Common Ground strives to be the center of a vibrant community. Our owners believe that a vibrant community is one that is alive with art.
Our gallery is located in our highly utilized Flatlander Classroom, a space dedicated to connecting the community, facilitating educational opportunities focusing on healthy living, and providing access to local artists. This multi-use space is ideal for integrating the arts into the urban environment and creating partnerships among artists, the community and business. This year, we will be hosting two artist at a time, allotting each artist a locked case that is 8’ long x 44’’ high x 4’’ wide. We always welcome kids and group shows to apply!
Newest Installations of Two Local Artists: Esther Seungbo Roh and Dee Noelle Savaria
Color and Dream by Esther Seungbo Roh
Esther Seungbo Roh's Artist Statement:
My art is transmitted through painting, and my painting is influenced by the social complexity of the urban space in which we live. By focusing on these types of space, I try to express solemn, bleak, yet splendid feelings. My work uses the canvas as a whole and expands to a two-dimensional dimension using simple colors and light to show my artistic intentions. My work is based on a unique way of organizing space according to the artist's invisible sensational order, which comes from inside. Since 2009, by creating geometric compositions with the images of everyday life with simple shape, I have performed my projects by frequently using the five colors that represents the traditional Korean beauty. My canvas includes images and objects from everyday spaces, which occupy the monochromatic planes in blue, red, or yellow. The subjects of my works are derived from the common spaces that we encounter daily.

Youth and Universe by Dee Noelle Savaria
Dee Noelle Savaria's Artist Statement:
My name's dee noelle. Originally from Chicago. Visual art has always been an influence in my development, but I started more actively painting and drawing in 2011. Since then I've been largely self taught and developed a personal style. In my work, I attempt to capture narrative moments, allowing youthful complexity to rhythmically unfold. Thanks for checking it out!
