About Tria Gallery

Tria specializes in contemporary painting, photography and mixed media by established and emerging artists. In addition to artwork on exhibit, the gallery maintains an inventory of select works by its featured artists. Tria's three directors, Carol Suchman, Paige Bart and Latifa Metheny, are committed to presenting artists with compelling bodies of work, and ones whose stories should, in their estimation, be told.

"The energy level at Tria is impressive, as are their shows," says barebrush CEO, Ilene Skeen. "I am very excited that Tria is going to curate our December 2007 calendar. Their gallery is an open and friendly place and they know how to make visitors feel welcome. Carol, Paige and Latifa are enthusiastic about the barebrush concept and told me that they are very interested in art of the nude, so much so that they are currently planning a nude show at Tria for summer 2008.

When asked what they are expected from the artists of barebrush, Carol Suchman wrote, "December is a month of sweeping emotion. People feel great happiness and optimism towards the holiday season, but can also feel great sadness and desolation. We are looking for this emotion in the artist's work."
