July 2009: Shalene Valenzuela & Kelly Neidig

Shalene Valenzuela’s ceramic work consists of quirky pieces that reflect upon a variety of issues with a thoughtful, yet humorous tone. Much of her imagery is pulled from sources around the 1950’s era; images of the “perfect Americana life”

Kelly Neidig paints abstract landscapes. She focuses more on color and less on shapes presenting little information to the viewer. Neidig is more interested in the idea of these places than the details, and creates work from her memory and imagination.
