The ability to create, and to assign meaning to, marks and shapes is a uniquely human trait. Image making, symbol writing, written language development are part of the impulse to assign meaning to and communicate information about things.

Structures and Machines

Structures and Machines

Works by Shingo Furukaw and Gerald Weckesser

September 4 – October 16, 2014

An artist's life is fraught with the challenge of finding enough time. If we are lucky, our day jobs support our creative lives. But it is all too easy for our own studio practice to take a back seat, to occupy only a small portion of the day.

2014 – 2013

This year, forty-eight artists participated in the process and a total of one-hundred-eight works were submitted for consideration.

An installation by Charlotte Hamlin

September 5 – October 17, 2013

"No experience has been too unimportant, and the smallest event unfolds like a fate, and fate itself is like a wonderful, wide fabric in which every thread is guided by an infinitely tender hand and laid alongside another thread and is held and supported by a hundred others."

Material Matters

Material Matters

Works by Kat Cope, Henry Daniel Gatlin, Mary Hurwitz, and Christian Kozaki

March 7 – April 10, 2013

Art making is inherently a material process. One could debate the finer points of this statement, but ultimately, art is a process of physical transformation. Sometimes these processes are a means to an end, and, as such, do not necessarily impact the meaning or content of the work in an overt way. More often though, the materials directly inform the work; the meaning of the work is bound to its materiality.



Works by Meghan Brady, Nick Lamia, Steve McCall, Gabriel Phipps, and Dannielle Tegeder

January 24 – February 22, 2013

Simultaneity is a term defining the phenomenon of relative perspectives or points of view in relation to a singular event or occurrence. You and I might witness the same event at the same time, but our frames of reference determine our perception of the experience. Even if our positions are close to each other, it is impossible for us completely agree on some aspects of what we have both witnessed.

Aristides Pereira: A Man and His Journey
Cape Verde: A Land and its People

Photographs by Ron Barboza

November 8 – December 14, 2012

We are pleased to present this collection of photographs by Ron Barboza. Barboza began to photograph Cape Verde during a trip he made in 1975. He continues to document the islands and his images reveal a land and a people through a time of transition toward independence. Cape Verde is an archipelago or island chain almost 400 miles west of Senegal, West Africa.

Counter Tension

Counter Tension

An Installation by Doug Cluff, Lisa Hansel, Mike Hansel, and Ted Sturtevant

September 6 – October 19, 2012

Counter Tension asks the question, "What is an art object?" Or in this case, "Where is the art object?" It is a conversation with the space of the gallery itself and one that explores ideas of alchemy - of the transmutation of one thing into another. It also references philosophical notions of illusion and representation.
