This month Carmen Sasso and Dan Hofstadter return to offer two solo shows suggesting two different approaches to representational art. Dan offers a sampling of thirty years of freehand drawing. These show a variety of subjects, including portraits of friends and family, figure pieces, and a suite of monotypes. The latter, composed from fantasy in a direct technique the artist picked up while teaching primary-school art classes, explore several shadowy themes that have haunted his imagination. Other drawings, executed in willow charcoal, pen-and-ink, and ink wash, create a concrete impression of people known and places lived. Carmen’s show offers mixed-media paintings that explore off-beat stylistic combinations. Some of the pieces juxtapose northern Renaissance perspective and abstract expression ; others pair conscious rendition with unconscious discoveries or the visual translation of sound. Still others quote historical masterpieces in a resonant decidedly present-day context. ** You are welcome to join both artists on Saturday, May 8, at the Gallery when they will lead an open discussion on art making. **
