EBB AND FLOW | RUTH BORUM-LOVELAND AND DEBBIE BARRET-JONES
OPENING FIRST FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 4 2015 | 5:00PM-9:00PM
“Ebb & Flow” featuring Debbie Barrett-Jones and Ruth Borum-Loveland will be on view September 4, 2015 through the end of October 2015. The opening will be held from 5:00pm-9:00pm, First Friday September 4, 2015.
Through pattern and color the two female artists use their meditative art processes in order to navigate the chaos of life. Debbie Barrett-Jones’ woven textiles illustrate that narrative through her gradation of color, pattern, and composition to create an orderly arrangement and sense of harmony. Barrett-Jones’ process begins long before she sits down at her loom; she draws out plans, drafts patterns, and hand dyes yarn. Her intricate arrangements generate rhythmic order in the overall composition, while the tension between control and chance flows through each thread.
Like Barrett-Jones, mixed media artist, Ruth Borum-Loveland finds her process to be a tool of navigation and describes it to be “a series of small discoveries”. Borum-Loveland creates work inspired by the outdoors and her personal relationships, specifically her son. Her methods range from pen drawings, photocopied manipulations, wood-burnings, and acrylic paint application. Through the manipulation of her original drawings, she creates movement in the forms, allowing each piece to be influenced by the touch of her hand. The final product is often a mysterious and dreamlike form covered with elaborate, seemingly microscopic detail.
Although Debbie Barrett-Jones and Ruth Borum-Loveland work in separate mediums, both emphasize their process and embrace the rhythmic nature of their detailed compositions. Join us for the premiere Fall show, “Ebb & Flow”!

“A true affinity of a homeowner can be identified on first glance. Such is the case of the Shermans’ vast and varied art collection, a masterful mine containing the entire spectrum-still life to abstract. Hunt Slonem’s black and white Abe Lincoln painting almost shares a secret with the room.”

One of America’s greatest presidents and revolutionaries has become sexy in 2012. From vampire hunter to Steven Spielberg muse, the great Abe’s more famous than ever. But you won’t just find America’s 16th president on the silver screen. Weinberger Fine Art has an exquisite selection of Lincoln portraits painted by Hunt Slonem. Jewels on the gallery walls, each Lincoln has a unique spirit, vivaciousness and distinct artistic techniques. Hunt Slonem mined the image of Lincoln during commemorations of his bicentennial in 2009, taking into account a wide range of historical information from public records and private knowledge gleaned from personal encounters with the president’s spirit through channelers. Slonem’s Lincolns are multilayered, even contradictory, which seems in alignment with the 21st century’s openness towards pan-cultural, pan-global alternatives to public truth fueled by subjective belief systems and private social practices. You can peruse more Lincoln portraits on our Hunt Slonem paintings page.
About Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” film: It’s a historical American drama with Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln and Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln. The film is based in part on Doris Kearns Goodwin’s biography of Lincoln, Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, and covers the final four months of Lincoln’s life, focusing on Lincoln’s success in January 1865 to have the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution pass the House of Representatives. You can watch the trailer here.
