All Birds Fly - Robin & John Gumaelius and Michael Dickter

 

This delightful show represents a fusion of forms: painted surfaces on the wall and ceramic sculptures on pedestals.

The gallery is alive with kinetic ceramic creatures from Robin and John, that cavort and play in a imaginary world created by this wife and husband team.

And the gallery walls will dance with the forms of beautiful flowers and flying birds in Michael's painted mixed media landscapes.
