"Passion of Simplicity" is Featured in September

We have a great pairing of artists for our September featured show. Roberta Babcock and Sue Jensen bring their passion for simplicity and their experience with their media to these two new contemporary collections.

Roberta Babcock will share her new series of elongated fiber clay figures with a focus on the figures' emotional connection. She conveys feelings and attitude without a lot of detail, but rather through her choice of color, shape, and movement. Roberta worked for over a year on this collection and will introduce it to the world at Art On Broadway! She considers this work a study in minimalism.

Sue's pieces represent a challenge to work with a different palette. Instead of her usual focus on red and warm tones, she challenged herself to work with hues on the cooler side of the color wheel. At the same time, however, she trusted the form-making that she knows and loves, and continued to paint her favorite subject - nature at its simplest.


Visit with Sue and Roberta at a reception in their honor on Saturday, September 7, from 6 to 9 p.m. Enjoy wine, appetizers, and an evening of wonderful artwork. Their show continues through September 28.
