Mono + Mono Artwork by Wade Carter and Harold Lohner

One-of-a-kind prints drawn from photographs are the centerpiece of this show by Wade Carter and Harold Lohner. Carter’s monotypes are self-portraits, using images of his face and body in strange and humorous ways, often printed on found washcloths and towels. Lohner’s work draws from found images of other men, collected and sorted with an eye toward recurring gestures and poses.

 

Carrying On Artwork by George Strasburger

“Human nature interests me in how it doesn’t change despite a changing society. My work illustrates our commonality,” says Tucson painter George Strasburger. In this exhibit, his classical paintings deal with modern themes and characters, with each narrative scene depicting interaction and existence in a world where we carry on in a timeless manner.

Opening reception: March 16, 5:30-8:00 pm
