"Fractured Fantasy" opens with an artists' reception Friday, July 28, 7 to 9 and runs through August 8.

Fractured Fantasy Bowersock Gallery

It would be a challenge to find two more diverse works sharing an exhibit space than that of Alan Ammann and Helene Bess. That they are so different, and yet so complementary is what "Fractured Fantasy" at Bowersock Gallery is all about; a convergence of styles. 

Helene is a sculptor, Alan a painter. She build's fantastical creatures from all manner of materials, he paints imagined, unexplored, fractured, worlds. Still, their colors and concepts complement one another in a delightful way. Ammann's energetic, colorful contemporary oils move the eye around the canvas like a pinball machine; pleasing as a whole, with moments to rest on and get lost in, a wonderful duality. Ammann, an atelier-trained painter, shows throughout the US. Initially, a realist painter, one of Ammann's portraits was selected as a semifinalist in the prestigious Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery triennial portrait competition. Today he explores abstraction, with an emphasis on composition, shape and movement and illusionistic light.
