Go Figure: Conversations From the Wall,” is a solo exhibit of paintings by artist member Barbara McLain, whose artwork emphasizes figurative expression. Her recent work investigates the figure utilizing repetition through imagery, gesture and composition. She surrounds each figure with a unique atmosphere, created via her expressionistic mark-making. Although each image conveys its own message, McLain says: “During the process of creating these paintings I discovered conversations taking place between the images, and continued to explore this concept. As a result, the paintings are displayed in related groups in the gallery, where viewers can participate in the visual conversations taking place on the walls.”
Painting is McLain’s way to explore the human spirit in its journey toward truth, and we invite the public to experience these evocative paintings. The exhibit is free to the public.
