Art opening reception: Dimensions Variable
Dimensions Variable is a group exhibition asking the age-old question, "Does size matter?" Artists Vincent Falsetta, Orna Feinstein, George Grochocki, Dmitri Koustov, Steve Murphy and Charlotte Smith will each present multiple works in their established style but in a range of sizes, from small, intimate, tabletop pieces to large, wall filling works.
As artists change their scale, will the work's content, context and/or meaning also change? Gallery visitors will be able to see and decide for themselves.
Vincent Falsetta has been successfully exhibiting work since 1972. A professor of painting at North Texas University, Falsetta is an abstract artist who focuses on a deliberate process of continuous linear flow of color.
Orna Feinstein has dedicated her artistic pursuits to the study of geometry found in nature through the traditional practice of monoprinting using non-traditional materials like Plexiglas, panels and fabric. No longer limited to a two-dimensional realm, Feinstein creates kinetic sculptures, site -specific installations and interactive works that move and vibrate into the space of the viewer.
Working between the cities of Warsaw, Poland and Houston, Texas, George Grochocki has constructed a body of work in the tradition of "one-image" systemic paintings. Grochocki purposefully limits himself to the colors white, black, silver and gold.
Russian-born Dmitri Koustov is an intuitive artist of abstract oil paintings who now lives and works in College Station. Through various processes and techniques, Koustov creates a composition riddled with movement and texture.
Geometric shapes have intrigued sculptor, Steve Murphy, since 1979. The contrast of industrial materials welded into sleekly curving sculptures allows his work to not only be strong but graceful.
On view through March 16.
