Cloudscapes: A Solo Show by Ewa Romaszewicz
December 11th - January 15th
When leaves fall, we look up into the sky
Majestic paintings grace our skies every day and it's imperative to notice just how much things change on the daily basis. When we're kids - we often search for hidden characters up in the skies, imagining whole worlds full of incredible story lines. Can we learn to stick with the habit into our adulthood? Perhaps through Ewa's masterful renderings of cloud-scapes we can dissolve into the skies more often.
Opening Party: Saturday, December 16th, 6-8pm.
November 10- December 11: Selected Sustainability
Nan Rumpf, Ewa Romaszewicz, Jennifer Jean Okumura, Karen Lee Sobol, Cate Raphael and Diana Stelin
For the inaugural show at Diana Stelin Gallery, 6 artists, including the founder and director Diana Stelin, tell a story of sustainability from a female voice. Highlighting female artists is an important part of the gallery’s mission, as they have been long underserved their accolades and recognition in the art world at large. Each artist showcased also has a specific emphasis on sustainability. Each communicate, in a different way, a message about the fragility of our earth. Some reference this thematically, some ideologically. It is important not to take the concepts literally, because there is no literalness in creativity. To ask of our artists to restrict their creative process to the confines of an overt theme would be as unjust as asking the viewer to do the same with their interpretive consumption process. We ask that you come with an open mind—open to your own creativity with regard to the way the art might move you—and enjoy an open-ended discussion about sustainability, the visible impacts of climate change, the lonely feeling of inhabiting a planet in decline.
