November 7, 2009 – January 9, 2010
Opening Reception with the Artists: November 7, 6-9 PM

DALLAS, Texas (October 15, 2009)—Haley-Henman announces the exhibition of works by Susan Lecky, Cecilia Thurman, Keith Livingston and Nick Troilo. The exhibition opens with a reception for the artists on Saturday, November 7, 2009 from 6 – 9 pm. The exhibition will continue until January 9, 2010. The artists in this venue bring an interesting perspective of our visual world in the way they use the line to create space and boundaries, change our perceptions of form and movement, and divide our vision into particles of the whole. This exhibition presents four outstanding artists who stand independently.

Susan Lecky is intrigued with the random and fixed patterning found in nature and its interaction with human architectonic forms. She boldly presents these works as six panel formats that heightens geometrical perceptions. This comprehensive showing of Susan Lecky’s work on canvas will also include her color pencil works on paper. Cecilia Thurman is noted for her meditative and serene prints on paper. For this exhibition, she combines printed collagraph and mixed media works to form collages that coalesce into exciting new pieces of art. Her use of the line functions as the border between one work and another that now is new. Cecilia Thurman’s juxtapositions of color and space demonstrate her adept understanding of visual relationships. Viewing Keith Livingston’s sculptures is like taking the stratigraphic layers of earth’s eons and making them come alive. He stacks layers of wood upon layers of wood and then allows line and form to emerge and dance. As the only sculptor in the show, his work invites touch, amusement and unique connections. Nick Troilo’s geometric lines and spaces on canvas leap into futuristic worlds. In this geometric collection, he presents two versions, which mark the interplay of feminine and masculine expressions: one series in solid, the other in variegated colors. Indeed, it is his play of color on colors that is core of his work. His painted works are dimensional constructions evoking our ever-changing surroundings.
Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday, noon to five in the evening, and by appointment.
