Carol Brown Goldberg: Recent Sculpture
September 18, 2014 - January 4, 2015
Carol Brown Goldberg’s process is based in a curiosity with physics and the cosmos which informs her work across a range of media. In her sculptures Goldberg stops time and readjusts our perception of the world. Assemblages of found objects, the works highlight both her meditative process and examination of scale. Once completed, the ordinary becomes poignant and preposterous at the same time.
Carol Brown Goldberg: Recent Sculpture was organized by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC.

Luminous Landscapes: Paintings by Larry Leach
October 18, 2014 – January 4, 2015
The luminous landscapes of Larry Leach (American, b. 1945) exert an almost palpable tension between abstraction and realism, a perspective that is simultaneously blurred and precise. This tension is also inherent in his painting process that juxtaposes layers of warm colors with cool tones, capturing the subtle movement and shifting light of the outdoors.
Leach’s love of nature was inspired by his childhood on a rural and isolated Louisiana farm. He has an MFA from Northwestern State University, Natchitoches, Louisiana. Leach is currently an Educational Advisor for ColArt America, Inc. and has taught the Fine Arts and lectured on Art History for Brevard Community College, Lamar University, Beaumont, Texas, and was tenured Art Faculty at Louisiana State University, Alexandria, Louisiana. His paintings have been widely exhibited including the Armory Art Center, West Palm Beach, Florida; Museum of Art, Alexandria, Louisiana; Museum of Art, Dunedin, Florida; and the Art Museum of Southeast Texas, Beaumont, Texas; and are represented in numerous private and permanent collections including the Foosaner Art Museum, the Florida State Department of Revenue, Tallahassee, Florida; Southeast Texas Museum of Art, Beaumont, Texas; and the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission, West Palm Beach, Florida.
