Cowgirl Blues- an exhibition of prints by Marjorie Gaber: Creal Microgallery.

  community member   < less Cowgirl Blues print

Creal Microgallery is pleased to present "Cowgirl Blues," an exhibition of risograph prints by Michigan-based illustrator and comic artist Marjorie Gaber. The works in this exhibition feature a character pulled from the Mythological American West- a contemplative pioneer, a rugged independent, and a fixture in Gaber's psyche-- the cowgirl.
According to Gaber, "Cowgirls have this strange magical air to them; like cowboys they have this association with rugged individualism and a kind of charismatic folksiness to them, but there's something special about the cowgirl. Something untouchable and aspirational, but vulnerable too." These prints, based on Gaber's comic illustrations, explore a range of ideas on the cowgirl identity in ways that are both playful and philosophical-- who is this mythological character and how does she succeed or fail at, well... at being?

Stephanie Sarris Exhibition "Rhythmic Patterns": U of M North Campus Research Complex Galleries.

  community member   < less Leaf Berry Dance, 2021 (acyrlic on canvas)

Sarris' paintings are acrylic and mixed media on paper and canvas. The theme of her work is genre based environments/objects that she has experienced. The spaces and objects reflect images that have affected her emotionally. They constantly incorporate the balance of structure vs. gesture. The selection of the grid structure is used as a digest to view ideas drawn from a spectrum of personal/cultural sources. The compositions reflect interior spaces that contain various objects and/or spatial viewpoints. The placement of images, colors and brushstrokes connection to rhythm/movement is essential. The element of rhythm is passionate and spiritual through every mark and stroke. Intense hues of color are used to create an all over pattern that is both gesture and calligraphic. The touch is expressive through its vigorous application.
