Opening Reception: An empty meeting ground

An empty meeting ground

by Gilbert Neri

An empty meeting ground is a place, or a time, where something might happen. It is also a place where something occurred prior to one’s arrival. In either case, an empty meeting ground is haunted with signs and clues that can be read like evidence from a crime scene. The events in these meeting grounds however are ephemeral and leave little trace of their existence, if any at all.

OPENING RECEPTION: December 3,  6-9PM

Exhibition runs: December 3 - December 20

Gallery Hours: 11-4PM, Wednesday-Saturday

[re]generation & [re]newal

a solo show by Jennifer de Poyen

Exhibit Run: October 23-November 19, 2016

Gallery hours 11-4 Wednesday to Saturday

Jennifer de Poyen’s [re]generation & [re]newal is a series of paintings and prints created in the wake of her father’s diagnosis of terminal lung cancer. Using chance as an active partner in the creative process, she began working with ink on paper, an ephemeral, unforgiving medium. This seemed an apt means to explore the fragility of life, a theme that preoccupied her during the months that followed. Collectively, these brooding yet buoyant paintings offer a poignant meditation on the cycle of life, death, and regeneration. The exhibition is dedicated to the artist’s father, John St. Sauveur Poyen. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the American Lung Association.

The Secondary Intent

  • Space 4 Art

by Ingram Ober and Marisol Rendón

The Secondary Intent

EXHIBITION RUN: SEPTEMBER 17th - OCTOBER 15TH, 2016

OPENING RECEPTION: 6-9 PM, SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 17th

CLOSING RECEPTION: TIME TBD, SATURDAY OCTOBER 15TH, 2016

GALLERY HOURS: 11-4PM, WEDNESDAY-SATURDAY

The Secondary Intent features two multi-media installations of objects and imagery by Ingram Ober and Marisol Rendón; one reconfiguring functionally obsolete objects, the other elevating objects from mundane to opulent. Ober and Rendón re-contextualize and/or memorialize surreal moments of low-culture kitsch, ornate beauty, and accepted principles of taste and pleasure. They share an appreciation for objects unapologetic for their origins and perhaps unsure of a new, or “Secondary Intent.” Can finely crafted, yet outdated, designs break free from their original aesthetics and renegotiate their value as decorative objects? What happens when disposable, consumer-driven choices are re-considered within the cannon of respected crafts?

They outnumber us, predate us, and can have large impact on our functioning.  Over the past decade, new research has emerged shedding light on the influence of gut bacteria on our health, mood, behavior and feelings.  This exhibition explores the wonderful and terrifyingly elusive world thriving inside and outside us, blurring the boundaries between the microscopic and macroscopic in an effort to raise questions about the extent of human agency.
