Opening October 20, 2012: New work by Hilary Aurand & Mark Yasenchack 

Paintings by Hilary Aurand and Mosaics by Mark Yasenchack

This is the debut of Aurand's urban landscape paintings at River Gallery.  These bold, sometimes surreal , sometimes gritty, landscapes capture our city's industrial beauty and the desolate nature of its forgotten urban wastelands.  Aurand's details are innately familiar; from the industrial cast-offs and machinery to the quality of light that feels like our bright northern Ohio summers or the long shadowed midwestern winters.  She renders these details with intimate brushstrokes and sophisticated composition that reveal a grace to the many landscapes of our city.

While Mark Yasenchack has exhibited his ceramic work at River Gallery before this is his first time exhibiting large format mosaics.  This work features found stone, glass and metal fragments and bits that end up as mosaic tesserae.  These are combined with tiles made with his textured clay technique.  The often gothic imagery in his work hints at ancient necropoli, tribal ritual sites, and obscured religious iconography found in ruined architecture.
