An Exploration of Portals

The Margaret Clark Morgan Gallery, 10 W. Streetsboro St., Hudson, hosts An Exploration of Portals — original artwork by local artists Jan Noden and Karen Koch — April 1 through May 28, with a public reception to meet the artists Thursday, April 10, 4–7 p.m.

A portal can be a door, a gateway, or an entrance, often one that is large and imposing. Portals are symbols of entry points marking the passage from one place to another. When the artists met to begin collaborating on this exhibition, they talked about where they normally found inspiration, such as nature and memories, which are recurring themes in their individual work.

They talked about memories being transitions between past and present. They talked about other types of transitions — windows, arches, bridges — that are gateways between one place and another. The theme for the show was born — An Exploration of Portals.

The artists are Karen Koch, whose studio is located on Main Street in Hudson, and artist Jan Noden, who lives in Ravenna. Karen relies on her love of nature and memories of days gone by for inspiration. Her recent work explores distant memories and the feelings they evoke; the results are colorful abstract paintings and collages. Jan explores water-based media as well as collage by combining printing, painting, drawing, and photography.

For this exhibition, the artists created all new artwork. You will see arches and bridges, windows and gates. Some look real; some are abstract. Some are based on specific places; others are imaginary.

The Margaret Clark Morgan Gallery is free and open to the public Monday through Friday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. It hosts several exhibitions each year. To learn more about the gallery and the Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation please visit www.mcmfdn.org
