This event has ended.

The show, comprised of drawings, prints, and sculpture of various mediums relays an incredible balance of styles and process, that when combined simply take ahold. Absorbing the viewers into the compelling visions these two have portrayed.

Richie Lasansky

Born in La Paz, Bolivia, while his parents were in the peace corps, Lasansky’s interest in drawing and art stems from an age when he could first hold a pencil. His parents being music and dance performers, he traveled around with them, constantly drawing everything he saw. For a while he thought his interest in animals would lead him to a career in science. After graduation from Hebron Academy, he studied biology at Brandeis University in Waltham, Mass., but upon graduation, moved to Iowa to study printmaking formally with his grandfather – Mauricio Lasansky. He spent eight years in this apprenticeship.

Allison Read Smith

Allison Read Smith was born and raised in Memphis, TN and has lived and worked in NYC for the past twelve years.
Merging Southern storytelling with the more brisk pace of New York she has generated a body of work that uses pedestrian materials, such as newspaper, magazines, postal stamps, cardboard, and rubber. For this exhibition she relies mainly on roofing rubber to generate a cartoonish, malleable dark humor. Her work has an intoxicating effect as the imagery she puts forth draw so many questions for the viewer. Asking what is really relevant and meaningful in our day to day lives. As a sculptor she combines many different elements into three dimensional creations of skewed beauty and wondrous theory. Pushing past the antiquated confines of sculptural work and into her own realm of an almost intangible essence.
