    April 17 – May 23

    Artists’ Reception on Gallery Night, Friday, April 17 from 6 to 9 pm

    Doug Hatch is best known for his realistic paintings of urban scenes. Working in his studio from photographs, Hatch employs traditional methods of photorealism using strong diagonals, reflected surfaces, and transparent components to elucidate vibrant street scenes. Influenced by Edward Hopper and Richard Estes, Hatch is particularly interested in interpreting daily life. Vibrant, detail oriented and filled with movement, the paintings of Doug Hatch capture a place and time of day, perfectly.

  • Ron Isaacs – Other Selves: New Trompe l’Oeil Painted Constructions

    Ron Issacs

    April 17 – May 23

    Artists’ Reception on Gallery Night, Friday, April 17 from 6 to 9 pm

    In his second solo exhibition at Tory Folliard Gallery, Ron Isaacs continues his 30+ year career of constructing and painting wood to resemble architectural clothing and other antique objects. Purposely devoid of figures, Isaacs invites the viewer to question what they are actually seeing. In this master’s hands, wood appears to be fabric, and leaves and branches are actually carefully constructed details. Combining trompe l’oeil painting with master wood assembling, Isaacs presents new sculptures that quietly demand a careful look to determine their true nature.

  • Mark Forth – New Paintings

    Mark Forth

    Mark Forth’s quiet figures occupy serene interiors filled with beautiful light. A minimum of curious objects hint at mysterious questions but provide no answers. Subtle coloration and striking detail are exquisitely rendered in these poetic paintings.

  • Laura Dronzek – New Paintings

    Laura Dronzek

    September 11 – October 10

    Laura Dronzek‘s new collection of landscape and still-life paintings are intimate in size, but offer views of grand themes suggested with richly layered surfaces. The Artist says, “It is the mystery found in the commonplace, the extraordinary in the ordinary that is worth examining.” Her fictitious landscapes are composed of the most basic features: a horizon line, a sky, and a subject, but so carefully rendered, that each one is precious.
     
     

  • Flora Langlois – Paintings

    004

    September 11 – October 10
     
    Flora Langlois is a resident of Costa Rica whose first inspiration is the natural world. Depicting surreal creatures and characters amidst intensely detailed tropical fauna, her paintings suggest mystical tales and magical places. “I love nature,” says the artist. “Each painting comes from my imagination or remembering a certain bug or flower. They evolve on the board spontaneously; things just emerge. It’s more fun!” This convivial outlook shines through in her work. Her new exhibition features oil paintings and works on paper.
