Drips + Daubs: Painters Mary Zeran and Dena Tollefson Explore Nature

Tuesday, November 1, 2011-Saturday, December 31, 2011

Regional artists Mary Zeran and Dena Tollefson have created an exhibit that explores what it means to examine nature. Their paintings portray acts of exploration, seeing things in a new way. Although their methods and materials are different, the common link is their innovative approaches to leaving a mark on a surface. The marks are daubs of color and layers of drips. They combine these marks to create a bigger picture. Both artists are adventurers in color, exploring the palettes found in nature and imagination, delighting in combining the two to make something new and fresh.
