High Caliber—January 1-31

January 1-31, 2020. Opening Reception and Meet the Artists: Friday January 3, 5-7pm. Free and open to the public. At first glance, Jeanne Garant’s Mist is a simple graphic, long vertical bars of varying degrees of darkness.  The “mist” is a translucent wash that oozes and drips over the top quarter of the painting.  Taking a step back, however, and skyscrapers emerge.  Side by side, in each other’s shadows.  The simple geometry of the bars is made organic with the natural edge of the mist descending.  It is lovely and clever, and transforms something cold and hard into something soft and peaceful.
