Curator’s notes –

          The three exceptional artists in this exhibition explore emotionality and movement through dramatic color. The intense and energetic acrylic paints of Aziza Gibson-Hunter’s paper cutouts jump from the walls and invite us to break into a dance, in step with their rhythmic jazz-inspired patterns. Alec Simpson’s intimate abstract prints are sublime and lead us into thoughtful paths. The intricate fabric wall sculptures of Eileen Williams are playful and tease and tickle our senses.

          Collectively, they inspire. They exalt. They make us think. They cause us to smile and dance. They allow us to feel. They teach us how to live.
