Feder’s exhibition, titled Δ t (delta t = Change in Time) contemplates the geometry and emptiness of structures, both visually and metaphorically. Like silent sentries, they record, observe, and imply change in time. Buildings, as elements in the gigantic still life constructions that form our urban environment, inform both an understanding and unity with both the made and natural world.

The paintings, themselves, derive from an intersection of realism, abstraction and surrealism. Simone Kussatz, in ArtScene, writes that Feder’s paintings “are more about color combinations… and how paint is applied than subject matter… at once an aesthetic expression and a spiritual engagement.”

A third generation Coloradoan, Sharon studied painting since early childhood, then with Colorado Modernists Ed Marecak and Mark Zamantakis, at the University of Washington in Seattle with Norman Lundin and Michael Spafford and then with Bob Froese of Ouray and Montrose in the 1980's.

Her work has been enriched and informed also by decades of technical experience as a set designer, muralist, and sign artist, along with a life richly lived as a mother, mate, and student of nature. Her paintings and murals are included in numerous corporate, private and public collections.

The show runs through the month of January at Gallery 81435, located at 230 S Fir Street in Telluride, Colorado. Open daily from 12-6pm or by appointment.  www.Gallery81435.com, 970-728-3930
