Kaylee Dalton: Lush
Dalton’s process involves many hours making numerous watermedia paintings and encaustic monotypes. Encaustic paint (hot wax) is directly applied onto an anodized aluminum plate heated on an electric griddle. A print is then pulled from it. Each monotype provides a sense of movement. Simultaneously, layers of watered down acrylic, gouache, ink and watercolors are poured on papers and plastic sheeting generating depth but also unplanned natural markings. Pieces of these monotype and papers are collaged with ink drawings and patterned textiles creating a whimsical and lush abstractions. She strives for strong textural contrasts reflective of the various surfaces found in nature and the differences in people.

Mark Rospenda: Breathing Room
Since 2011, Mark Rospenda has been working on a project inspired by the Gubbio Studiolo (ca. 1478-1482), an intricate, wood-inlaid room on permanent exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. One of the Gubbio Studiolo's original functions was as an aid to associative thinking. Through inlaid paper drawings, cast paper objects and paper pulp, Rospenda has been imagining what might exist within his own, personal studiolo. The works on view in this exhibition are fragments of that space — moments within a stream of thinking and forgetting.
