poster for "Intersections" Exhibitions

This event has ended.

Corey D'Augustine's work examines the intersection of formalism and everyday life. Social and economic inequality is endemic and a function of social systems that consistently reward greed. For D'Augustine art is a model for a personal withdrawal from these systems to maintain a positive influence on the people and environment around us. This model aims to erase preconceived distinctions in favor of the direct experience of materials and their formal qualities. Marsha Melnick's recent paintings occupy a terrain that navigates between figuration and abstraction. In her response to the natural world, color, composition, gesture, and mark-making play supporting roles in the intuitively orchestrated development of her work. Real and invented landscape elements intertwine and provide a jumping-off point for the artist's deeper exploration of imagery. With raw materials, Gar Wang's wall sculptures reflect her passion for animals and a lifestyle closely entwined with nature. She works with silk, bamboo, hemp, as well as wool from rabbit, sheep, goat, dog, alpaca, and camel combining these soft materials with stainless steel, wood, metal and clay. By contrasting these raw materials she brings out their inherent characteristics as she explores their texture, form and light.
