River draws moonshells, a series of 18 with each shell showing more decay in a contemplation of the degradation of time-- a sort of mandala. Roesler’s series, in glass and entitled Blue Wave, features 30 blue sculpture pieces, each plump at the base and getting smaller and more bowed at the top. Each sits atop a light box but as a series look like a living wave. Gillespie’s work employs painted felt inserted into channels made in wood panels. Anemone, one of the pieces has a turquoise center, braided with felt rising off like barnacles. Her work is the most abstract of the show.
