Joan Sonnenberg: A Retrospective  
In the Gallery June 16- July 29 • At the age of 5, Joan became interested in the
real and imaginary facets of art and life which have formed the basis of her artwork
ever since.  

Interested in geometric patterns achieved through multiple reverse etching processes,
Joan superimposes and stacks up to ten images on top of each other until it becomes
a complex montage of lines, shapes, and patterns. She strives to alter and combine
abstraction with realism; capturing marks made over time through human
intervention; the mundane, decaying worn objects, dumpsters, wall graffiti. She
also portrays street people, each embedded with stories to tell. She strives to convey
the harmonious coexistence of abstraction and realism, transcending and encompassing
both doctrines.  

Opening reception: June 16, 5-7 p.m. • See it first! This free event is open to the public.
Come meet your neighbors and enjoy light refreshments!  

Theatre Gallery Artist: Christian De Jesus is an artist from Fort Myers Florida, who
has placed and won in many art shows in the area. His medium of choice is acrylic paint
on canvas or cardboard, but he also uses clay and spray paints on occasion.  

Member Gallery Artist: Our walls will be awash in artwork from our Summer Arts Camp students.
