has been creating artwork, both in painting and sculpture, for more than thirty years and has focused her attention on what it is to be human. Her sculptures and drawings reference the human form with words coursing through them. Suspended and seated wire sculptures keep evolving with time, the words secret messages, obsessive thoughts, desires, an authentic voice within.

Part 2 focuses on the "other side of the crises" - how individuals and our nation as a whole respond and cope from such a crises, with views on war, healing, humor, and politics.
Anger, Shock, Fear, Loss, Pain, Disbelief, and Suspicion and themes of quieter, reflective explorations also emerge. These embrace reaffirmation of community and identity, healing, spirituality, resolve, and determination. The artists make these feelings, both positive and negative, tangible. They contextualized in paint, photography, brass, and video what needs to be studied, observed, and understood.

STEAMpunk! Jan. 16 - Feb. 28, 2011
Steampunk is part science fiction, alternate history and speculative fiction. It features science fiction or fantasy, anachronistic technology or futuristic innovations as Victorians may have envisioned them; it is a Victorian perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, and art. Many contemporary objects – like computers, toys, utilitarian objects – are being re-invented by artists in a Steampunk style. This movement was given credence in last year’s exhibit at the Museum of the History of Science, in Oxford, UK. Several artists from that exhibit will be showing at the Freyberger Gallery. Come see for yourself – a Steampunk Victorian wheelchair, a mechanical arm, robots, ray guns and more. Artists include: Lord Archibald ‘Feathers’ Featherstone, (Thomas Willeford of Brute Force Studio) Harrisburg, PA; Steve Wetzel (Wezco Art Company Studio) Supply, North Carolina; Victor Holecek, (Outre Visual Art, Schamballah Studio) Kansas City, MO; Sarah Cavillo, Brooklyn, N.Y.; Eric Freitas, Royal Oak, Michigan; Allan Brintzenhoff, Fleetwood, PA and others!
