Juxtaposition 2, High Wire Act

“We are constantly on the edge. On the edge of what? Chaos? Disaster? Beauty? Truth?  Extinction? An evolutionary leap? The work in this exhibition deals with these questions. … My hope is that you will slow down, look carefully, and remember that we are always on the edge.”

Spectacle 2

Spectacle 2

“…I often use the idea of a violent, but steady and abrasive, act of destruction to manipulate an object. This process-based way of working reflects my interest in the human impulse to hyper-control, build upon, and ultimately destroy the landscape.”

Steven Donegan | Garden Phase
Digitally woven textiles
May 4–June 30

Three Hands

Three Hands

“…I still wander and, as I do, I look into my garden’s foliage and consider that all of my viewpoints are happening simultaneously. The whirl of it, happening all at once, becomes my task: To channel all of these reactions into a single frame and image.”

Brenda Murphy | Flora, Fauna, & Fantasy
Mixed-media illustrations
May 4–June 30

Flora & Fauna

Flora & Fauna

“I’ve experimented with a variety of media and design styles over the years and also freelanced as a muralist and decorative painter of faux finishes, trompe l’oeil, and painted furniture. More recently, I’ve scaled down my work to illustrations of nature, fantasy and whimsy, and anything else that captures my imagination.”

Goodloe Byron | Funhouse Mirrors
Mixed-media paintings
June 22–July 28

The Triumph of Depravity

The Triumph of Depravity

“As an artist, I try to focus on having no overarching mission whatsoever. I am certainly not against one, and the artists I admire most always have a mission of some kind. However, I have found that for me to get anything done, I need to focus on what is immediately at hand for what it is rather than what I would like it to be.”

José Pedreanez | Epiphany Eternal
Acrylic paintings
June 22–July 28

De la Serie, Totems #1 (of the Totems Series #1)

De la Serie, Totems #1 (of the Totems Series #1)

“The reciprocal equilibrium between what is thought and which is observed…creates…a body of technique fused with a venerable admiration of all that is living. …beyond that which is human, beyond the merely experiential: It is focused on the will of the eternal.”
