Lannie Hart: Steel Lace runs from February 24 through March 23.

A reception for the artist is scheduled for Wednesday, March 5, from 4:30 – 6:30 pm. A gallery talk will be given at 5:30 that evening

Images of the female figure as angel, virgin, siren or warrior are omnipresent in history and myth. Lannie Hart’s sculptures and paintings explore these archetypes using found objects, welded steel, porcelain and clay. These pieces are heavy and sharp, but retain at the core the heart of the woman portrayed. While they are meant to be symbolic representations of these categories, they also retain an element of uniqueness, each figure becoming a individual through the use of sculpted body parts and the irregularity of found objects.

Hart describes the pieces as the interpretive study of woman as a symbolic image; allegorical narratives which originate from her rural beginnings in the South where she learned from the women in her family to use objects found in the home and in nature to create art.

Lannie Hart has been a working artist for over 35 years. She began her career in the cosmetic industry as an art director and package designer. This experience, as well as her work with jewelry design, porcelain and soft sculpture, informs her sensibilities as an artist. Her work has been shown in numerous solo and group shows in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.




Allan Gorman: Revved Up and Ready to Rumble runs from January 21 through February 16.

A reception for the artist is scheduled for Wednesday, February 5, from 4:30 – 6:30 pm. A gallery talk will be given at 5:30 that evening

In this body of work, Allan Gorman seeks to dissect the machine. His abstracted compositions romanticize the mechanical, chrome and steel captured within the edges of the canvas. While silently separated from their means of use (the car, the motorcycle) each composition purrs with potential energy. His work owes a debt to photo-realist painters such as Charles Sheeler, whose precise examination of factories made him one of the fathers of modernism. Gorman updates this style using the products of later 20th century industry.

With a background in advertising and graphic design, Gorman focuses on the pure form of the machine. Color, shape and reflection create tension between positive and negative spaces, heightened by the cropped nature of the compositions. His work is about the essence found within objects, rather than the objects themselves.

Since 1987 Gorman has run his own ad and design studio, Brandspa, and has won numerous advertising awards including the Clio and the Andy. His is a self-taught painter that has exhibited and lectured nationally.
