What lies beneath the surface of a work of art? The answers are infinite. Scott Farrell, Mary Nomecos, Donna Quinn, and Katherine Stanek present work in Beneath the Surface that have more substance than layers of ink, paint, concrete, pastel, and pencil that physically comprise them. There is more here than meets the eye.

Mary Nomecos' brush strokes may seem random, but she is a purposeful composer whose notes dance across her canvases. Nomecos works intuitively, relying on her innate compositional skills while endless thoughts and decisions guide her brush. Join us to unveil what lies beneath the surface of an idea, an emotion, or a work of art.

Through the process of interacting with these environments and reconfiguring painted surfaces, Quinn presents a unique body of work that can be personalized to fit any collector's vision.

Katherine Stanek's 3/4 life-size sculpture I Am. A woman with bangs stands inside an obelisk with Middle Period Egyptian hieroglyphic text that translates to a poem.

Whether working spontaneously or methodically, Katherine Stanek navigates the never-ending search for personal growth and resilience in the works presented within her "Identity" series. Stanek's work is nuanced and meaningful. The above work, I Am, exemplifies this with its hieroglyphic translation of an original poem written by Stanek herself.
