Donna O’Grady

June 2 – June  26, 2016

Reception:  June 4, 6-8

“Confluence” accurately describes the work of the four artists who are part of the hob’art gallery’s upcoming exhibition. The convergence of the various mediums takes you on a journey that joins together in unity their passion to create a story in photography, digital media, stone and paintings.

Starr Tucker-Ortega: Starr’s photography includes tonal qualities, textural components, and layers that mimic a painterly process. She strives to create ethereal and infinite spaces into which the viewer is transported to another world; another reality.  Her new work evokes a haunting light and plays with depth and altered perspectives.

Jesse Ensling: Jesse’s art expresses his love of nature.  He loves working in stone and from his travels he looks for stones that are hard to find and high in quality to enhance his designs.

Janet Kolstein: Her giclee prints are the product of assemblage, digital photography and computer manipulation.    She uses old postcards, photos, pages torn from books, etc. that allow her to play with the notion of narrative and character.  The foundation of her latest work is a 1970 movie still from “The Secret of Dorian Gray”.

Donna O’Grady: Her paintings incorporate antique ceiling tiles that frame her portraits and landscapes.  Using underpainting techniques to capture light and atmosphere, her pieces capture mysterious snapshots of the mind.  Her recent work depicts meadows and the ruins of the Great Bay fish factory in Tuckerton, NJ.

Gallery hours are Thursday to Sunday, 1 to 5pm and by appointment. The artists thank the Monroe Art Center and the hob’art gallery for their support of this exhibition.
