Unity, at Art Times Two

Dan Zeller, in The Unity of Everything

When Karen Fitzgerald first told me about her idea for a show, The Unity of Everything, I was already on board. Karen and I are like-minded in many ways, particularly in our shared interest in visual lexicons that engage the viewer at multiple sensory points, not just the intellect. For this show, installed in a gallery space located within the Princeton Brain and Spine (Art Times Two), Karen had her eye on work that is strong and yet not aggressive, contemplative while still engaging.

So I wasn’t surprised to attend the opening on Tuesday night and find myself in visual bliss. Every piece in this show speaks to me, each in its own language. Several of the artists are already friends of mine, and the others are now part of the circle of work I want to look at, pay attention to, live with and learn from.

Well done Karen, and well done all of you: Nandini Chirimar, Lorrie Fredette, Elizabeth Mead, Liz Quisgard, Andra Samelson and Daniel Zeller.

  1. Congratulations Deborah! “strong and yet not aggressive, contemplative while still engaging”–totally nailed it.

      Thanks Cindy!

  2. innerstirrin’ stuff… thank you for the private viewing 😉

  3. “The Unity of Everything ” fits so well for a title to your show!
    It sounds like all the artists here were travelling in the same train and that each one gave in his own and personal way a report on the landscape they saw all together!

  4. Thank goodness you are, again, able to appreciate the visual. Do I notice some textural, though, as well–in your recent work? And I like Zeller’s paintings…they remind me of cellular structures, or brain imaging.
