"Identity : People"

Check out Identity : People, a National Juried Art Exhibition at the Valley Art Center in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. This group exhibition is juried by visual artist, Judith B. Carducci, and includes two of my recent paintings.

Identity : People will run from January 26 - March 7, 2018 with an Opening Reception on Friday, January 26 from 6-8 pm. Hope to see you there!

In 2018, Valley Art Center begins a three-year series of exhibits exploring concepts of identity through three different themes: People, Places and Things. Our first exhibit focuses on “PEOPLE.” Artists were invited to submit work exploring the concept of Identity in their own terms and through any media and style as it pertains to people as individuals, or as a group. 


Come see "Gaze," an exhibition featuring the works of Wesley Anderegg, Jessica Beebe, Christopher Fraser, Clarissa Gerber, Luanne Keen, Alex Lopez, Peter Mack, Michelle Arnold Paine, and Joseph Vitone.

"Gaze" is a show of figurative art by in a range of media by nine male and female artists, curated by Leslie Tane. Comparing works by gender, it asks the question: What is the effect of the artist's gaze?

The exhibition is taking place at ArtSpace in Maynard Massachusetts from April 6 to April 29. The opening reception is Saturday, April 9th from 5 - 7 pm.

"Figurative Color"

My solo exhibition, Figurative Color, will be on exhibit in the Pegasus Gallery and the Niche at Middlesex Community College, Middletown, CT, from Monday, Jan. 26 through Friday, March 6, 2015. There will be a reception for the artist in the Pegasus Gallery Thursday, Jan. 29 from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.

Portrait paintings by Clarissa R Gerber address the complex underpinnings of identity, emotional presence, and of human psychology. Dynamic color relationships and closely cropped compositions contain and defy the descriptive physicality of individual subjects. Broad brushstrokes, stark color contrasts and spatially deviant background settings offer readings of emotive states of mind and brewing interior narratives.

Gerber’s paintings speak to universal aspects of the human condition and reveal auras carried by both subject and setting. These portraits also materialize the visceral gaze exchanged between model and artist, artist and image, and lastly, between the viewer and resulting painting.

The Pegasus Gallery is within the Middlesex Community College library on the first floor of Chapman Hall. It is open Mondays - Thursdays from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m., Fridays from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. when classes are in session. The Niche is in Founders Hall across from the registrar’s office and is open Mondays - Thursdays from 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. and Fridays from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. The college is at 100 Training Hill Road.
