Opening Reception on Friday, July 15th // 6-9PM
Closing Reception on Saturday, July 16th // 6-9PM

Surfaces is the coming together of young artists who experiment with a multitude of materials to explore and express cultural differences, dichotomies, ontological relationships, space, and the phenomenological. As Jean Dubuffet said, "Each material has its own language, and is a language."

In this exhibit you will encounter surfaces that explore conflicting modes of understanding and knowledge within colonialism and blur the boundaries of craft in exploration of gendered labor. Witness painterly surfaces that explore uncertainty, chance, and gesture and those that use the uncertainty of light to create analogue experience poised as obsolescence. Contemplate surfaces created using traditional and nontraditional material languages which strike parallels between the material world and the psychological realm as well as implied surfaces that investigate light, space, and the body's relationship to real and virtual spaces and materials.

Surfaces features artists Charity Algarme, Kelly Eginton, Andrew Frausto, Nicole Gonzalez, Victoria Iungerich, Amy Mackay, Julie PhamVu, Maya Vanderschuit, and Chantal Wnuk.

Light refreshments, music, and a chance to meet the artists during reception.
