A self-taught oil painter, Joellyn T Duesberry’s long and distinguished career took her around the world while establishing herself as a regionalist. Exhibited are both well-known landscapes and rarely seen works that reveal the subjects that continually inspired Duesberry to revisit them on the canvas and in person. Her plein air locales focused on the northeast and western United States, while utilizing the winter months to create monotypes to experiment with abstraction.
This exhibit is curated by Brenda LaBier.

Chasing 360- Exploring the Creative Process of Five Colorado Abstract ArtistsArtist Reception: Saturday, September 8 6-8pm
The inspiration for this exhibition evolved out of the artists meeting to connect about their work and process. Artist Jessica Magee coined the phrase “Chasing 360” as a metaphor for the feeling an artist has as they work- in a sense, as if they are chasing their tail or running in circles. While some artworks seem to come together effortlessly, often there are a multitude of variations and experimentations before a painting finally comes full circle and feels “finished.” The artists included in “Chasing 360” allow themselves to surrender to this process, making the resolution in their work unpredictable and intriguing. Artists included in this exhibit: Kristen Abbott, Deidre Adams, Molly Berger, Jessica Magee, and Julia Rymer. For more information and images click here.
