Some people like to put a foot in the water before they jump in. Structural Dreams exhibits art that begins with geometry as a framework and then allows creative free-associations to flourish. The viewer is invited to find balance between chaos and control while enjoying the variety of approaches to this eternal theme. For example, an artist may start with a drawn grid on the paper and then allow color choices to be more reactive, creating wonderfully complex compositions.

Is the glass half empty or half full? Embracing Now balances positive and negative realities of modern life. For example, artwork that embraces modern technology is to be displayed next to satirical political critiques. These contrasting ideas are meant to help the viewer find their own ideas to embrace in a society of contradictions.
