Art Show displays the work of Ann Flemings, Rob Monroe and Laura Sturtz
The artists represented in this exhibition are inspired by the natural world yet interpret it in divergent and complementary ways. Sturtz’s interesting range of sculptural creations, combined with the intense colors of Flemings acrylic paintings, are complemented by Monroe’s thoughtful and intriguing geometric patterns.
Ann Flemings creates visually compelling and vivid artwork. Interested in how color contributes to our experience of form and movement, she creates visual harmony from a potential cacophony of hues. She investigates the dynamics of line, shape and color to explore landscapes in an abstract way. By applying abstraction to familiar settings, she questions what we believe nature to be.

Rob Monroe interweaves complex layers of colored threads to create exciting visual interest. Since his youth, he has been fascinated by visual patterns, the math behind them and the visually changing detail that can be constructed. He picks patterns, colors and arrangements of pieces to create a thread of conversation that informs and entertains. For more on Monroe, visit www.ThreadUponThreads.com
Laura Sturtz is a versatile artist exploring both geometric and organic forms in her artwork. Her sculptural creations are comprised of fragments of various materials that she has made, altered, and/or found. These diverse and varied elements become a unified creation in her quilt series, wall reliefs, mobiles, and art chess sets. For more on Sturtz, please visit www.Artist123.com
