February 2003: Gabriel Fernandez, oil paintings Richard Schemmerer, fused glass

Gabriel Fernandez's will be showing  recent oil paintings.  Titled "Quiet Spaces", his work will explore the images, beauty and loneliness of deserted spaces.  Examples of these scenes include empty rooms, chairs and urban landscapes.  

The show is an exploration of the silent scenes before and after dramatic moments of our lives Richard Schemmerer will be presenting works in glass.  One part of his presentation will be works constructed of fused and slumped glass.  His forms are abstract and colorful. He will also be exploring glass in a variety of constructions.  Schemmerer explains that "fused glass represents the illusion of seemingly separate worlds... it melts like heated glass to form a new creation."
