Flower Matrix. Claudia Hart

September 17, 2018 @ 9:00 am - October 27, 2018 @ 9:00 pm

Hart’s decorative patterns are in fact also computer codes – augmented “tags” functioning like QR – that permit users to see her fantastical animations embedded in them through Hart’s Looking Glass augmented app. Through the Looking Glass, one can glimpse a world of pulsing invisible flowers covered with animated graphics culled from Internet signage, computer code, and emoji graphics. Programmed by the artist, her multimedia craft objects are metaphors that unfold, using computer-vision to reveal “magical” layers of new information.…

Brett Kern. Won’t Get Fooled Again

September 28, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - October 20, 2018 @ 9:00 pm

“Something has survived,” reads the tagline for the 1997 movie, Jurassic Park: The Lost World. Undeniably, something has survived: Brett Kern’s infatuation with the pop culture of his formative years, during the late eighties and the nineties. It continues to be through these “cultural glasses” that he continues to view and interpret the world, which influences the subject matter and purpose of his work. Kern’s predilection for producing collectible objects comes from his training as a potter and persistent preoccupation…

Affectionate Indifference. A Cat-emporary Exhibition

October 26, 2018 @ 9:00 am - December 21, 2018 @ 9:00 pm

Supposedly domesticated, we enjoy them as companions. Cats demand our attention while indicating they couldn’t care less. This exhibition seeks the approval of the cat community, by immortalizing the species through art, but remaining realistic about this probability. Throughout art history, cats have been a beautiful vessel for symbolic meanings, ranging from dark unruly sensuality to perfect domestic tranquility. As early as 2000 BC, cats appeared in Egyptian frescoes. Somewhere in the Middle Ages, the black cat became a symbol…

Jason Needham. New Work

October 26, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - December 21, 2018 @ 9:00 pm

Jason Needham’s new landscape paintings reflect his longstanding interest in impressionism, post-impressionism, and early American modernists like Marsden Hartley. The scenery he selects is familiar: still life or interior compositions taken from his home, forest scenes just off the beaten path, a pocket of woods with an interstate, parking lot, or air-conditioned retreat close at hand. Works in the exhibition were created from a combination of painting and drawing plein air studies along with photographic references. Needham says, “I see…
