Li Chen is represented here by several highly colored, rather impressionistic paintings of which “Autumn Landscape” stands out as her most interesting and subtle in composition and color. Margaret Hehman’s romantic landscapes are strong and show an innate sense of direction. Her “Harbor,” in a more expressionistic style, is a particularly sensitive painting. Ojeda shows some of his colorful charming though superficially decorative work, and Lee Hill exhibits her “Kabuki Dancer” which tends to be somewhat indecisive and weak structurally. Ken Glenn’s sculpture is chic and sleek while Henry Futoran’s forms have a weighty bulk, but both are somehow stiff and unyielding. Ray Freisz’s stylized brushwork is displayed in several landscapes, and a group of Richard Poole’s familiar expressionistic paintings are also included in the show.
