New Members Show

April 4 – 27, 2024

Gallery 110 presents a New Members Show featuring artists Carol Adelman, Sarah Barnett, H.R. Emi and Nena Howell. All four oil painters have joined Gallery 110 within the last eight months and have continued to refine their craft, exploring themes from the human body and mortality to artworks that represent deep respect for cultural roots and liminal every day moments. Each artist presents up to three pieces for the first time as members of Gallery 110 this April.

Carol Adelman is a painter who uses a sensual, aggressive approach to materials that borders on abstraction. Through her vigorous approach, she arrives at a surface that is both image and sculptural relief. Her work pushes traditional forms to embody contemporary ideas of constructed identity and a fragmented self. The lifelong bedrock of her studio practice is the live study of the human form.

Sarah Barnett is a painter from North Texas, presently residing in Washington State. A devoted oil painter with a background in figure drawing, Sarah’s paintings are highly representational and heavily distorted, with themes revolving around mortality, self-preservation, the human body, and technology. Recently, she has contributed to several mural projects in her community and hopes to help make the arts more publicly accessible.

H.R. Emi specializes in painting and drawing and creates art with the intention of capturing a disruption of emotion through everyday moments. Her work blends realism, iconography, and language to create her artistic vision, often representing snapshots of familiar liminal spaces that tell a portion of an interactive narrative; this artistic narrative is also influenced by the duality of her Mexican and American background. Through art, Emi has learned how to visualize the way she navigates the world, how she records her time here, and how she reflects on her own particular lens of life.

Nena Howell, an emerging artist working in Eastern Washington, creates contemporary figurative oil paintings that combine her Tlingit Indian and Ukrainian roots. She brings movement to every canvas and is guided by a reverence for her Tlingit formline and ancestral rhythms that enliven her brushes and oils with a sense of abundance, wellness and stewardship.

The New Members Show will be on display at Gallery 110 from April 4 – 27, 2024. Gallery hours are Thursday – Saturday from 12pm – 5pm and by appointment. Please join us for the First Thursday Art Walk on April 4, 2024 from 12-8pm.
