February 2014, APU will feature new oil paintings by  Sarah F Burns and Julian Bell.  The show opens with a party on First Friday, February 7 from 5:00 – 8:00 pm or visit the gallery any Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 – 5:00 pm.

Sarah F Burns will be showing moody floral still lives. Sarah is a versatile representational painter and draftswoman, known for her urban landscapes, vanitas series for Smithfields Restaurant and Bar, and figurative work.  In general Sarah’s work is fairly conventional, yet subtly challenging.  It’s never radical, but never quite settled either. She probes Western Classical traditions to discover tools for expressing the universal; her work aims at the timeless while being firmly planted in the now.

Julian Bell’s work is akin to putting on Warner’s Bros glasses and walking the house or town. Decaying factories and cities and other signs of decline in the world are among his favorite subjects, but he delights in more positive realities of life as well, like flowers and figures.  Pragmatic and truthful while being light hearted and fun, never flinching or shying away from the facts but never being a downer either.

Both artists create work for people who generally look well on the world, yet acknowledge life contains darkness as well as light.  These paintings are all pieces you can live with, enjoy and contemplate for many years.
