Wax & Wane: The Art of Kat Allie

Opening Night is August 4, 2017 from 6–10pm at Obelisk Home

Show runs through end of August

“In this new series, “Wax & Wane”, I challenged myself by limiting color and creating shapes, lines, and textures only using black, white, gold, and silver. The subject matter is found within the 8 phases of the moon as well as the symbolic and emotional relationship between humans and the Moon’s lunar effects. Cycles of waxing and waning flow through our lives creating moments of action and energy yet they are balanced by times of rest and reflection. My process of encaustic painting also becomes an organic cycle of layering beeswax and then scraping away at the surface to reveal translucent surfaces. Creating harmony between all of the elements is where balance and beauty exist.”

Perspectives: The Art of Christie Snelson

Opening Night is September 1, 2017 from 6–10pm at Obelisk Home

Show runs through end of September

“My focus has been on the cosmos not only because the imagery is a new, stunning, and an enjoyable challenge but also because of the reflections it evokes. For this series, I used images from the Hubble telescope; the more I see and study, the more in awe I am of the vastness and mystery of the Universe. It is difficult to grasp all that is out there especially when there is so much strife amongst ourselves on this tiny rock. I know everyone sees the world through a different lens, but aren’t we all really the same?”

Modern Iconography: The Art of Mary Hamilton

Opening Night is October 6, 2017 from 6–10pm at Obelisk Home

Show runs through end of October

Modern Iconography is an eclectic series of paintings that illustrates my selection of familiar or iconic images and classical themes. The universally understood subjects are combined with organic surroundings or collaged with found objects that suggest a cycle of change or transformation.

The variety of elements in my paintings tries to show the network between what our culture once treasured and what now seems obsolete. It also attempts to show how those iconic images influence our stream of consciousness and our shifting interpretation of the modern standard of worth.

Clouds Full of Nostalgia: The Art of Jared Gillett

Opening Night is November 3, 2017 from 6–10pm at Obelisk Home

Show runs through end of November

Some of us look back with a sense of longing for simpler times of nostalgia and excitement… Others look forward with awe and wonderment of a future of technology and anticipation with our heads in the clouds. Who we were, who we are and, where we will go. This body of work attempts to capture those moments as travel through our lives.

Barriers and Brushes: The Art of Dustin Burgert

Opening Night is December 1, 2017 from 6–10pm at Obelisk Home

Show runs through end of December

My goal for Barriers and Brushes is to show the light and dark side of each piece. Separated by a barrier each half has its own character and flow but at the same time a likeness to each other that brings it all together.
