Gloria Plevin: A Life in Art Like the breath of memory, the works of Gloria Plevin present a moment gracefully imagined and conscientiously realized in a personal consideration of time. In that time there is stillness and then a presentation, and then something of reflection. The works hold that stillness as a meditation without intent to surprise or disturb. But there is cautious mystery that takes from the world and rearranges purposefully and personally – a world that can be touched, yet is tantalizingly elusive to the grasp.
