CURRENT EXHIBITS

June 8 - July 13

Bryan Carson has two artistic visions. One is focused on the integration of the human form and of the mysterious qualities of submersion, water, and its beautiful creatures. This work represents a stage in between reality and dreams or consciousness and unconsciousness when thoughts are neither fact nor fiction but seem to be a combination of both. Carson’s figurative works hint at clues showing the detrimental effects humans have on the animals represented. His animal subjects are iconic, offering messages of the things that sustain and threaten the animal and its environment. Works by Bryan Carson will be on display June 8 through July 13 in the Community Gallery.
