This event has ended.

During July and August the George Adams Gallery will present in the Side Gallery an exhibition titled The Horse is in the Cart with works by Robert Arneson, Bruce Conner, Jane Dickson, Robert The, John Waters and Martha Wilson. This exhibition highlights each artist’s ability to find meaning in the slightly absurd, the rather mundane, as well as the perfectly obvious. These artists approach to subject matter appears to be that the more straightforward it is, the more promise it holds. They can pinpoint formal and telling details that most observers would find of little interest. Yet in their hands these little bits of almost trivia, become elevated artifacts, filled with meaning in and of themselves. Some examples undertaken are a composition of crossed off daily to-do lists, a woman’s pursed lips and coiffed hair, a deep gaze, repurposed second-hand books, a projectionist’s changeover marks, and impressions of hands and feet in clay.
