Jaye SchlesingerGOUACHE PAINTINGS
Jaye Schlesinger

Jaye Schlesinger is a full time painter living and working in Ann Arbor. Her work includes realist oil paintings of common everyday objects and abstracted subjects portrayed in gouache (opaque watercolor) on paper. This recent body of work evolved from years of photographing rooftops, playgrounds, houses and aerial views, and digitally manipulating them to create colorful and quirky compositions. The scenes are not intended to be specific locales, but rather to celebrate the color, shape, rhythm and structure found in our daily environment. Gouache is a medium which requires slow and careful application and reflects the artist’s view of painting as a meditative pursuit.

Candace Compton PappasWHAT WE HOLD, WHAT HOLDS US: HOMES & VESSELS
Candace Compton Pappas

Although Candace Compton Pappas is recognized primarily as a painter, this series of constructed homes and vessels represents an important facet of her life as an artist. Over the years, she has collected, saved, garbage-rescued, and gathered objects that capture her attention. A firm believer that there is no such thing as garbage, and a great observer of nature’s cycle of creating and breaking down, she has constructed numerous cement vessels to hold all these objects that proliferate the studio. These finds, the vessels that hold them, and the totems that pay tribute to them, all keep her company, inspire her, and keep her calm in her temple-like studio in the woods outside of Chelsea, Michigan.

Ellie HaroldBIRDS FLY IN: OIL PAINTING
Ellie Harold

Birds first flew onto Ellie Harold's canvases in 2016, appearing to her as intuitive messengers of hope and healing for troubled times. She paints intuitively to music, spontaneously, with no plan in mind and with as little thought as possible. She sees the first marks of black calligraphy as the hint of a language revealing bird wisdom hidden beneath successive layers of color. She paints the white layer last, unifying all of the elements in the painting. Harold uses not only a brush, but also fingers, squeegee and oil sticks to capture the fleeting nature of birds. An ordained Unity minister, Harold aims for this series to inspire the discovery of inner solutions to difficult issues that have so far eluded resolution by ordinary means.

Anne Mondro FLORA SERIES: WOVEN WIRE SCULPTURE
Anne Mondro

Anne Mondro is an artist and a professor in the U-M Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design. In this body of work, she reflects on how time spent in nature has inspired new personal discoveries and intellectual curiosity, while serving as a positive distraction from recent experiences with grief and sadness. Drawing from these insights, Mondro crocheted and stitched fine wire to create intricate woven sculptures reminiscent of seeds, pods and other organic forms. Focusing on the wonderfully complex construction of these forms, Mondro mimics nature’s ability to be structurally strong while delicate in appearance to invite deeper exploration.

Martina CelerinMIGRATIONS: FIBER NOTES FROM THE JOURNEY
Martina Celerin

Migration has profoundly affected the life and perspective of the Michigan-based fiber artist, Martina Celerin. Celerin’s family emigrated from Czechoslovakia to Canada in 1968 as political refugees escaping Soviet rule. Both a molecular geneticist and artist, her artistic medium is a sophisticated blend of highly dimensional weaving, crochet, needle felting, and other fiber-based techniques that incorporates everyday reclaimed and recycled materials to help tell a story. The pieces on exhibit are drawn from a larger body of work that translates the extraordinary challenges of modern-day human migration and notes the parallel phenomena in animals.
