Caitlyn Kenney acrylic paintings of a dining room, a kitchen, and a den express character and space. She states, “I am interested in the way that objects can be both familiar and foreign, specific and generic, and the way that color, specifically in light and shadow, become abstracted areas of the painting.”

Danielle J. Mužina combines elements from her childhood home in Cleveland with her family’s centuries-old home in Krk, Croatia in her multi media work, Untouchable. Danielle explains, “Like everyone, I carry resonant fragments of my history with me and repurpose them to build new home spaces, better suited to who I may become. The painting-space allows for a free interplay of multiple places and times, just as mental space allows past and present to both mingle and conflict in the rooms we spend our lives in. As my understanding of home continues to shift, my paintings seek to establish a sense of place, even if it is an ephemeral one.”

The indoor/outdoor space of the Arlington Hotel porch is the subject of Gary Simmons’ watercolor, Arlington Arches. Where Don Watson chose to focus on the chair that his figure contemplates in his oil painting, Pandora.
