Meditations on Daily Splendor: Sarah F. Burns, Sarah Fagan, and Karen Rycheck

February 19- March 25, 2016

Reception: Friday, February 19, 5-8pm

 

The Rogue Gallery presents three local artists who express the contemplative and sublime in two-dimensional works. Sarah F. Burns beautifully depicts florals and still lifes in her traditionally rendered oil paintings. Ordinary objects are painted with reverence and precision in Sarah Fagan’s acrylic paintings. Karen Rycheck creates elegant abstract mosaics in organic slate.

Sarah F. Burns studied contemporary art at Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland and academic realist drawing and painting at Ashland Academy of Art. She uses the process of traditional oil painting to create beautiful still lifes. Sarah F. Burns explains her work “I hope to create pieces that people want to live with in their daily lives. I am deeply inspired by artwork from the past, and I hope to pay it forward by creating objects of truth and beauty that will last for many, many generations.”

Sarah Fagan received a BA in Fine Arts and English Literature from Stonehill College near Boston, MA. She uses common objects within abstract compositions to instill atmospheric acrylic paintings. Sarah Fagan states of her work “I choose to paint, pair, and group objects that are universally recognizable: thus with the potential to hold deeply personal narrative or meaning for each viewer.”

Karen Rycheck has a BFA in sculpture from Webster University. She owns MissMosaic which specializes in mosaics and ceramics. She uses slate, marble, and other organic materials in her mosaics. She describes her work “I create both representational and abstract art, and begin a work with a general concept, giving myself space to develop the piece as I’m interacting with it. Focusing on design, texture and color as my guides, I allow myself more room to play in my abstract work.”

 

A reception for the Rogue Gallery opening in Main Gallery exhibit will be held on Friday, February 19, 5:00 – 8:00 pm. Wine, Rogue Creamery cheese, and Harry and David snacks will be served.
