Sara Allen, Photography

Brow (Forehead) | Photograph

Hand Over Hand (Folded Hands) | Photograph

“Sara Allen made snapshots over the years but left serious photography to ‘real’ artists. After the death of her husband and retirement from teaching English literature to middle schoolers, she began to think about creating images with a sense of purpose. Moving to a Nikon SLR, she began the long process of becoming a photographer.”

– Sara Allen

Sara Allen’s photographs capture the naturally aging body, with its creases, wrinkles, textures, and age spots. She frames the body in ways that make familiar parts, such as the neck, fingers, and back, feel like extraordinary foreign landscapes. Photographing in black in white allows for the viewer to appreciate the composition of each piece without the distraction of color. 

Allen’s series, FRAGMENTS, will be on view in our Community Arts gallery.

Birgit Raders-Eichinger, Painting

Roam, 2023 | Acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas
Birchwood, 2023 | Mixed media acrylic collage on gallery-wrapped canvas
Hidden Treasure, 2023 | Acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas

“I prefer contemporary composition and neutral colors with gold and silver. I enjoy bringing texture to the canvas and using different tools to develop the painting. I like to simplify and to reduce – that is where I am right now.”

– Birgit Raders-Eichinger

Despite having had a diverse professional history, from teaching culinary classes to being a private German language tutor, Birgit Raders-Eichinger has always had an inclination towards creative expression. During the pandemic, she made the shift from working in watercolor to creating large-scale paintings of abstracted shapes with large brushstrokes. She limits her color palette, primarily using black and white to contrast each other and create depth, and utilizing gold to accent and emphasize key elements within her abstract compositions. She notes, “When I do creative work, my mind relaxes beautifully. I love the process of abstract painting so much.”

Raders-Eichinger will be exhibiting her abstract paintings in our Kelner gallery.

Lauren Scavo-Fulk, Drawing

A Branch, 2021 | Charcoal on paper
Ripple, 2019 | Charcoal on paper
Overpass and Highway, 2019 | Charcoal on paper

“I am drawn to landscapes because they are both universal and personal; they are intertwined in both individual lives and collective histories, and are historically and culturally relevant in the art community and in the larger world. Though they are constantly changing, they are ever-present.” 

– Lauren Scavo-Fulk

Lauren Scavo-Fulk’s small-scale, hyper-realistic landscapes capture brief moments in time. She renders each piece with scrupulous care, highlighting quiet, intimate moments within commonplace and familiar scenes. From parking lots to overgrown highway guardrails and overpasses, Scavo-Fulk’s work also calls attention to the ever-present relationship of nature and humanity; “to depict the contrast between the objective depiction of nature and the subjective human element that is always present in our interpretation of our surroundings.” 

Scavo-Fulk’s graphite drawings will be on display in our Book Room gallery.

Kathran Siegel, Sculpture

Corsage, 2023 | Linden wood, gouache
Purple WrapAround, 2018 | Linden wood, acrylic and oil paints
Yellow Earth, 2017 | Linden wood, acrylic painted areas

“I like to mix vocabularies, searching for the syntax that will allow the languages of two and three dimensions to coexist [and] synthesize in my work.”

– Kathran Siegel

Though trained as a painter, Kathran Siegel began creating sculptural work early in her artistic career. Using power tools and large industrial machinery, she carves organic forms out of wood, and uses her exacto-knife for precision. This manual approach slows down production and gives Siegel time to reflect and revise. She states that “it is this process that keeps [her] coming back to the work.” Siegel’s manipulation of materials creates two dimensional works that exude a painterly quality with their organic, freeform shapes. Adding paint to highlight specific areas creates even more visual interest. The evidence of the artists’ hand is present in her artwork making the objects feel like unique hybrid’s which exist as both paintings and sculptures. 

Siegel’s sculptures will be on view in our Tile gallery.
