Welcome to the paintings of Douglas O. Pedersen, oil on canvas, and the collages of Kelsey Hauck. The art on view here is Expressionist figuration devoted to the exploration of the universal human experience and is the focus in the oeuvre of both artists. Pedersen mixes his pigments with a cooked medium used by Rubens, enriching the vitality of the image without the sheen of varnish. Hauck uses retrouver papers including old Japanese calligraphed mercantile accounts, torn-up lithographs, home-made papers, origami papers, commercial wrappers, wallpapers, maps,1930s cloth paper, etc. Hauck and Pedersen have both done occasional still lifes and landscapes; Pedersen has series of still lifes and landscapes in oil, ink and mixed media.

A serious collector needs to journey here to this 100 year-old mercantile building for a face to face interaction with the art and the unique environment in which it was created: The large wall of 24 Pedersen oil heads, 8 to a row, in the photograph on this page is a remarkably powerful presentation; there is an interplay and dialogue between the artworks of Hauck and Pedersen.
