This exhibit is free of charge and will be open to the public from October 4th to November 11th, 2007. An opening reception with the artists is planned for Sunday, October 7th from 1:00 to 4:00 pm and will include refreshments.

 Meighen Jackson – Michigan artist Meighen Jackson’s two-dimensional works are developed through various processes including collage with sumi ink drawings and various torn papers. She captures the energy and rhythm of nature in a blending of eastern and western traditions.
 Norma Penchansky-Glasser – Capturing the gestural quality of a moment in the movement of the human figure has been the focus of Penchansky-Glasser’s work for some years now. Her bronze figures capture the subtle variations, stress, strain, and relaxation of the position and movement of a figure in dance. These transitory moments are what she strives to realize in her sculpture and drawings
 Barbara Miner – Miner’s work utilizes multiple media ranging from books and twigs, to ceramics and cast-off, found objects. She states, “The materials I have chosen are significant in their own intrinsic evocative powers. In these pieces I strive to meld the materials, images, textures and colours into works that will invite reflection and a desire to touch.”
 Margo McCafferty is a practicing printmaker and painter from Emlenton, Pennsylvania. Her paintings are rife with meticulous detail and attention to nuance. Her tightly rendered paintings evoke subtleties of form, color, and texture inherent in the natural subjects that she portrays.
Deborah Orloff – In a new body of work Deborah Orloff creates ambiguous landscapes through the layering of multiple photographs. “These ethereal images include representations of paths, roads, and woods that are combined digitally to create surreal, new spaces. These invented landscapes symbolize junctures in life when our clarity of purpose is compromised and we must reexamine our aspirations as well as how to pursue them.”
