The Art Oasis

 

continued

Karen Zaher's digital-print close-ups of an elephant-ear plant don't impress. Both the blue-black and the silvery version of the image, whose colors result from software-aided tweakage, have little to say aside from "elephant-ear plant." The exhibit's sole example of style over substance is Marie Wohadlo's array of tiny, stamp-size digital prints framed in relatively large black mats, some embellished with stitching. The little pictures of house interiors, landscape fragments, and cat and human faces are mildly decorative but fail to hold one's attention or imagination.

Bold ink paintings, unusual "sugar-relief" intaglio prints, and drawings round out the exhibit, which runs through January 12.    (end of article)
