Join us for an evening of wine and good conversation with the artists! Ben Mosley and Kenneth Tom Olsen are both masters of pattern, shape, and composition. Both of these artists utilize stencils, stamps, and repetition of design elements to create rhythm and a sense of motion within their paintings. Ben will be visiting us from London and Kenneth will be here from his home in Denmark.

Lena Sotskova was born in Moscow in 1963. She was immersed in art and culture from a very young age, studying and traveling extensively from Florence, Paris, London, various Asian capitals, and many regions of her native Russia. Her exposure to the diverse, rich, and vast cultures of centuries of global art and music continued to mold her inherent artistic qualities. After her many years of formal education in art and a wealth of cultural experiences, she relocated to New York City where the vibrancy and excitement of the place coursed new life, impulse, and enthusiasm into the veins of her art. Looking at her work, you will be swept away into a world of romance and song.
Opening Reception with the artist Saturday, October 21st 7-9pm
This exhibition will be on display through Friday, November 17th
Local Austin-based artist Chris Guarino creates original cast resin sculptures augmented with found objects and mixed media elements. The work in “Addressing the Melancholy” is an attempt to process feelings of loss, emptiness, and pain. Only by confronting the source of our suffering directly can it be accepted and understood. These sculptures chronicle the artist’s journey from pain to acceptance, and embody the transformative effect of the creative process.

Kolazinski is a local artist influenced by the likes of Frank Stella, Ellsworth Kelly, and Joseph Albers. His distorted hand-stretched canvases break the flat plane of a traditional paintings and invert the viewer’s attention. Geometric compositions highlight the canvas form and allow the drama of the work to happen at the edges of the canvas, rather than within the field. These unique works must be seen in the round to be appreciated and understood.
