Seth Rouser: Hands Held to Empyrean

Through Oct. 9

SETH ROUSER: HANDS HELD TO EMPYREAN

This exhibit features paintings by Seth Rouser, an assistant professor of fine arts at Winthrop University. It revolves around clouds and baby blue skyscapes that have been disfigured by spastic lines and brush strokes. In the collection, Rouser attempts to symbolize time, change and human experience. In a press release, he says “A cloud accumulates, dissipates and is moved by unseen forces, much like a human life.” (Anita Overcash)

David Kroll: New Paintings

Through Oct. 31

The Seattle-based artist fuses landscapes and still lifes, but adds contemporary twists. Kroll goes deeper to juxtapose ideas about life, nature and the fluidity of change. Take, for example, his “Koi & Light Blue Vase,” which imposes a school of koi fish flapping above a vase. The fish flow freely and seem to represent natural and artificial, and ethereal vs. material. Reception on Sept. 5, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. (Anita Overcash) Free admission
