New Age Nostalgia by Vitus Shell features large scale paintings of the black experience- giving agency to people from this community through powerful images deconstructing, sampling, and remixing identity, civil rights, and contemporary black culture. 

“Using hip-hop lyrics as the basis of my work, I refer to the musical references to create visual icons in my work. With strong ties existing among the history of rhythm and blues, reggae, and blues music, I depict the social conditions that are apparent in these musical forms and reproduce the images in my own work. In the past, I have often had a problem with art that is too conceptual; however, with the use of the figures, my work becomes accessible to audiences on all levels.”  –Vitus Shell

Full Spectrum: Paintings by Chris Heidman and Lauren Krukowski

Exhibition Runs: September 26 - October 25, 2020

Sometimes we need a quiet space, a moment to reflect on the contours of our existence in the form of color and light. Full Spectrum is a combination of paintings by Chris Heidman and Lauren Krukowski that reflect on that space. 

Exhibition Runs: September 26 - October 25, 2020

Christopher Selleck's exhibit "Plates" is a portrait series of body builders and a small selection of cast ceramic weight plates.  This series is an exploration of the rigid definitions of masculinity through a lens of feminism, race and queer theory that reveal the stagnation of this outmoded form of representation.

For the last seven years Rachel Breen’s work has examined the labor rights of garment workers, a nexus for many challenges of capitalism- globalization, climate crisis, racism, and labor abuse. The Shapes We Take is yet another chapter in Breen’s commitment to making visible, systems that are hard to comprehend and deeply entrenched. And this is a critical time to address the way multinational brands privilege profit over human rights and inform American consumers about our complicity in the way garment workers are treated.

Nathanael Flink is reckless, at least in process when creating his paintings and sculptures. His intent is to defy expectations, inviting the viewer to question the validity of the frame, both in its physical and metaphorical context. Uff Da Gestalt is all about the surfaces without carefully defined corners.
