Tribute to husband

Michelle Sanzi Kermes pays tribute to her late husband in For the Love of Wiley, on display today through Oct. 26 at the Resurgam Gallery.

The former cartographer layers painting over randomly placed collage items in pieces that are abstract and simple. But the seemingly freeflow art isn't quick or chaotic. Rather, the works speak to the calm emotions and meditative spirit from which Kermes drew while caring for her ailing partner last summer.

A reception for For the Love of Wiley will take place from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Oct. 11.

The Resurgam Gallery is at 910 S. Charles St. For more information, call 410-962-0513.
