Ted Weller - Ted Weller paints images of soldiers with black enamel on sheets of burnished aluminum. The images begin as small linear ink drawings that are increased in size 40 times to create dramatic representations of action. Unlike the soldiers, viewers experience moments of conflict from a tense but secure distance.
Majorette - 2006
acrylic on canvas
45 x 70 inches (114 x 178 cm)
Robert Anderson - Robert Anderson’s new series of paintings SIGNS & DIRECTIONS draws inspiration from images recalled from growing up in New Jersey. His fantasies of adventure at that time included heroes like Hopalong Cassidy and Buck Rogers who were brought to life by radio shows and TV serials. As he grew so did the US highway system, opening up the promise of new adventures in the west. Cars, motorcycles, Route 66 and roadside America became his inspiration and are featured in the new paintings. Road signs point the way and tie together sections of post-war pulp fiction illustrations with images of the old West, Hollywood cowboys, pin-ups and science fiction.
Slow Day at the Garage - 2002
cast iron, steel, copper and brass
23 x 18 x 18 inches (58.5 x 46 x 46 cm)
Dennis O'Brien - Dennis O'Brien’s sculptures are an ode to an industrial age America that is no more. Each metal work is mechanical and rugged. Each is functional as a light source. Raw materials and found objects are cut and drilled to make devices of wonderment. Some of the lamps dim while others turn only on and off, but it is how they do so which is intriguing and unique. Incongruous items, with antiquity their only commonality, work in concert.

Fred Scruton - Fred Scruton travels extensively with an 8 x 10 inch view camera and produces highly detailed photographs documenting vernacular works of art, architecture, and commercial signage. Finding unique and surprising images, which are confined to the street by the conventions of mass media, these photographs celebrate inventive, often humorous and idiosyncratic forms of street-level communication.
Jean-Pierre Seguin - Jean-Pierre Seguin creates a portrait using beads, buttons or thousands of pieces from different jigsaw puzzles to produce or obtain, on the same surface, a figurative and abstract version of his subject. He achieves a concrete and realistic result from an abstract context and thereby derives a conceptual work.
