Maud Taber-Thomas: Thinkers and Dreamers, thru January 7. A passionate scholar of classic literature, an avid classical musician, an eager European traveler, an aficionado of past time periods, Maud Taber-Thomas interweaves all of these into her artwork. Maud’s artistic process is strongly tied to the skills employed by artists from past generations, from the Renaissance Tenebrists, to French Rococo painters, to the Pre-Raphaelites and Impressionist portraitists. Working in miniature, on a larger than life scale, and every size in between, Maud endows all of her works with a sense of the fleeting nature of light, a celebration of color, and a sympathetic and tranquil sense of peace and thoughtfulness. Many of her works feature sensitive portraits that evoke the complex inner life of her subjects, hinting at stories that transcend the single moment that can be depicted in a visual. Maud’s drawings and paintings exist within a peaceful conversation between the many art forms that she loves. In her work, music, sweet poetry-and the fine arts-agree.

Rodgers Naylor: The Café Life, February 10 – March 11. Adhering to a realistic yet painterly style, Naylor paints in an “alla prima” manner, which allows great flexibility in mixing colors and attaining soft edges, fostering a fresh, spontaneous approach to painting.
For his upcoming exhibition at Susan Calloway Fine Arts, Naylor delves into modern day “cafésociety”. In Parisian life in the late 18th and early 19th century, cafés were places of companionship as well as intellectual discourse, and often enough, just frivolous enjoyment. Though we don’t hear the term “café society” often now, the concept and its lifestyle are very much alive today. This exhibition explores the café as a gathering place for people of all ages and walks of life to break bread peacefully together, to enjoy the camaraderie, as well as that extra cup of coffee.
Susan Calloway Fine Arts specializes in contemporary art by local, regional, and international artists, and offers a selection of vintage and antique American and European oil paintings as well. The gallery provides extensive art consulting services for business and residential clients and collaborates with architecture and design trades. The gallery also specializes in conservation framing using archival-quality materials and techniques.
