Christy Broy: Angels and Aliens
Now through April 16, 2017

Christy Broy explores recognizable characters from film and television in a way that attempts to forget their larger than life personas and focus on their individual human experience. Her acrylic paintings draw influences from the stylization of classical portrait painting and the bold lines of comic art creating a juxtaposition of the serious and fantastical.

Now through April 16, 2017

Linda Lawler creates science fiction and fantasy themed portraits, often using family members and friends as models.  These works feature symbolism from Greek and Roman mythology to interpret normal, everyday people as modern-day of gods and goddesses.

These displays are available for viewing free of charge; admission is not required.
