Illusion

 
All art is illusion created not to deceive but to perceive, to make the viewer see and understand something more.
 

Join us at the opening reception on Sunday, January 26, 2 - 4 pm. Refreshments will be served.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS: 

Skilled photographers Ron Hewson and Susan Arness exhibit as Chesley House and for this show have chosen works that present and create illusion. The illusion in the landscape is that there is something else there. It may be a mystery or a sense of change.  The landscape asks “what else is there?"

Mary Lou Hiller experiments with various media and styles to reveal multiple meanings in a single image. For this show she uses collage, cubism, and surrealism to play with our accepted concepts of perception, space, and time to provide a new “ah-ha” moment.

Shaun McFee explores abstraction and post-impressionism filtered through geometric shapes and forms. For this show, he has chosen three pieces he feels represent the theme of Illusion through what he sees as an altered reality, verging on life-like, while exploring how replacing traditional representations of subject matter with squares may give the viewer a glimpse of an illusion.
