This event has ended.

Thomas McAnulty’s first solo show at the gallery will feature works in a variety of media and techniques, including sculpture, relief, drawing and painting. McAnulty’s interest in the act of looking, particularly at simple and everyday objects, and the desire to clarify the subtle and complex relationship between that which we habitually overlook yet with which we are deeply connected, unifies the divergent media into a consistent reflection on the epic and the everyday. Emphasizing the archetypal qualities of his subjects, whether a larger than life plaster chair or a masterful charcoal drawing of a simple table, the viewer is led to reconsider the beauty and importance of the objects so often overlooked or dismissed.

In Hedy O’Beil’s show will feature some of most recent paintings. Her gestural abstraction and unique signature palette that makes adroit use of rich pinks, blues, and yellows layered in perfect harmony with ethereal grays and translucent whites, seamlessly integrate movement and energy with soothing color and layering. Her work is a study in the tension between control and unbridled exuberance, as if watching an improvised jazz masterpiece unfold before your eyes.

On the Wall, the Gallery’s ongoing and rotating public art installation, will feature Carter Burden Gallery veteran David Cerulli. Cerulli will be creating a unique site-specific installation using the existing lighting in the hallway and its resulting shadows on objects temporarily placed in the space to create light and shadow drawings. The resulting renderings of the light and shadow that previously existed on the walls echo the shape and form of the objects and light formerly occupying the space.
