We'll be sure to get your bells jingling, your dreidel's spinning, and your holiday season started off right! and ‘COURSE CORRECTIONS’ by GALE WALLAR Gale Wallar's paintings and drawings in the exhibit 'Course Corrections' explore places and scenes we might not know. The images are chosen for their visual impact and invite close observation. The work is representational but, because of eliminations, simplifications, color adjustments and other visual choices, cannot be classified as pure realism. In terms of composition, one finds a pattern of structure and hidden geometry. The picture plane is broken up with color and value changes which enhances the effect of push and pull. Positive shapes break into negative space in a dynamic manner. The images are not renderings of places, but a visual conveyance into another plane that might not have been predicted.
