    Ken Mabrey
    Ken’s work documents the public and private aspects of the American scene in the tradition of Bellows, Hopper, Bishop, Marsh and Sloan. Sometimes tempered with fantasy, the artist takes mundane, everyday events such as eating and shopping and translates them into a joyful with light and irony. Figures move and turn in space through a world flood with light and activity. A full, rich palette is used to enhance his environment full of movement and change. The viewer floats above a scene that vignettes itself into separate worlds that are woven together by mark making, textures and ligh passages. These pieces establish their own mythology, a baroque burlesque of modern urban life in America.

    Scott McClurg
    McClurg is a photographer focusing on the natural world. He uses the beauty of avian forms and the individuality of their personalities to create an emotional connection with the viewer.
