June Glasson / Preston Trombly / Evan Venegas – April 2013
April 6 – May 5 2013
I was inspired by the birth of my daughter. I used watercolors, which is a delicate medium, a basic shape, and subtle use of color to show fragility. I wanted to show a complete body, while at the time, showing the individual parts that create it.
My process was initiated by my own daily organizing and setting values to life tasks, events, situations and other “emotional data.” I then translate these values into different colors and sizes of circles. The arrangement of these individual shapes, which build a unified piece, represent the process of balancing elements in my life. evanvenegas.com
I’m an artist and designer. I live in Laramie, WY. My paintings have been exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in London, Nature Morte Gallery in Berlin and various New York and Stateside galleries.They have also appeared in The Paris Review, Guernica Magazine, Versal Magazine, and Asymptote Magazine and have been featured in Domino, People, and Myself Magazine as well as the film “My Idiot Brother.” I have also designed and fabricated exhibitions and window displays for The Center for Urban Pedagogy, Bergdorf Goodman, Bumble and Bumble, and Crumpler Bags. http://www.juneglasson.com
is best known to classical music devotees as the host of Sirius/XM Satellite Radio’s nationally broadcast Symphony Hall channel. He was previously on the air in New York over classical music stations WQXR FM and the former WNCN.
He has also been an artist for most of his life. His first artistic successes were as a musician—composer, performer, and conductor. More recently he has been working in the visual arts.
According to Trombly, “For me, the need to make art has been a driving force in my life. Whether it’s working with and organizing sounds over time, or more recently colors, materials and shapes in space; my work is about turning initially vague, fleeting and amorphous ideas into solid, concrete and comprehensible works of art. My experiences composing and creating musical structures inform my work in the visual arts.”
Preston Trombly received his visual arts education at New York’s Art Students League. He received his Master of Musical Arts degree from the Yale University School of Music. He was a Fellow in Composition and Conducting at the Tanglewood-Berkshire Music Center, a Guggenheim Fellow and a resident fellow at the MacDowell Colony, along with receiving grants from The NEA and the NYState Council on the Arts among others. He earned his Bachelor of Music with Honors from the University of Connecticut.
His original music has been played throughout America, and his visual art has been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the greater New York Metropolitan and Tri-State areas. His recent talks and lectures include those at Penn State University, Westfield State University, Southern Utah University, The University of Connecticut, The National Arts Club, the Newark Museum, and The Jasper Rand Museum.
