Sifting Through the Mind's Eye -
The Art Making Flourishes

The Galatea OnLine Gallery

May 6th, 2020
8th Edition

It's easy to be distracted by recent events international, national, local and personal. We are endowed with endless discipline to continue our art practice, demonstrated by the works of 8 of our artists below. As we navigate through the recent troubling events of this time, we begin to see a light at the end of the tunnel. We know there will be a new normal. Art practice continues. It's presentation unfolds.

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.

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.

This work by Philip Gerstein suggests a view of the hot desert sun; its title reflects a tribute to the work of C.S. Lewis, in which a traveler to Venus (Perelandra) encounters an opaque sky so that the sun and stars are not visible. The cool of the sky quenches and there is a pure breath in the horizon.

Tamara Gonda takes a dive and a swim on what is much deeper than the surface in this painting. There is much dimension, and one wonders what will be discovered within - is this a school of fish? A cloud's reflection? Or is the seemingly calm water agitated?

Tamara Gonda, Holding Pattern , Acrylic on Board, 30 x 30 inches, 2020, $1,600.00
This figure walks out of one world and into another. She is escaping from the deep veils of expectations of her into a world of her own making; one of beauty and light. The figure has a Mona Lisa-like smile on her face. She is steadfast and walks softly, yet with confidence.

Youngsheen A. Jhe, Illusion III , Oil on Canvas, 14 x 11 inches, 2020, $400.00
This is a sculptural painting in which layers of depth enhance and work in symbiosis with the forms. Influenced by the natural world around her, the artist makes a connection to ancient symbolism and places it in a futuristic vision.

Marjorie Kaye, Sunday Afternoon Light , Gouache on Sculpted Plywood with Putty,
10.5 x 10.5 x 3.5 inches, 2020, $1,100.00
"On a Clear Day You Can See Forever"...Yvonne Lamothe's crisp clarity invokes a cool Spring. The color portends Summer's growth. All of the seasons are seen as one encompassing symphonic gesture in this painting. Life is eternal.

Yvonne Troxell Lamothe, Connor Pond, Early Spring , Oil on Canvas, 20 x 24 inches, 2020, $1,400.00
This painting by Jeannine Hunter Lazzaro is an invitation into the artist's inner activity. The dimension of the piece creates a space of deep contemplation. It is not always a sunny day in the interior of our minds. But there is a window present, in which the night sky gives way to a bright and promising daybreak.

Jeannine Hunter Lazzaro, Rusting Earth and Sky , Mixed Media, 30 x 20 inches, 2020, $1,500.00
The paint in this work by Rose Leitner dances across the surface and one is completely energized by its exuberance. There is a spray of water as it cascades over rocks, all of the natural world in celebration through movement.

Rose Leitner, Undertow , Oil on PVC, 12 x 12 inches, $450.00
The light splashes in. This interior has seen so many days. There are the remnants of coffee cups clinking, laughter as stories are being told; the chairs take on human characteristics, in conversation, holding the moments of daily life being experienced and cherished.

Carolyn Letvin, Interior 45 , Oil on Wood Panel, 16 x 16 inches, 2019, $675.00
