Defined, contiguous means ‘sharing a common border, touching,’ ‘next or together in sequence,’ this accurately describes the work of the three artists in this show. Rich Roberts uses fused glass. Katie Duffy McGeehin’s makes figures in plaster & watercolor and Donna O’Grady’s paints on tin. McGeehin’s work delves into the effect of art interacting with the environment. Her plaster figures and beautiful watercolors explore and convey human interaction. Her pieces show images that are entwined, attached and holding each other in emotional configurations. O’Grady’s works hint of nostalgia and are executed on pressed tin. Her subject matter is familiar surroundings that are touching in an old world manner. She works in the old masters’ technique of under painting/over painting. Robert’s work uses the medium of fused glass. Fused glass is the heat bonding of several pieces of glass in a kiln. His work is a very personal. It recalls his interaction with family, friends and life events. Sometimes humorous, sometimes deep his imagery never fails to trigger unexpected reactions in his viewers.
