Exhibitions

Luis Cruz Azaceta

Luis Cruz Azaceta began the series “Shifting States” about a year ago in response to the rapid state of change occurring in the world at large. Amid climatic change, collapsing economies, greed, war and revolution, individual citizens are rising against political, economic and social injustices. In this, Azaceta finds courage, faith and innovation mapping a new terrain. He confronts this process of shift in his work, which reflects his signature bright colored abstraction and figuration.

Various Artists

Aspects of a New Kind of Realism is curated by Michael Klein. The curator believes realism continues to play a crucial part in painting today, but it is now augmented by an emphasis on the process with which the paintings are made. He feels that for many artists, including those in the group exhibition, there is a quite conscious choice of content that reflects more than just a still life or portrait; that their ambition is to “present through painting ideas that suggest and suppose and present painting as a means by which questions can be raised and observations made about and for a contemporary audience.” Read More

Ted Kincaid

Ted Kincaid’s work explores the fusion of multiple artistic media, including painting and photography. His digital images embrace qualities and challenge traditions of each, resulting in paintings informed by photography and photography influenced by painting. Read More

Dale Chihuly

The White series showcases seasoned master Dale Chihuly’s relentless pursuit to expand his highly original language of glass. As one of the greatest colorists in the history of the medium, his genius includes the application of colors in different sequences, mixing opaque with transparent, thus manipulating light as it travels through the glass.

Dave Greber

Dave Greber believes that the conscious exploration of our own personal cosmic DNA through art unearths all sorts of seemingly unassociated pieces of ideas. He feels that making new work is an archeology of the sub-conscious—it turns up fragments of broken ceramics and jaw bones, and the scientist receives the gifts the soil has offered and pieces them together to discover a “new dinosaur.” Read More

James Drake

Drake’s recent "White Cut-Outs" are studies in composition and subtraction. The artist creates them by cutting the paper with an X-Acto blade. The elegant works are the product of complicated fabrication and technical expertise. Their impact is related to both the shadows they cast and their drawn line. The tone of Drake’s “Red Drawings” is complicated and political. The intensity and saturation of red chalk infuses the drawings with a different line and character. Read More

Richard Baker

In recent years Brooklyn-based still-life artist Richard Baker has painted true to size interpretations of vintage paperback book covers, particularly classic covers from the 1950s through the 1970s including literary luminaries such as Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote and William Faulkner. More recently, Baker has also begun painting classic record album covers. Read More

John Waters

Using an insider's bag of tricks and trade lingo, Waters celebrates the excess of the movie industry. Word and image play permeate Waters' work, and the movie industry and its various sleights of hand are a common target. Always ambitious and playful, some of the works are condensed narratives or "little movies” as Waters calls them. Read More

W. Steve Rucker

Steve Rucker’s “Focus Group,” a ceramic and mixed media installation references the billions of dollars spent on advertising the varied products, including medications and even wars, which are initially shown to focus groups in order to refine marketing strategies. Read More
