On View: November 11 – December 11
Opening: November 11 | 6 – 8 p.m.

Seraphin Gallery is proud to present Nocturnes, a group show featuring selected pieces by Natalie Alper, Casey Matthews, Don Miller, Louise Nevelson, Laura Sallade, and InLiquid Artist Member Howard Silberthau.

As dusk opens the door to another realm where the hours of darkness linger, mystery, romance, and the senses heighten to an elegantly discordant harmony-not unlike Chopin’s Nocturnes. The mystery of night is best expressed in abstract form as soft repetitions rhythmically fuse into rich monochromatic compositions of both impressive and precious scale. These pieces interplay with the complete absorption of light and its binary, turning simplicity into intricate melody.

Painting, drawing, and sculpture are exhibited in this display, and show an interplay between media and form. These artists not only translate the evanescent, but also experiment with their chosen practices. For example, Laura Sallade’s work includes painting on steel, Don Miller explores the connections between fine art and the craft of wood, while Natalie Alper uses metallic pigments that refract light into subtle color that shines through her black and white energy fields.
