Come listen to 'The Burning Wicks' featuring a mix of genres! 

This combo featuring AU Musicians Lee Kaufman-Berson on guitar, Kevin Eikenberg on set, and Colin Wick on tenor sax have been jammin' together for several years— loving jazz and classical among many other genres!

Solo Show: La Bellissima
Elizabeth Grusin-Howe

"La Bellissima" features some of Elizabeth Grusin-Howe's beautiful screenprints of Italy. From the quaint streets of Florence to the dramatic piazzas of Venice, the screenprints are richly colored and stunningly alive. Grusin-Howe utilizes a mix of traditional screenprinting, metallic ink, and wax to create a dreamy landscape.

Duo Show: Glimpses of Solitude
Sally Levie
"Glimpses of Solitude" is a series of rich paintings by Sally Levie featuring winter forests and summers in France. They depict abstracted forests in a state of tranquility. Levie's beautiful painting technique gives the forest a stunning texture and a unique purity.

Duo Show: Moments: Taking Shape
Trish Palasik
Trish Palasik's gorgeous figural sculptures capture fleeting moments. The sculptures are small and abstracted, graceful like dancers but incredibly emotional. The terra cotta sculptures draw you in and allow you to indulge in their curves.
