May 3rd – June 4th

First Friday:   May 3rd, 5-8 pm.

Sue Springer creates quirky ceramic sculptures which are mostly figurative, with a whimsy and freedom of unexpected combinations. Dreams, imagination and wonder combine with a response to the current world to tell the stories of these figures.  Sue, founder of the former Illahe Studios and Gallery now lives and works in Seattle, WA.

Gestural strokes and spontaneous marks collide with color blocks in Robert Koch’s narrative vignettes. Often prompted by found photographs, Koch takes the liberty to make his subjects humans or creatures inhabiting the same world. Having the appearance of quickness and even naiveté, Koch’s deft drawing skills mean each mark is playful and intentional at the same time
