“Sense and Sensibility: Poetry in Painting” is a group exhibition featuring artists Bradley Biancardi, Ellen Greene, Tyrue “Slang” Jones, Nina Rizzo, William Staples, Ann Toebbe, Pedro Veléz, and Gabriel Villa, eight artists whose work expresses the notion that painting is simply drawing, color, and design that enlivens the mind, spirit, and soul and illuminates life’s majestic and mournful beauty. The exhibition encourages more thought and consideration of painting as a unique visual language to touch on life’s unexplainable and layered meanings.

Exhibit curator Tom Torluemke said, “The one-of-a-kind personality of an artist paints the feelings of a life lived and living. It’s as though the artist’s eyeballs are orbital mirrors reflecting what is outside and inside simultaneously. It is there, so those feelings don’t disappear but survive as proof, a painting filled with haunting power and unexplainably magnetic.”
