Amply demonstrating that Seabourn is an outstanding “action painter” as well as an expressionist is “Pony Up,” a black and lavender hued acrylic of a horse turning away from us at full gallop.

Holladay is an attorney who uses printmaking inks and oils as his primary media, many of whose works on paper originate from printmaking processes.

Strong, crude but expressive works in the show include oils of a “Boy With (a) Stick,” of a woman in a red dress “Dwelling on (the) Past,” and of three bizarre mummy-like figures “Returning Home.”

Nearly mummy-like, too, are Holladay's oils of a “Prairie Apparition,” of a woman covering her mouth in “Surprise,” and of a “Lost” figure who seems to be embracing himself or herself.

A black “Woman With (a) Necklace,” sitting on a green field, in front of a flat red background, brings to mind an ancient Egyptian or Ethiopian, while Holladay's bikini-clad “Beach Girl” seems modern. More abstract, but well-handled, are such oils as “Good Vibrations,” “Zimbabwe Water Falls” and “Sleeping Egyptian.”
