continually interacts with all subatomic matter. What this means is that the Zero Point Field becomes a mirror image and record of everything that is and ever was. In a sense, it is the beginning and the end of everything in the universe, a basis of oneness.

Schlosberg's process-oriented paintings are built one layer at a time, one color at a time. Organic backgrounds of pooled color are superimposed with solid, amorphous forms that are covered with thousands of small dots, dashes and circles. Her choice of colors and geometric patterns conform to self-determined rules that are driven by, and are in response to, the preceding layers. It is through the mass accumulation and combination of individual marks, and the process of weaving the layers together, that larger patterns emerge and dissipate. Each work is a sea of oscillating particles, a formless state of swirling energy, out of which its own unique sense of potential becomes manifest.

IN THE CENTER GALLERY

Peggy McClure: A Sense of Place

The idea of entropy has intrigued McClure for years. She grew up in a quiet, leafy suburb that had both open countryside and steel mills within a short driving distance and she has long been fascinated by that dichotomy: the noise of the declining mills versus the peace and quiet of nature, and by the transformations that take place in both of these environments. She is attracted to rust and fragments, to the patinas and the altering of shapes that occur with deterioration.

In photographing ordinary places, Peggy McClure looks for relationships and incongruities, and the intersections of form or content. Formal issues such as color and line, as well as a bit of whimsy are the artist's guides as she arranges photographs of places altered by time and activity. In dealing with her subject, McClure is interested in both embracing the landscape, as well as the search for the order of things, that is, a metaphysical sense of place in the natural and man-made worlds, both of which are constantly changing.

IN THE MEMBERS' GALLERY

Ilona Anderson: Home Land

Exploration of internal, external
place, space
outside inside?
Back and forth between time and place,
Between South Africa, and America
All integrated, part of the whole
Exists in the imagination.
Imagination, linking past, present, maybe future
All we really know is now.
Home.
The dot in space.

I am  a Buddhist, a South African and someone who lives in America, I feel my space between these areas.

I ask: How do we negotiate these spaces, this dot in space.
