A statement by Rebecca Hoadley:

“I create paintings based on memories, focusing on certain areas to detail, while leaving other spaces undefined and nondescript. As I begin layering the carefully mixed color, I feel the continual need to paint over my progress. This process of painting and repainting continues until I can find colors beyond an imitation, and give new shapes to what I see.”

There will be artist appearances at the Stein Gallery January through April. Each Saturday, artists form the exhibition will be in the Gallery from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.  Others will make appearances throughout the day on Weaver Free Saturdays (the first of each month), and on Tuesday evenings during the exhibition.
