An Upcoming Exhibit is Shadows and Light:

Without the play of light on objects, all would be shadowed or dark.  We learn to recognize images by understanding light as it wraps around shapes and highlights the three dimensions of our world.  Two-dimensional paintings use these hints to conjure shapes and fool the eye. In what ways will you use or pay homage to shadow and light through your art?
