Day Into Night... as the world turns, the edge of night crawls under our comforters. Where fools fear to tread, artists leap with abandon, like a guy whose bungee cord broke and lands head first in nirvana whip cream. Not every landing is soft but the ones you can walk away from are generally considered artistic successes.

 

 

 

 

Gary Ampel tingles a haloweeny nerve in his "Barn". It's reminiscent of a Bates motel scene with partridges.
One of our three celebrated solo artists this month is Michael Davidoff. He shows the frosty side of the dark season in his "Winter Near Danville".

 

 

 

 

William Accorsi's Pinnochioid "Musician" plays a jig on the pan pipes and Bronson Eden's super graphic "Extinction Trilogy" dances the horn pipe twice around the deck.
D. Friend is an obvious impasto. His "Cottage" rides on a crusty crest of pigment, the likes of which haven't been seen since Lindberg's confetti strewn parade.

 

 

Sarah Hesh conjured up a musical scrabble game in her first Arts Upstairs submission called "Light & Reason Part II".

 

 

Douglass J. Mguire illuminates the already luminous in "Zena Cornfield + Reservoir II".

 

 

Ingrid Mazerat is the next solo artist to fall under the microscopic gaze of Art Safari with her haunting "Saugerties Light House". You can see more of her work at her website, ingridmazeratphotography.com

 

 

Astrid Nordness has evolved more zany creatures than Charles Darwin. Here is "The Thing That Will Not Be Named".

 

 

Rita Schwab uses fresco and resin to create juicy glowing panels. Here is "Dance Into Night".

 

 

Ken Whyte is our third solo artist this month and his photos are so vivid you can almost taste the chowder. Here is "Maine Harbor".

 

 

Now Here's one after my own fart by Babette Kiesel titled "Dark Side of the Moon Revealed".

 

Looks pretty well lit to me. Be careful it doesn't ignite.
