COMPLEX IDENTITY featured paintings and
sculpture by Grand Rapids Artist Michael Pfleghaar. Pfleghaar’s
expressive and exaggerated style interprets inanimate objects into
conscious entities by giving them human characteristics in their
movement, shape, and posture. Pfleghaar creates dynamic “visual
conversations” among the elements in his work which give the
compositions a human essence and worldly energy. His sculpture takes on
the same personality as his two-dimensional work through his continued
use of color, curves and exaggeration. For more information about

Remnants: Symbol and Form featured
paintings and drawings by West Michigan Artist Art Martin. Martin’s
work balances familiar and overlooked objects between highly rendered
illusion and flat two-dimensional patterns and forms. The resulting
pieces explore the abstract form and symbolic content of the objects,
translating them into moments of contemplation, disquiet and transition.

paintings and drawings by the late Sari Khoury, former Central Michigan
University Professor of Art, and Department Chair. Sari Khoury’s work

and color. For more information on Sari Khoury and his work please
