Group Show "Hue"
September 10- November 1, 2019
The group show “Hue” highlights the work of three vibrant colorists, Oklahoma based artist Irmgard Geul, Louisiana based artist Tracy Jarmon, and Ohio based artist Dakota Pratt. The mixed-media works of international artist Irmgard Geul are best viewed as colorful aerial maps capturing, on paper or canvas, a bird’s eye view of her internal creative explorations scanning the tracts of landscape below and the unfathomable ocean of sky above. Tracy Jarmon’s fascination with religious and spiritual allegory is incorporated in his work; a combination of acrylics, oil pastels, spray paint, and a search for language through colors and symbols. Dakota Pratt’s whimsical everyday objects are enticing pieces of fine art focusing on functional sculptures and contemporary furniture.
