David Baggarly, Alma Cummings and Nancy Hayes

When we look closely at our world we observe the intricate, innate patterns woven into every aspect of our universe, from the pattern on a Zebra’s hide to the helix shape of our DNA. Like a big net holding us together, these patterns unite us, and like the complex physiology that forms us, they create the foundation of life.

For many these patterns have meaning beyond the physical; they create a bridge between the tangible and the spiritual. They transcend time, cultural differences, and geography. They form a spiritual backbone.

The three artists in the show, Abstraction: Pattern, Gesture, Spirit, create images inspired by the world’s physical, natural beauty as well as their spiritual desire to be part of something bigger than themselves. Not confined by what they see with their eyes, their art explores spaces that exist beyond our physical reality. Within these created spaces they hope to connect with what binds our lives together, what makes us one.
