Gathering and Grouping: Into the Future

The Galatea OnLine Gallery

May 6th, 2020
7th Edition

As we pick up the pieces from our recent flooding episode, we find ourselves regrouping and determined to gather our collective energies to move into a wonderful future incarnation.

Our gallery , as well as the art community at large, has the opportunity to remake itself, strengthened by the fortitude of our determination. Artists have always weathered the ups and downs of economic fluctuation, personal and collective, and now is no exception.

When the coast is clear, you can be sure that we will be there continuing our lively exhibition schedule, and we will keep you updated.

In the meantime our artists are working diligently in their home studios and have lots to share, so w e present the  Galatea OnLine Gallery . There is a new group of work featured every week, with a new group of artist members , so scroll down and enjoy.

Also, be sure to visit our Artsy page at to view our April and May members' work.

Again, we appreciate all the support and love that you have shared with us over the last decade and look forward to moving beyond this with you. We are happy to work with you on a purchase of artwork shown here, or answer any questions you might have. In this time when artists of all genres are struggling to keep their practice going, your support is especially valued.

For sales inquiries , please contact Marjorie Kaye at Our artists will be happy to ship the work to you at a cost to be determined.

To all , and in particular the SOWA community, artists of all kinds, and those that support us, we are strong and will survive. May all blessings, health, happiness, strength, wisdom, art and love be our gift.

Robin MacDonald-Foley's "Beach Trees in Winter" challenge the idea of the landscape being barren in the cold of the winter season. On the contrary, one can sense the life getting ready to emerge under the surface and the sap contemplating its flow.

David Lee Black's figure is a murmur on the surface of this textured platform. Ghostly figures fade into the past like memories that will never surface again.

David Lee Black, The Preparation , Photograph, 24 x 39 inches, 2017, $475.00
This work by Helen Canetta appears to the senses through a musical filter. Shapes bounce off of one another in a symbiotic power. The color is anything but arbitrary, sweeping across the panel and pooling in contained energies.

Helen Canetta, Inner Voice , Acrylic Painting, 36 x 36 inches, 2020, $2,100.00
The figure in this painting by Frank Capezzera is in between worlds. The stance is one of a contemporary denizen waiting for a bus or a delivery of some sort. But there is also an air of contemplative solitude, a questioning; a bridge between meaning and complacency.

Frank Capezzera, Frank Hopper House, S. Truro , Oil on Canvas, 24 x 36 inches, 2018, $800.00
Patrick Casey utilizes humor in "Control All Delete", and creates a world in which figures as the objects get lost in the subject! How do we avoid becoming computerized versions of ourselves, losing our individual natures?

Patrick Casey, Control All Delete , Woodcut, 25 x 25 inches, 2017, $500.00
Somewhere Over the Rainbow James Cole imagines Wizard of Oz characters masquerading as Pez dispensers. Why not? There is nothing this artist won't make into a Pez dispenser. Pure joy.

James Cole, The Road to Pez , Oil Painting, 18 x 18 inches, 2019, $100.00
Randa Dubnick calls upon memories of the mountains of Colorado, her birthplace; she finds an inexhaustible source of exploration in the shadows and light of the forms juxtaposed. Color becomes a fleeting thing depending on the sun's position in the sky.

Randa Dubnick, Loveland Pass in Mid-Summer , Acrylic Watermedia on Aquaboard,
16 x 20 inches, 2020, $400.00
The wave's motion is one caught between the act of rising and the act of exploding into the sea itself in this photograph by Justin Freed. It stands on the precipice, gravity beckoning it; the promise of the roar of its disintegrating power is caught in a moment.

Justin Freed, The Wave , Photograph, 24 x 36 inches, 2015, $425.00
