Gazette: Puzzling, dazzling abstract art

The Gazette reviewed Colorado Springs Abstract. T.D. Mobley-Martinez writes, "There are works here that are simply beautiful, a quality that for some viewers has meaning enough. Dawn Wilde's recent large-scale paintings are a riot of color, movement and organic form. Like Wilde's work, Corey Drieth's gemlike pieces of pigment on wood planks are strangely poetic, but with the quiet simplicity of a Zen koan. The same is true of Holly Parker's imagistic imprints of found pools of oil and dirt, called "Untitled (Roman Buses I-IIIV)."

"At the center of it all, Bill Burgess' sculptures demand attention. Some are gritty; some are sleek and invite a caress. Exquisite."
