Kevin Cole

"Soundtracks of Color" is a fascinating survey exhibition of 20 years of works that address social and political issues with respect to sight, sound and color as well as how color relates to our past and how we deal with the issue of color.

According to Halima Taha Ph.D. author ofCollecting Works on Paper and Canvas (1998), Kevin Cole, works in a range of mediums, uses repetitive forms and color to create three dimensional structures that invite those who experience his work to reflect upon abstracted references to a necktie used for status, beauty, fashion and the destruction of human life. She further states that "Cole's work celebrates history, survival, and a personal memory of a time and place."

Two Generations: Sarah Carson/Drew Carson November 3 - December 31, 2017

Sarah Carson is truly a remarkable photographer with an eye that sees where the rest of us should be looking. She reminds us to look beyond the obvious—to not focus on what everyone else is focusing on. Through Drew, Sarah’s adult son, we really get to know Sarah. She is a mother first, and then a photographer but together…they are artists. The parallel in their works of art is simply… uncanny. Similar images, shapes, likenesses. So many connections you would think that Sarah and Drew worked often in the same studio, rather than on different sides of the country. Are these connections with their works of art coincidence? Are Sarah and Drew connected as Mother and Son? There are also many differences in their work. Sarah’s images are shown mostly in black and white, while Drew’s are in vibrant colors. Drew creates hard lines, while Sarah captures soft natural landscapes. But the similarities are what create the connections and capture the TWO GENERATIONS: Sarah Carson/Drew Carson.
