New Show Opening January 17th




Patterns is a new exhibition at UpTown Gallery featuring recent works by Assem Hamdy, Laurie Spieker, and Eekta Trienekens.


The show runs from January 17th to March 12th, 2023.




Assem Hamdy is an Architect, whose drawings in pencil and pastel integrate architecture with the green world. Patches of green help him to grasp patterns underlying the seeming chaos that accumulates in our architecture, and bring life into constructed spaces.


For Laurie Spieker, the natural world provides solid ground and guidance, as she seeks to understand the patterns in her life. From ritual morning coffee to standing before a water lily pond – surface gently rippling in a light and unseen breeze – pattern seeing and making is a quilt that she pulls around herself as she travels through time.


Clay keeps Eekta Trienekens connected to the patterns of the earth. She considers it a magical medium, containing many parts of us and our history.
