Monique Crine/Jason Lee Gimbel

Submitted by Teresa Klassen on Tue, 02/04/2014 - 5:14am

In this exhibition, two artists take a very different look at the human form. When you first see Monique Crine's portraits, they might appear to be photographs. It's more likely, however, to be an extremely detailed oil-on-canvas painting based on a photograph. Her subjects include John F. Kennedy, Susan Sontag, family photos, and posed models evoking 1940s Hollywood cinematography. Jason Lee Gimbel's drawings and paintings focus on the human form with a variety of styles including figurative and abstract. Fri 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sat-Sun noon-5 p.m.
