Craig Rubadoux has been described as a “Sarasota master," and his mastery of figure and form, composition and gesture are plain to see in every work. His paintings are intensely personal glimpses into particular emotions, and he frequently speaks of his work as a journal. Greatly affected by his environment and a love of nature, Rubadoux focuses on line, color, and spatial relationships. While the subject matter varies, it embodies the artist's personal conception of the world and his feelings and responses to that world. His art is included in many public and private collections, including the Guggenheim Museum, the High Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, and The Ringling. "It takes only a glance to recognize a Rubadoux creation," says Sheila Moore, the director of Allyn Gallup Contemporary. "His style is inimitable and unforgettable." Moore says this exhibit will showcase several of Rubadoux’s new works.

“I think of my paintings as a tangible trail of where my mind has wandered,” says Dee Hood. “These recent works explore ideas about other worlds, the transmitting and receiving of information from the known and the unknown.” Hood, who taught at Ringling College from 1993 to 2015, is known for her work in painting, sculpture and experimental video. Her work has been widely exhibited in regional, national and international shows and film festivals. She says these new works are a “journey into a universe where unseen connections tug at the mind, spirit and hand in a desire to communicate.” Hood adds that her video, “A Shufflebackfuck,” was “created in the aftermath of the Trump election. It seems we are now in a country with no forward only back.” For more information, visit www.deehood.net.

Dolores Coe is a painter working with, and across, diverse media and processes. Her interest in the mind—how we process fragments of experience and the stories we then tell—is an undercurrent in the imagery of the invented spaces and constructed narratives of her current paintings. The works in this exhibition include seven new paintings, all oil on canvas, ranging in scale from four to six feet. Coe says they “mark a rather abrupt shift and development in a new direction. More specific representation has yielded to abstraction and intense saturated color; reference to specific space or character is more elusive and suggestive. Painting and impulses are, perhaps, more direct, raw and guttural. Motifs are derived from direct photo sources along old haunts—rural Hwy 441—but now in a mash-up of an abstract, charged world, in response to a set of newly coagulated conditions and influences. Life pivots--and the art, then, pivots too.”

Coe received an MFA in painting from the University of South Florida. Her work is exhibited regionally and nationally in museums and galleries, including the Tampa Museum of Art, USF Contemporary Art Museum, and North Miami Museum. She was awarded a resident fellowship at the Riksacadame in Amsterdam, and grants received include the Florida Individual Artist Fellowship in Painting and the Arts Council of Hillsborough County, Individual Artist award. Coe’s paintings are included in a number of public, private and corporate collections throughout the region, among them IBM, General Telephone, Tampa General, State of Florida and the University of South Florida. Coe is currently curator of USF’s Art in Health Programs with the University of South Florida Contemporary Art Museum in Tampa---and lives and maintains her studio on the Little Manatee River in Ruskin, Florida.

Allyn Gallup Contemporary Art was established in 1991. Since then, the gallery has earned the reputation as the leading place in southwest Florida to view contemporary art. The gallery’s collection includes paintings, sculptures, mixed-media assemblages, works on paper and prints by mid-career artists with well-established exhibition records. The gallery also occasionally showcases works by promising emerging artists.
