Julie Nester Gallery UP:. Forms in Light features new work by Brad Overton, a still-life painter who has been painting in the American Realist style. He has created a series of paintings where empty cardboard boxes are subjects, "posed" against a dark gray backdrop. The brilliance in the work lies within the detail of the cardboard and the play between light and shadow.|0|AND: Daniel Ochoa's evocative figurative paintings show an artist that is adept at translating the mood of the subject, while his use of abstraction within his process provides a veil of ambiguity and gesture. In Aguafiestas, imagery such as Spanish galleons, buildings and portraits are deconstructed. A metanarrative exists less in the paintings and more in how the viewer interprets the pragmatic imagery. Painting in layers, Ochoa uses masking techniques to jumble formal qualities such as abstraction, realistic representation, and language. |1|

Gallery 25 UP: Ron Harvey believes that the greatest artist of all is God, and the aspen tree is one of God’s great achievements. When admiring a mountainside covered with aspen trees, most people are unaware that those thousands of trees are all one individual plant, each tree sharing the same basic root.
Harvey’s exhibit includes landscapes, barns, farm implements, wildlife, and flowers. He is fascinated by what light is doing to his subject, and often focuses his painting around the effect of reflected light. |4|
