I am adding 3 works by Wisconsin artist, Pamela Murphy. I first saw her work at Fine Line Gallery in Door County and was so impressed with the imagery and technique of her work. In her words, "I collect old photographs and choose figures from them for my paintings. The people whose lives are recorded in those pictures are strangers, yet they are familiar to all of us. They remind us of ourselves, our families, and our issues on both personal and cultural levels."
"The figures in my paintings are presented on a surface that is rich and textured. Many layers of paint reveal the history of the canvas and create a space that serves to isolate the form of each figure. My subjects have been disconnected from their original context and are recreated as icons for the viewer’s personal connection. Each viewer brings with them their own specific history, so a single image can mean different things to different people. The figures in my paintings exist in situations—or as objects—in which I hope the viewer will find a little of themselves."
Sarah is an artist from New York and this will be the first showing of her work in the Midwest. She is a figurative painter that specializes in the human form. Her aim is to illustrate the process of thought and contemplation in an attempt to connect the viewer of the painting and provoke the viewer’s own internal questioning.

Oil on Linen
A new cow from Sam Dolman, my UK Cow Connect. Once again a fantastic portrait of a subject he paints and excels. I had an opportunity to see two of Sam's cows purchased by good friends and big fans of the gallery. The two paintings were above the bed with a dark wall, good lighting and looked like they were commissioned for the space. It is always refreshing to see an art patron invest in something they love to see everyday.

In his sculptural work, Bruce Chapin explores the mysteries of the universe, the known and the unknown, meaning and lack of meaning. Working primarily in wood, Chapin keeps his methods simple, hand carving each piece and finishing it with acrylic, milk paints, or encaustic.
"The more I create, the less I reveal. I find the universe a strange and marvelous place. I am still trying to figure it out. The workings of the known universe make complete sense to me, and simultaneously seem completely absurd."

Randall Sexton will be the featured artist for the June Gallery Walk.
"A 'painters’ painter', Randall is one of the premier contemporary California landscape painters, also paints still-lifes, figures, and portraits with equal mastery. His work evokes deep feelings, whether it’s the solitude of a deserted street at night or the exultation of a beautiful landscape, each speaks softly to the viewer.”

I am pleased to add the unique sculpture of Mark Beltchenko. Mark has created commissioned works for churches, corporations, casinos, libraries and municipalities in addition to producing his own bodies of work. He has participated in visiting artist programs and workshops.
His 2 works in the gallery combine the natural forms of carved limestone and steel implants. The smooth, almost pillowy, carved limestone is supported or almost cradled by steel structures that seem threatening and yet provocative.

Rob Day continues his development as a painter with an exhibit of new works at Eye On Art Gallery in Carmel. His exceptional paintings display his highly developed style of painting in the Tonalist tradition. Tonalism is rooted in the French Barbizon movement, which emphasized atmosphere and shadow. The Tonalist style is distinguished by the use of middle values of color as opposed to high chroma and stronger contrast.
