While organizing this exhibit, Roesch visited Pastine in her California studio and saw a new commission the artist was working on. "There was so much energy, I literally got tears in my eyes," she says. "It was unbelievable. She watched me and said, 'I really was hoping for something like that.' When you stand in front of these paintings, you realize what's going on here. You have to see these paintings in person. It doesn't come through the screen, all the energy that they generate." Opening reception: 5 to 7 p.m. November 6. Regular viewing hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Through December 31. Gallery Sonja Roesch, 2309 Caroline.
