Giant rooms, open doors, banquet tables filled with elaborate desserts, napping girls, Francis Bacon-like cubes, hovering humans and birds of varying scales — these are some of the elements that occupy the curious and curiously inviting spaces within Elizabeth Shreve's wonderful paintings.
"The Mysteries of Flight Revealed" is Shreve's second solo show at the gallery inspired, in part, by the Wright brothers and the human desire for flight. The cheerful, confectionery colors belie a psychological undertow, a response to Shreve's surroundings in rural Wisconsin and her background in psychology.
Also on view is "Wallflowers," a group exhibition focused on the flower in contemporary art by area artists.
