In the Niche: KEVIN FLETCHER, “GLASS WORKS”
Kevin Fletcher’s sculptures unite the complex and associative nature of line and the dynamic energy of glass. Works like “Radiate” exploit the similarities between the animate light of neon with that of molten hot glass. Fletcher has a B.F.A. in Glass from the Appalachian Center for Craft and a B.A. in Business Administration from Marist College. He has also studied glass at Penland School for Crafts, Urban Glass, and Franklin Pierce University. See more of his work at www.overallglass.com.

In the Pegasus Gallery: MARI SKARP-BOGLI, “ARCHITECTURE OF A MEMORY”
Mari Skarp-Bogli’s “Architecture of a Memory” addresses the subject of memory and its operation within the human brain. Her paintings, sculptures and interactive drawings employ abandoned locations, discarded materials and objects that transmit associations of loss, abandon and decay. These works are assemblages of memory evoking relics of attics, basements, barns and the garages of home in as much as representations of the physiological, psychological and neurological functions they interpret. Skarp-Bogli earned her M.F.A. from Maine College of Art and a B.F.A.in paining and a B.F.A. in sculpture from the University of Hartford. See more of her work at www.mariskarp.com.
