Waiting for the Veil to Lift: Selected Moments from the Wild by Donna Frostick

When Donna Frostick was a child, she was an animist.  She was convinced nature was alive, and speaking: in cloud formations, in wind patterns. It was just a matter of being astute enough to decode it. When it comes to nature and art, she hasn’t changed much. Whenever she is outdoors, she finds herself gravitating to scenes that suggest the world is a mystical place, ripe with potential revelations.

Seascapes by Alexangel Estevez 

Alexangel Estevez’s paintings are vivid with colors creating the sense of energy, yet the scenes are peaceful and serene. This series of seascapes communicate in many shapes and forms, from a calm quiet sea to rough breaking waves. Brushstrokes expressing emotions are like a language being written through the sounds of the waves. His goal is to take the viewer on this voyage and experience the scenes. This exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, West.

A Retrospective of a Future Career by Marie Kennedy 

Marie Kennedy uses the camera as her primary tool of choice to explore the wonders hidden in plain sight. She captures fleeting moments in time, free of any manipulation or editing, to frame the discourse between seen and unseen spaces. This exhibit will be in the Skylight Gallery.
