Adventures Close to Home

Exhibition: February 3 – July 25, 2018

The works in Ryan Syrell’s Adventures Close to Home depict intimate domestic spaces and objects – paintings which grow out of running dialogues and exchanges, relationships, personal histories, and trajectories. They navigate bedrooms, kitchens, tables, desks, and dressers – seeking out, and celebrating a cluttered and cacophonous intimacy. They present keys, cups, plants, computers, paintings, pens, shadows, movements, and absences with equal significance. Syrell paints in a manner that articulates a sense of movement, interconnectivity, and slippage with regard to language and perception. These paintings inhabit the peripheral moment before sensation and language are reconciled in one another. Simultaneously joyful and anxious, manic and celebratory, these spaces can feel overwhelming or claustrophobic, but also by turns calm, ludic, and absurd. The artist employs a form of painting concerned with imbuing vitality into the mundane — seeking out, amplifying, and articulating beautiful moments without ignoring the pervasive anxiety of the time.

Extravagant Visions, Extraordinary Imaginings

Reception: July 14, 2-4pm

Exhibition: July 7 – August 3, 2018

We have increasingly come to see the period of childhood as singular and deserving of protection, during which the child develops best when left to his own natural instincts and in close relation to nature. In practice, the modern world discourages this healthy development, robbing children of the time, space, and safety to do their life’s work: play. All the works in the exhibition suggest the role that imagination, dreams, and childhood memories play in the creation of art. Some of them present the nightmares of fairytales and the loss of innocence, while other celebrate the joys of exploration, games, and the experience of experimentation and tinkering. Art becomes a window into our collective past, and the ways in which we experience the present, sometimes joyful, sometimes disturbing, and sometimes illuminating. To be an artist is to have the ability to recapture childhood at will, with the imagination, curiosity, tactility, and openness that entails.

Artists: Tim Doud, Carol Barsha, Suzy Kopf, Zoe Friedman, Billy Friebele, Sarah Magida, Randi Reiss, Will Watson, Christine Tillman, Nancy Daly, Linda DePalma, Ed Bisese, Khanh Le, Jennifer McBrien, Benjamin Piwowar, Gregory Ferrand, Lingling Lui

Developing fluid, intimate, and openly sexual subject matter, it tells stories of loss and insight through conflicting cultures and gender roles. By exhibiting photography-based collage and sculpture, this exhibition applies the two-dimensional surface to a three-dimensional space, depicting a more deeper and wider way of idealizing images of the female body. It also contains artists who use their art to speak to the particular issues that they face as women.

Viewfinding

Reception: June 1, 6-9pm

Exhibition: June 1 – July 7, 2018

From a young age, Hannah Leighton became aware of the power of visual language, specifically the type of freedom to express the complex ways in which thoughts and feelings are interwoven. She found that, like many other dyslexic children, she struggled to decipher the code that provides entry into the world of literacy. Letters often melted into mounds of nonsense, and the strange fusion of sound and sight was unintelligible unless linked to an image. The learning of language required perseverance and a willingness to endure the confusion of entering a foreign land. Flashing forward, she found the act of painting to tap her earliest experience with language and the challenges associated with it, and she must constantly relinquish preconceptions and make space for the unexpected. Hannah sees her work as striving for freedom by tapping into the act of making in a non self-conscious way to achieve pure expression. 
Hannah first developed a relationship to Make Studio when she and her collaborators curated a Make Studio show at Ballroom Gallery. She sees the Gallery Network show as an expansion of that first show, but also an expansion in the collaborative relationship with Make Studio and their artistsShe loves how liberated and open Make Studio artists are in their own expression and development of ideas and art. Hannah, like Make Studio artists, wants to work against labels. In this exhibition, which will focus on Hannah’s recent paintings and fabric transfers alongside complementary pieces contributed by Make Studio artists, gallery visitors are invited to change their perspectives. Visitors will further become active “viewers”, as they will be able to interact with Hannah’s “Viewfinders” — colorful hula-hoop like objects that invite them to creatively frame their artwork through.

TRUTH(s): Real – Imagined or FAKE!

Reception: July 19, 6-8pm

Exhibition: July 9 – September 8, 2018

This is an exhibition that gives the artist and the community the opportunity to examine and reflect on the question of TRUTH(s) – what constitutes a truth in the contested times in which we all live? The second decade of the 21st century in America and the World continues to witness a marathon of troubling event that tests the limits of our faith and hope in humanity. Information is channeled through so many varied sources one does not know what to expect or how to deal with the erratic events that have become global. This is a rich mind field for the artist – in all media – to draw attention to the role that “TRUTH(s) – Real, Imagined, or FAKE” play out in our daily lives.

Artists: Jeffrey Kent, Joyce J. Scott, and more.

Invisible Cities

Exhibition: Exhibition: Sept. 30, 2017 – Sept. 30, 2018

Over the past four years Adam Davies has built a series of photographs showing structures in the American landscape that are overlooked or marginalized: deserted sites, hidden passageways, the undersides of bridges. These are sites of dissonance, between order and disorder, beauty and neglect, wealth and poverty, decay and renewal, past and present. While devoid of people, they bear marks of human actions. Traces of graffiti, unexpected reflections, retrofitted alterations, and unusual debris reveal layered histories that pile, accordion-like, onto a single place. 

Rather than as documentary photographs, Davies thinks of his works as psychological portraits of places seen through the gaze of the 8 × 10 inch large-format camera. This camera permits the lens to move independently of the film, allowing adjustments of perspective and focus to create images that are visually complex and immersive. The resultant images are intended to slightly disorient the viewer, creating a dreamlike sense of time and place.
