FLAC News:

Two new shows open at the Fuller Lodge Art Center with a reception 5-7 p.m. Friday. In the main gallery, FLAC displays its latest themed show, “Eureka!”.

In the Portal Gallery is “Eclecticity,” work by Katherine Brittin and Charryl Greenwood Berger. Guest artist David Blecha i is sharing a large number of works presented in trios as well.

Holy cow! Man alive! Aha! In “Eureka!” artists tried to reach beyond their artistic comfort zone to try new media or new subjects. Some found sudden inspiration and rode it to a finished piece. Some attacked the mundane to break out a hidden treasure. Thanks to Gordon McDonough and Liz Martineau, there will be several different brain-teasing puzzles scattered throughout the exhibit. Solve the puzzles to have a eureka moment!

The collaborative effort between Katherine Brittin and Charryl Greenwood Berger expresses the joy of discovery through an eclectic variety of artistic media in their Portal Gallery show "Eclecticity"They share their journey of discovery through photographs taken in travels throughout the U.S. and Europe, clocks made from obsolete electronics parts, pieces of original enamel art and one-of-a-kind alternative photographs. Together these object mystiques combine to create the energetic eclectic nature of the show.

David Blecha is a working painter who concurrently facilitates a painting studio at Off Center Arts in Albuquerque. During the “Eureka!” exhibit he is sharing a large number of exciting "drawings" presented in trios. The 5"x20" pieces are hung in vertical arrays. 

Many of the works on display are part of the "Ahmad" series, which were all inspired by the jazz music of Ahmad Jamal. Blecha finds that both Jamal's originals and his arrangements of other musicians, especially older swing tunes, allow him to "break through" in his work.
