Space in Time
February 22 – April 1, 2024
Reception – February 29, 5 – 7 pm
Jonathan Levi Rutherford creates beautiful and functional artworks from his chosen medium: wood. “The process of woodworking from living tree (as an arborist) to finished sculpture (as an artist) means discovering hidden treasure. Every felled log and solitary piece of lumber was once alive. Its grain is a map of growth and experiences, struggles to survive, and journey through time. I seek to maximize the beauty of that journey through new forms, delaying the decay through creative expression. It is my joy to take my space in time to preserve and honor the subtle beauty of another space in time, that of the original tree.”

FABRICated: Works by Virginia Derryberry and Marcia Goldenstein
May 30 – July 8, 2024
Reception – June 6, 5 – 7 pm
Derryberry and Goldenstein connect the ideas of women’s work and empowerment through image, concept, fabric, embroidery and other hybrid media. Their work explores the ideas of body, identity, personal stories and what is considered “craft” and “fine art.” Derryberry works on vintage handkerchiefs and painting/fabric constructions that include narrative components and symbols from alchemy. She creates non-specific story lines of a virtual, shifting world where nothing is quite what it seems. Goldenstein creates a portrait catalogue of iconic women who chose the challenge of professional careers in art and as activists while eschewing the acceptable domestic crafts considered “women’s work” with which they are portrayed. Sponsored by Dr. Richard and Marilyn Glass.
