It is up to our art advisors to link a multitude of genres of art together for an unexpected, impressive statement. In the spirit of our September-October show, "Dawn to Dusk", we've curated some examples of how pairing divergent duos can create a compelling collection!

Dawn to Dusk: On display September 20th - October 20th


JOHN C. TRAYNOR & NED MARTIN

Two very different, very technical painters - John C. Traynor and Ned Martin find much of their inspiration in nature. Their color palette is similar, and there is a vibrancy and light in their paintings that feels almost ethereal. Both artists’ work are introspective and serene, and each of them show their deliberate brushstrokes.


STACY MILBURN & ANTONIA TYZ PEEPLES

FEATURED: (left) "Coastal Prominence II" by Stacy Milburn, (right) "Elixir" by Antonia Tyz Peeples

Both of these artists work with reflective surfaces, but in different ways. Stacy Milburn's canvas is a mirror, which observes the viewer and demands their participation in the artwork. Antonia Tyz Peeple’s work showcases reflective and soothing water that is so realistic, it beckons the viewer to reach out and touch the linen canvas. By taking one step closer, and the viewer can imagine seeing their own reflection gazing right back at them.


ROGER MUDRE & DELADIER ALMEIDA

FEATURED: (left) "Pulsatilla" by Roger Mudre, (right) "Harmony and Invention" by Deladier Almeida

Much can be said about Roger Mudre and Deladier Almeida's work, such as the sweeping movement and gestural quality. There is a sense of calm, contrasted by an energetic feeling of new life blossoming; as well as a love for paint and the many ways it can be applied. Both artists have a great color sense and create beautiful subtleties in their work.


RONALD TINNEY & JULIA CONTACESSI

FEATURED: (left) "Flight of Color" by Ronald Tinney, (right) “Mystique" by Julia Contacessi

The realistic depiction of nautical imagery and the abstract, side-by-side, creates a visually stunning pair! Whether the viewer's taste is leans more towards representational or abstract work, these two artists form a happy medium when placed together.


JASON YOUNG & CHRISTINE AVERILL-GREEN

FEATURED: (left) "Midas and His Honey, Matte" by Jason Young, (right) "Ancient History" by Christine Averill-Green

Jason Young and Christine Averill-Green have a layering process that generates an unconventional finished piece. Glistening golds produce an iridescent layer that reflects light when viewed from various angles.
