Touchstone Gallery Openings


Opening Reception: June 12, 6 - 8:30 pm
Main Gallery
June 10 - July 4, 2009

Artists: Janathel Shaw (sculptor), Michael Platt (printmaker), Donna Coleman (painter) and Malia Kai (painter).

The works in this show explore the images and themes evoked by both the intimate and the broader society. Isolation, imprisonment, genocide, shoring up the family, saving our young, and community pride are some of the provocative themes explored. These artists share a desire to communicate their perception of the human condition. Some are bolder in approach than others.


Dorri Thyden and Derede McAlpin come together to present “Inspire” & “Influence” – an exhibition full of color and cultural influences.

Dorri’s art is influenced by the bright colors, and the larger than life landscapes of the southwest and Mexico . Her optimistic outlook comes through in every painting and is meant to convey vivid images that inspire.

Derede’s art depicts the richness and fullness of the African American experience. The recurring theme of her work - individuals and themes that have shaped or enriched the lives of others.
