How the Light Gets In

Alison Rector and Janice Anthony will talk about their work and how they create the illusion of light through the manipulation of of an opaque material (paint) on a two-dimensional surface. Their work is currently in How the Light Gets In, a two-person show at Courthouse Gallery. The lyrics from Anthem, a Leonard Cohen song, was the inspiration for the show.

There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in. —Leonard Cohen, Anthem

JESSICA LEE IVES: Watermark

Artist Talk: September 15 at 6pm

Courthouse Gallery is pleased to present its first solo show for Jessica Lee Ives. In her most recent series, Ives explores the figure as it moves through water—at the water’s surface, below and looking down from above—creating colorful ripples or exploding above a swimmer’s head like a jeweled headdress. These contemporary figures, combined with her exquisite portrayal of water, make Ives’ paintings fresh, exciting, and relevant. Catalog on request.
