The three artists featured in the Windsor Art Center’s upcoming exhibition, 3 Roads Diverge, take familiar images such as landscapes and use them to express the beautiful moments of life – from giving thanks, to exploring the craft of making art, to sharing a personal view of a sunset.

Artist Diana Lyn Cote shares work from a series of 366 paintings inspired by asking everyday for one leap year, “What makes you grateful?” Painter Catherine Doocy invents landscapes from memory, using the elements of the landscape for explorations of composition, line, and color. Teri Oja combines her training in drawing and painting with her needlework to create “Thread Paintings”, capturing the visual impressions that a scene makes, without trying to reproduce it exactly.   Come see how these three artists create beautiful images of the world by following these three distinct paths.

Essential Impermanence

January 17-February 28, 2015

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 17, 5-7PM

Michele Kishita Artist Talk: Saturday, February 7, 1-2PM

Debra Losada Artist Talk: Saturday, February 14, 1-2PM CANCELLED due to snow

At what point is the transient nature of creation truly experienced? The recent work of artists Debra Losada and Michele Kishita featured in this exhibit generates a vibrant dialogue, which explores this very question. Losada’s oil on panel works explore the transformation of space at the moment that formlessness moves into form. Kishita’s mixed media work focuses on the intersection of seemingly disparate elements at the moment they unite. Come see for yourself how each artist responds to the fluid significance inherent in these particular instances of profound mutability.

Among the site specific works created by each artist for this exhibit is Pine River, an installation by Michele Kishita composed of 8,000 paint stir sticks.  Each stick has been meticulously hand dipped and wrapped in Japanese, Indian, and Italian paper.  At its completion, it will have taken 8 months with two studio assistants, one to dip and one to wrap and nearly 40 bottles of glue and 15 quarts of paint.  It will also include wooden dowels of various lengths that will be painted and wrapped.  These dowels will represent the waterfall that ultimately creates Pine River.  Aesthetically, Kishita finds herself attracted to the raw, utilitarian appearance of the stir sticks and their juxtaposition to the delicate gilded papers, especially since both are made of wood.
