"Singular Vision" Jeanne McLeish and Mark Burkett – it’sALLart – Aug. 6, 2003 – 3 stars

McLeish has a tunnel vision green and brown watercolor palette for her woodsy plein air efforts. Lovely and technically on the mark, they still feel tight and safe. Burkett's " Bottom-land" farmscape is inspired compared to other efforts on exhibit. A mauve underpainting peeks through a pale blue sky (slightly grey with lavender), edges of distant barns and around bare branches of trees. Yellow dabbles dot their way across the lavender and pale orange foreground. It'sALLart owner, artist Keith Hampton, has altered and oomphed the interior of the former Eye Blink space by painting the walls flat white and the floors terra cotta - a color picked up in the benches and throughout the space. The painting presentation is great. Rotating selections of Hampton's own distinguishable landscapes and flowers are deservedly always on view. Worth a visit. Through Sept. 8, 2003. 317-852-5461. – Mary Lee Pappas
