Gallery Blue Door is closed for the holiday season, but we will be back open in the new year with a new format for the way we exhibit. The gallery is now divided and in the rear there will be a permanent exhibit for gallery owner Scott Philip Goergens that will rotate work on a regular basis. The remainder of the gallery has three spaces that host solo exhibits on an overlapping and rotating basis with differing exhibit durations. In lieu of Closing Receptions for the exhibits, we have Wednesday and Friday gallery hours and can be open at a moments notice for a visit.
Please save the date of January 15th 2022, for the Opening Receptions of – Compatible Union – Kelly L. Walker, Imaginary Worlds – Robert Hoffman, and Rough Road – Markus. If you click on the images above, you will be directed to the pages for more information about each exhibit as well as their press kit.
Kelly L Walker’s abstract paintings demonstrate the techniques, textures, and patterns she employs as a professional decorative painter. She pushes mediums past their intended purposes, encouraging them to collide and react, not rejecting happy accidents and forcing incompatible materials to meet.
Robert Hoffman attended Indiana University (BFA – painting major), but found himself drawn to fibers and mixed media and taught himself how to embroider and combine mediums. This opened up a world of possibilities. In Robert’s work, landscapes are whimsical environments for his birds. In this imaginary landscape, birds take on the narratives of humans.
Markus often creates his work in series of 4, 8, 12 or more pieces that share a related feeling or theme, though he pursues no statements or social commentary. He has been an artist for 35 years, but in 2014 he turned his attention solely to 3D work, and now focuses exclusively on abstract assemblage in metal, wood, concrete, glass and found objects from the alleys of his home city of Baltimore.Learn More
