Yatika Starr Fields – Six new large scale paintings made of vibrant colors and incredible movement. The works weave between abstraction and representation as you look deeper into his bold brush strokes that seem to swirl around the canvas.

Harry Fonseca – Nine works on paper, and one large scale painting. Mostly focusing the last body of work Fonseca made before his untimely death in 2006, the drip and splatter paintings on paper and canvas. Grid of nine works on paper displayed and large Right of Spring canvas.
