This solo exhibition features new oil on canvas paintings by Mike Hoyt. Born in 1944, Hoyt is an icon of NC impressionists.
Hoyt refers to himself as a Southern Impressionist. Like the French Impressionists, Hoyt prefers to paint everyday subjects and capture their luminosity. Simple objects, warmth and color are the essence of Hoyt's work.
Hoyt explains: 'Since almost all of my work is done in plein-air, light, shadow and mood are essential subjects in my paintings.'
Mike Hoyt's works range from still life and figurative paintings to luminous landscapes. Hoyt seeks to portray the temporal effects of light and color, applied in an impressionistic style. Hoyt goes on to say: '...in the end, I end up in an almost-constant chase for bold, bright and exciting color. I strive for a certain luminosity in my paintings and so I like to work in the early morning and late in the day when the warmest and most vibrant colors dance through a scene.'
Where conventional eyes see the ordinary, Hoyt's ability to portray what can only be described as joyous color shows us the beauty in the ordinary that we might otherwise take for granted.

Vicki Grants solo exhibition includes evocative new sculptural wall pieces and vessels. Her forms begin with high fired porcelain and utilize glass, metal, fossils, and numerous exotic natural objects.
Grant manipulates form, texture, and color to create her intricate sculptures.
Her unusual and complex process makes each sculptural piece unique in form, detail and color. The compositional design and intricate fastening of the pieces imbue her organic sculptural work with intricate details that draw the viewer closer.
Grant says 'I explore the complex process of manipulating form, texture, materials, and color to create an emotional response from those interacting with the piece. Connecting to the viewer is the ultimate goal of my work.'
The work in this exhibition is at once both spiritual and totemic... the sculptures appear to radiate an almost magical essence.
