The third Pioneer Building exhibit of the season celebrates the interplay of texture and form in a wide range of media, including Western landscape painting, two- and three-dimensional formal abstraction and origami-influenced collage.

Visitors will find much to surprise and delight the eye—from the dramatic contrast of light and shadow in the late Nancy Denzler’s landscapes and animal studies to the dappled color shifts of Holly

Swangstu’s wall hangings; from the sensuous tactility of Katrina Lasko’s wall sculptures to Mary Ellen Palmeri’s charmingly innocent paper tableaux.

The public is invited to a Public Reception in celebration of the artists on Saturday, May 4, from 5.30 to 7 PM.

The exhibit opens Wednesday, April 24, and remains on view through mid-July in the Pioneer Building Lobby and Suite 109, located at 100 N. Stone Ave., M-F from 9.30 AM to 4.30 PM.
