Simon Dvorak Solo Exhibition: Nodes
Exhibition Dates: December 1-December 30, 2016
Artist Reception December 11, 2016 1-4:00pm
Gallery 1855 is pleased to announce the solo exhibition by multi-media artist Simon Dvorak. His solo exhibition “Nodes” will be exhibited throughout the month of December. A special end of the year opening reception will be held on Sunday, December 11th 1-4:00pm.
Simon Dvorak has shown his work in multiple mediums throughout the United States. His latest work is an exploration of networks. Nodes, connected and disconnected, forming a greater whole, exist as independent and yet dependent objects. Connected and energy can be transferred. Disconnected and the node exists independently. Electrical circuits, computer networks, your ‘Related Items’ have all manifested as a result of this paradigm.
“Through the vibrant medium of oil paint I have tried to visualize these concepts in diverse formats and styles. In a time of social networks aided by technology, examining the power and beauty of networks becomes imperative so that we may better understand their nature and potential impact of their forms.”
This will be a must see exhibition.
Dee Conway “The Continuum” Exhibition
Exhibition Dates June 1, 2016-June 30, 2016
Artist Reception: June 12th 1-4:00pm
Gallery 1855 offers a special exhibition from artist Dee Conway. A graduate of Brooks Institute of Photography. This special exhibition draws from her many influences of nature, art, and the work of her late mentor Johanna Gillman.
“Many of the photographs in this exhibit are a combination of Johanna Gillman’s artwork with either my paintings, my photography, or still lifes that I have created with her imagery. In some cases I have changed the color/tone/position of her work to create something new.
Johanna was a fabulous New York artist who spent the last 3 years of her life in California. She now lives in this beautiful cemetery.
In this way, I can somewhat continue our art relationship. I was her last art mentee” Dee Conway

Anne Miller “Botanicals” Exhbition
Gallery 1855 is pleased to present the abstract photography of artist Anne Miller. Anne’s vibrant, colorful rare prints will be exhibited throughout the month of April with a special artist reception April 10th from 1-4:00pm. Light refreshments will be served during the event. Anne has a unique ability to use her camera lens to abstract subjects from their familiar settings and to emphasize the shapes, textures, patterns and colors that interest her. By exploring only a portion or detail of an object taken out of its larger context, she can see it from a fresh perspective without preconceptions about a subject’s nature and the resulting image.
Her latest series of limited edition prints “Botanicals” captures the wealth of interesting surfaces and colors of nature. Anne’s work reflects the life and fascinating patterns the world. In “Botanicals” she combines the elements of water, reflective distortion, transparency and selective focus to bring out new mysterious interpretations. She brilliantly captures the earthy color palettes and vibrant hues only found in nature. Limited edition prints will be for sale by the artist.

Gallery 1855 is available for viewing Monday through Friday 9-3:00pm with opening reception held second Sunday 1-4:00pm.
