Artists Lisa Stinson and Tim Turner combine strengths in this two-person show. Stinson is exhibiting selections from several bodies of work, including illustrative pieces from her “Time Marking,” “Arabesque,” and “Textere” series. Hung as wall pieces, these works complement a collection of Turner’s functional pottery. Both artists prefer unassuming forms on which to work surface inflections and layer painterly glazes. Both often choose treatments that convey a sense of inner luminosity emerging through strata. A multi-part installation from the “Textere Series” – collaborative work by Stinson and her husband, glass artist Ken Carder (above) – seems almost a three-dimensional extraction of the intuitive, gestural linear decorations found throughout the show.
