June 30 - August 20, 2016
Summer Show features new works by Alfonso Fernandez, Julia Garcia, Minku Kim and Jennie Jieun Lee. The paintings and ceramic sculpture in the exhibition showcase the artist’s decisive hand, the classical form and its deconstruction. These experimental compositions are charged with a tension between formal sensibility and visceral emotion, in which moments of figuration are occluded by darkness, color, glazes, pours, drips and mark-makings.

Carol Miller Frost
November 19, 2014 - January 10, 2015
Exploring the luminosity, ambiguity, and relativity of space, Carol Frost’s “Shifting Light” is a body of abstract paintings that explore the physical presence of light. Painting in a reductive manner by limiting her palette to monochromatic color schemes, Frost plays with ideas of optical illusion and spatial ambiguity with layers of hard-edged and dissolving planes of color. At first glance, there is a disarming simplicity to the work, however further investigation reveals a complex pictorial space that can be disorienting, as well as provocative in its negotiation between simultaneous expressionism and reductivism, emotion and intellect.
Frost has exhibited extensively throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and at a national level at institutions such as the McClean Project for the Arts (McClean, VA), the Delaware Art Museum (Wilmington, DE), and the Kennedy Museum of Art (Athens, OH). Her work belongs in numerous public and corporate collections including the Baltimore Museum of Art (Baltimore, MD), the Musée Cheateau de Rochefort (Rochefort-en-Terre, France), and the Univeristy of Richmond Museum (Richmond, VA).
