Capitol Contemporary Gallery is a diverse group of talented artists offering exceptional works in painting, multi media, photography, sculpture, jewelry, and furniture.
Capitol Contemporary Gallery is pleased to present a new show titled Land & Body, presenting oil paintings by Karen Eastman and cut paper collages by Lorelle Rau. Eastman’s paintings reference the grace of the female form, and Rau’s work abstracts the mountain landscape and presents it in striated form. The opening reception will be on First Thursday, March 5th, from 5-9 pm featuring wine by Coiled Wines. The show is free and open to the public and will run through March 30th.
Capitol Contemporary Gallery is pleased to present a new show of artwork featuring paintings and sculptures by John Taye and encaustic and mixed media paintings by Karen Bubb. Memory—losing memory, gaining memories, and the changing nature of memory—is an underlying theme of Karen’s recent body of work. John enjoys still life, landscape and figure painting, as well as sculpture in wood and bronze. The opening reception will be on First Thursday, February 6th, from 5-9 pm. The show is free and open to the public and will run through February 29th.
Capitol Contemporary Gallery will launch 2020 with Beautiful Mud, a new show of artwork by guest artists Geoffrey Krueger, painter, and Kerry Moosman, potter. Krueger will be exhibiting a variety of realist and abstract paintings. Primarily a landscape painter, this past year Krueger has been making small abstract collages, and this is the first time he will be exhibiting these works in a gallery setting. Known for creating large-scale sculptural terra cotta earthenware vessels, Moosman brings impeccable technique, patience, persistence, and commitment to his craft, often spending six weeks burnishing a single pot with a small agate before it is bisque and sagger-fired. Beautiful Mud is free and open to the public and will run through January 21st.
