Got Your Back – Healing Through Art

Back Prints by Stephanie Koscelnik
May 6, 2017 7:30pm – 11:30pm.

A collaborative art collection grown from a healing experiment and a coming together of friends after a great loss.

After two major knee surgeries I found a new way of self expression through painting. When I first created a “back print” I felt like I found a hidden beauty. A story of self. After a close friend passed away from cancer this project turned into something much more meaningful. “got your back” is a healing journey that involves 21 back prints of myself and friends that surrounded me during this time. -Stephanie

Join us Saturday May 6th 7:30 – 11:30 for a very personal exhibition of Stephanie’s work. You will be able to experience her unique “Back Prints” in person. The prints will be paired with the musical styling Gina Belliveau and light refreshments.

Blue Collar / Meet The Artist / Dec 17th

This Thursday Fulcrum Gallery will be open 6-9 pm for arts walk. We are hosting the continuing exhibition of Blue Collar by Adrian Bouchard. Additionally Adrian will be here giving an informal presentation about his artwork and the artistic processes that lead up to this body of work now on display till January 15th

Adrian Bouchard was born in San Luis Obispo, CA, in 1986. He has been drawing since he was two, and has never stopped creating. Adrian specializes in portraiture using acrylic paints, but also loves ballpoint pen. Over the last four years Adrian has partially transitioned from canvas works in favor of painting on vinyl records and metal plates.

Influenced by many different artists and cultures, Adrian draws inspiration from every period of history, with an emphasis on Art Nouveau and Modern Realism. He loves innovation, learning new ways of creating, and is constantly experimenting with his style. Along with mixing media, Adrian typically uses multiple techniques from different eras, so as to not limit himself when it comes to painting.

New Work by Scott Nelson

It’s a photographers’ job to capture a moment, but how exactly does one “capture” a moment? The act of plucking emotion from within the context of reality and distilling it into an artifact seems an impossible task, yet Scott accomplishes this and more in his new body of work titled “Here Now Forever”. These artworks are trophies distilled from explorations outside of the bonds of time. Some stretched like exotic animal skins; others composed to form their own visual language. Scott’s pieces offer us an omniscient view of existence, unfettered by the limiting perceptions of our physical being.

“I’m fascinated by time and humankind’s relative understanding of it. As an artist I like to step out of that seemingly one-way stream and to explore my own relationship with things considered temporary and permanent.” –Scott Nelson
