Color Clarity

Nelson Patrick Cain, Pauly Cudd, John Niemi

Bright vibrant colors distinguish the diverse work of Nelson Patrick Cain, Pauly Cudd and John Niemi. Yet each uses a unique medium for their creations: Cain embraces the freedom of high flow acrylics and tests them with intense heat. Cudd returned to glass blowing three decades after his first encounter and experiments with glass and metal. Niemi explores technological aspects of art through computer manipulation of blocks of color. Each artist creates a type of clarity for the viewer to experience.

On view: February 15 – March 24, 2018
Reception: Sunday, March 4 at 2-4pm
