Paintings by Emin Mete Erdoğan
Complex illustrations combining painting with technical drawing in which the artist takes the viewer to a space without any hint of time in order to let them discover an infinite texture and to question their own perception.
1700 Miles: Photos by Nick Frank
A different take on Iceland that deviates from the usual landscape photographs. The focus is on driving on a lonely road where you get a sense of the spectacular scenery along with the changing atmosphere and culminating at a final destination, the Kopavogur Church just south of Reykjavík.

Obituaries: Paintings by Hugh Mendes
Paintings of newspaper clippings of popular figures who have died using the obituary section of The Guardian, a British daily, as the source material. The images are chosen for their iconic qualities and the paintings serve as an act of remembrance. The ephemeral qualities of newsprint, which wilts and yellows over time, is negated and is replaced by an enduring work of art.

Love the Skin You're In: Drawings by Oliver Jones
Photorealistic drawings rendered in colored chalk pastel that questions the limitations in the pursuit of perfection and how people are influenced by how the media advertises, manipulates, and exploits the imagery of flesh.
Today’s science, coupled with commerce that appeals to society’s vain traits, means that humanity no longer has to leave everything down to nature. We feel that we also need to be part of the design.On view at Gusford Sept. 12 – Oct. 25.
Apex: Paintings by Dave White
Gestural paintings of sharks using expressive brushstrokes and drips to add movement and dynamism to the works. Apex refers to the position the Great White Shark occupies at the top of the oceanic food chain.
Obviously great whites have a nasty reputation. But in actual fact they’re fragile and beautiful. I want people to look at how rare they are — that’s the crux of it all.
