Separate Currents: Two from the Choptank

Chaney Gallery, 2nd floor

Paintings by Lesley Giles and mixed media sculptures by Theresa Knight McFadden, two artists who live and work in Cambridge, MD with studios near the Choptank River. 

Gallery Reception & AIR Open Studios: Thursday, November 12 | 5:30 - 7 pm

Lesley’s architectural landscape paintings are inspired by her travels through Europe, China and the USA. Her dramatic, colorful oil paintings and her smaller works on paper depict her fascination with man-made dereliction, gas stations, water and floating fabrics.  

Theresa's large vessels and expressive figurative works are made from clay and other mixed media. Brightly colored and textured they often appear playful but many have a subtle, deeper context which address such human elements as loss, fear, personal power or sexual politics.
