working with themes related to nature, color energy, feminist issues and light resonance.

Her artwork is in numerous prestigious corporations such as Graydon Law Firm, First Financial Bank, Von Lehman Accounting,
KMK Law and Johnson Investment Counsel.

Mary Barr Rhodes • Statement 2020
Rhodes’ liminal work is at the intersection of art, science and spirituality.
Colorful as the rainbow and sparkling with light, Rhodes’ paintings fascinate viewers on a primordial level.
A viewer first notices the beauty of the refracted light. Rhodes explores the many colors and the degrees of brightness of the glass refractions.
Rhodes removes any sort of narrative from the work so that the light energy connects with the viewer directly.
There is no denying the sheer beauty of the work.
Rhodes’ explores the work as a scientist. Light when split into different bands of color plays on the eye and the brain viscerally.
Light resonance is created by juxtaposing different pieces of glass which create small pockets of energy.
She mindfully places glass shards as if working a puzzle. Foils, films and layers of epoxy resin further increase the light energy.
Each painting is an experiment in the diversity of the electromagnetic spectrum.
Each artwork holds a specific luminous energy. She uses light resonance to rebalance and restore energy.
Viewers respond to, not only to their light energy but to the their tactile quality as well.
They want to reach out and touch the work, yearning to connect with the earth.
Rhodes work connotes the quantum energy of the unified field. Her process is a spiritual practice.

2021 Re-emerging at Pendleton Art Center - 510 Studio’s

WhimsEgal Art and Upholstery - by Gabrielle

2021 Re-emergence at 510 Studio’s at the Pendleton Art Center

I still have a passion for historical and traditional arts. I have always liked them with a twist. 

My two-dimensional work relies on graphite and colored pencil work. I enjoy imagining something a little different.
Postage stamp size drawing or combining subjects that don't normally coexist. 

This year - I am pushing creative Upholstery out of color and fabric combinations.
Using old french techniques of upholstery and melding them with sculptural ideas.
I still believe furniture to be a functional item and must be preserved in its usefulness. Beyond that, I imagine creative shapes.
