Peter Bushell 

DECONSTRUCT   I   ACCORD                                                       

May 4 – June 16, 2018

Opening Reception: Friday, May 4, 5 – 7 pm

Bushell's current creative efforts challenge the norms of letter forms and letterpress printing. Instead of utilizing type as words and paragraphs to be read, he explores individual letterforms as elements of abstract compositions allowing letters to fall off the page. The visual results are dynamic and colorful abstractions which push the conventional letter forms away from familiarity.

Cathie Haab                 

Wingding: Some Small Quilts                                                      

May 4 – June 16, 2018

Opening Reception: Friday, May 4, 5 – 7 pm

Cathie Haab is a quilter and artist from Hudson, Illinois. Preferring colorful printed fabric, she makes contemporary quilts which express her thoughtfully humorous take on common human experiences of discovery, doubt, life journey and just plain fun.

The quilts depict some humor, some fun, some encouragement to hope, some different color combinations as something unique to see and think about. The movement conveyed in the quilts is inspired by the fun and freedom birds have in flight, the motion of spinning and twirling, and even the sensation of vertigo which may come in celebration or working through despair.
