This event has ended.

Strains of Satie, Debussy, Bach and Mendelssohn can be seen in Eby's paintings, where muted colors and forms rise and fall across the canvas like notes in a musical line. Drawing inspiration from the Night Music compositions of Béla Bartók, which sought to imitate the sounds of nature, Eby's paintings use abstract forms to create a visual landscape for sounds as subtle as the rustling of a butterfly's wings, or a field of flowers bowing in the wind.

Soft yellows, greys, reds and blues combine with bursts of richer tones to form the distinct palette of Eby's dreamlike paintings, all of which are done in encaustic on canvas and panel. The encaustic technique allows Eby to create a series of layers that gives each painting a unique sense of depth and texture, while the weightless and ethereal appearance of her works provides a thoughtful juxtaposition to the strenuous production behind them. Each of Eby's paintings is a world of its own, replete with colors and melodies that dance across the compositions and leaves viewers suspended somewhere between nature and their imaginations.
