Opening Reception: Tuesday, April 19,

“Creativity on the Road,” is the basic premise for the work of Steven P. Perkins, who uses the word lifestyle as the living spirit of a place that is absorbed – immediately, spontaneously and, transparently – during travel. Perkins consciously sheds his ego in favor of being a chameleon, observing and reflecting. His willingness to share his creative process is the key to his recent commissions that have taken him to Thailand, China, Taiwan, and most recently India for an on-going transcultural, multimedia Lifestyle Art Project.
Steve Perkins has been a multimedia artist and teacher for 30 years, working
primarily in the San Francisco and New York City areas. Mr. Perkins has a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Film Division at Columbia University. His wry look at men and masculinity titled a man ought to know that . . . is in the permanent collection of artists’ books at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

FLUX AND FLOW
March 8 – April 9, 2011 Opening Reception: Tuesday, March 8, 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
Artist’s Talk: 6:30 pm
This series of images is comprised of abstractions from the natural world, representing objects ranging from the microscopic to the macrocosmic. The use of a traditional pointillistic technique, in a computer paint program, allows the creation of a visually textured environment in which compositions are reduced to their essence. In an attempt to depict the unseen – the inner tension of molecules at play, the jostling of subatomic particles, the mysteries that lie at the threshold of perception and the extents of the universe – attributes which transcend the underlying rhythms of matter.
Ms. Faranda’s artwork has been exhibited throughout the New York metropolitan area as well as Washington, DC and France. Most recently, she has exhibited her work in Transitions – Pen and Brush, 2nd Anniversary Show, MOCA (Museum of Computer Art) Brooklyn, and Close-ups – Small Works Show at the Brooklyn Artist Gym.
