Jon Imber: Human Interest presents portraits by an acclaimed Massachusetts and Maine-based painter completed in the years before and in the months after his 2012 diagnosis with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. The portraits, painted with Imber’s commanding expressive gestures, intimately record his time with friends and family, displaying physical traces of likeness informed by memories, history, mythology, and the artist’s self-awareness.

The intent of this exhibit is to present a selection of artists working with color as either the subject or subtext of their work, each exploring color tactilely (sensory), symbolically to define and demarcate space as well as human physical presence, or formally to create the illusion of space through color relationships.
