Over his artistic career, Professor Emeritus of Residential College, College of Literature, Science, and the Arts and Professor Emeritus of Art, Penny W Stamps School of Art and Design Larry Cressman’s work has evolved away from the two-dimensional as he has explored drawing as a three-dimensional form of expression, one that in many ways has focused on landscape.

NCRC Connections Gallery, Building 18

New exhibition presented by NCRC Art from January 13 through April 29, 2016 at North Campus Research Complex (NCRC) in the Connections Gallery, Building 18.

Opening reception, in tandem with Land Lines: Larry Cressman exhibition, on January 13 from 5pm to 7pm in the Entrance Lobby of Building 18, NCRC. Open to the public.

Detroit-based artist Janet Hamrick paints in harmonious color fields of refined and subtle shifts of light and dark accented by patterns derived from calligraphy and flowers. A natural repetitive structure and pattern of decorative elements form a rhythmic composition. These works have a language or musical feel of their own, whether it is symphonic, jazz or even silence which can be nature. The pattern may dominate in some compositions where the negative space may be emphasized in others.

Hamrick works out of her studio in Ferndale, Michigan. She studied at the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit and at the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, FL. She shows her work at the George Billis Gallery in New York and at the Lemberg Gallery in Ferndale, Michigan and has been exhibited throughout Greater Detroit and beyond, including the Detroit Institute of Arts (2015), the Venice Art Biennale in Italy (2014), the Windsor Biennial at the Art Gallery of Windsor in Windsor, Ontario (2007).
