Presence: Encounters with the Figure | Featuring new work by Barbara Grossman, NA + Charles Cajori, NA


Presence: Encounters with the Figure,” a new show that will run from April 12, 2018 through May 19, 2018. Curated by Ann Finholt this exhibition includes paintings, drawings and collage. Finholt has brought together seven artists who, as she puts it, “explore, deepen and challenge the instinctive human connection to representations of the figure.” In their own distinctive vocabulary, the artists balance the tension between representation and abstraction. There is always the presence of a figure in these works, but actual resemblance plays a lesser role, sometimes as abstract as a remnant or a mere suggestion.
The exhibition is sponsored by Northwest Community Bank.

The artists featured in the exhibition are Lexi Axon, Charles Cajori, NA, Helen Cantrell, Barbara Grossman, NA, Catherine Kehoe, Ken Kewley and Larry Morelli.

Five Points Gallery will hold two events in conjunction with the exhibition: an opening reception Friday, April 13, 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.; and an Artists’ Panel Discussion in the gallery on Friday, May 4, at 6 p.m. Gallery hours are Thursdays through Mondays, 1 p.m.-5 p.m., and by appointment. There is no admission charge. Five Points exhibitions and educational events are free and open to the public.
