Carter Wentworth – Plant Life Dialogue
Carter Wentworths earliest memories of the garden are the catalyst for his recent series Plant Life Dialogue. Observing nature and noticing its ability to create groupings and patterns over time in a garden, the artist strives to allow the layers of color and form to spread effortlessly in his paintings. Quoting one admirer of the work "Carters work is emotive connected and vibrates the colors and forms talk engage and satisfy new things emerge, old feelings reappear Carter puts the solace of nature on my walls."
Lisa Noonis – Monochromatic Abstracts
Lisa Noonis combines painting, drawing, mark-making, and collage in a new body of monochromatic abstracts. Over a year in the making, the process of creating the work is felt and seen through built up layers of collage, paint and graphite scribed into wet paint and onto the paintings surface. Black squares appear throughout the work paired with collaged drawings against quiet backgrounds. These mixed media works aim to provoke the presence of quiet strength amidst constant change. Lisa Noonis is a mixed-media painter whose work depicts a wide range of subject matter from still life and landscapes to personal narratives. Her paintings are expressive with a strong use of mark, color, and materials. Noonis is represented in galleries nationwide and is featured in many private collections. Click Here to view images.
Histories recorded on material surfaces through manufacture, use, wear, and maculations are the inspiration behind Dan Dowds assemblage/construction pieces. Combining discarded fragments of clothing once beloved or wished-for, along with other fragments of metal or rubber set the groundwork for relationships and inquiry. Suggestions of body parts, humor, and identity play supporting roles in all of these creations that often convey a sense of humor, trauma and tragedy. Extending life through this work and documenting repair and re-use reoccur as important themes.
Ernest Montenegro – flatmensquared
This exhibition includes a selection of steel and bronze sculptures from the artists series "flatmensquared". The artist explains, "By putting together boxes in random shapes, I found unexpected figures doing unexpected things; anti-allegorically they guided themselves into seeking a meaning boxes in search of a figure or actors in search of a play." The contrast of bronze, an ancient sculptural material, and stainless steel, a much more contemporary industrial material, connect the segmented figurative parts.

The Sotheby's International Realty® brand has introduced revolutionary augmented reality (AR) app Curate by Sotheby's International Realty(sm). Here are some of the ways the app will benefit homebuyers, sellers, and real estate agents.
According the Harvard Business Review's A Manager's Guide to Augmented Reality, research has shown that an AR experience allows consumers to form more accurate expectations, therefore increasing confidence in purchasing decisions and shortening the sales cycle.
For prospective homebuyers - Viewing a potential house in AR breaks down visualization barriers that often accompany the homebuying process, allowing prospective homebuyers the unique ability to envision the house in their personal taste and style. Curate by Sotheby’s International Realty offers the opportunity for buyers to ultimately see a house as their own home, increasing confidence in any purchasing decisions.
For home sellers / Sotheby’s International Realty clients - Selling a home with a Sotheby’s International Realty sales associate means tapping into the power of AR to sell the home by helping prospective buyers overcome the visualization barriers of touring an empty home or one decorated in style that differs from their taste.
For the Sotheby’s International Realty sales associate - The benefits for the sales associate are similar to those of the homebuyer and seller; Curate by Sotheby’s International Realty empowers the sales associate to present a home in an objective and neutral manner. The app also alleviates the need for sales associates to physically stage homes, allowing them to save money on the costs of either renting or buying and storing furniture.
"Curate by Sotheby’s International Realty is destined to become a go-to resource for Sotheby’s International Realty sales associates,” said Ashley F. Morris, vice president of marketing, Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty. “This app is the first of its kind for residential real estate and perfectly aligns with our goal to deliver an immersive experience tailored to each client's individual style. Curate by Sotheby’s International Realty unites innovation with our commitment to providing exceptional service to our clients by allowing sales associates to take on a meaningful role in the transformation of a house into a home."
The Sotheby’s International Realtyï¿½ brand has introduced revolutionary augmented reality (AR) app Curate by Sotheby’s International Realty(sm). Here are the key groundbreaking features of the app:
Visualization - Any property can be transformed through a curated selection of AR furnishings and dï¿½cor sets. Listing-specific staging options will be available in the near future.
Recollection - The app has screenshot capabilities, allowing viewers to capture and store the images of AR furniture sets placed within the visit.
Shop - Virtual home furnishings can be clicked for more information about the product, including a link to exit the app and be directed to a retailer's website. All furniture is shown to-scale and provides accurate room dimensions, ensuring furniture viewed in the app will be a fit, making purchasing and moving into a new home easier on new home buyers.
"The Sotheby’s International Realty brand has always been a leader when it comes to adapting new technologies to the real estate industry and understanding homebuying trends,” noted John Passerini, global vice president of interactive marketing, Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC. “Almost a decade ago, we committed to only displaying high-resolution photography on our website; we then had the foresight to understand that video would become increasingly important to homebuyers and so we introduced high-definition videography to our website; and then came 3D and Virtual Reality Tours with Matterport. We recognized that augmented reality is the way in which people will shop in the future and when Google approached us to be an official launch partner for ARCore, we knew it was the right move."
