I did an open studio tour on Friday night at Prism Workspaces. While I saw great art all evening, my favorites were by Madeleine Dodge. Madeleine’s Art is always fresh and inventive.

It was a quiet night on the local art scene. Only two galleries had openings. The hit of the night was Sue Simon’s presentation of new works at Spark Gallery. Sue’s paintings combine abstraction with science and mathematics. Her new works concentrate on numbers. Her paintings are delightful and well crafted. This exhibition did not disappoint. Here are a few of my favorites:

Pi is an Infinitely Long Series of Numbers, acrylic on panel
Zero, acrylic on panel
Some Numbers Keep You Calm, acrylic on panel
Uncountable Infinity, acrylic on panel (just one panel of a six panel painting)

Geraldine, oil on canvas, 16 x 20.
Tempest in a Teacup, oil on canvas, 24 x 24.
The table, oil on canvas, 13 x 22.
