Now Showing

Silence Nothingness. There's an elegant little show with the possibly insulting title of Silence Nothingness at the Sandra Phillips Gallery. The exhibit pairs Amy Lee Solomon's abstracted Western landscapes with emerging artist Susan Jean Hart's rough-hewn sculptures, which also pick up the landscape theme. In the '80s and early '90s, Solomon, then a neo-expressionist painter, was well known in town, having exhibited her work in several fondly remembered art hot spots. Though she's shown her paintings continuously since then, she's kept a much lower profile. The new Solomons are covered with scribbles of graphite and smears of paint in a fairly limited palette: cream, blue, black and gray, with little touches of green and orange. Hart's sculptures are very cool and are part of a tradition of wooden sculptures that have been done around here for decades. I especially like "Tree House," a totem made of steel and tree branches, but the others are good, too. The show has been extended to November 7 at the Sandra Phillips Gallery, 744 Santa Fe Drive, 303-573-5969. Reviewed October 21.
