Exhibitions

Bruce Davenport, Jr.

The four large-scale works in this exhibition are tributes to renowned heavyweight boxer champion Muhammad Ali. Each vivid color marker drawing, rendered in the artist’s celebrated style, is a variation of a common composition – an aerial view of a boxing match. Bordering this narrative are snapshots of Ali in action, along with memorable quotes such as, “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee." Customary in Davenport, Jr.’s works are the scrawlings of his personal thoughts and observations – scattered throughout in pockets of quiet spaces. Read More

Willie Birch

Willie Birch has always been a storyteller, sharing with us his observations of everyday objects and imagery that have had a direct impact on him, and subtly extracting the patterns and symbology inherent within. Recently, the artist has begun to specifically examine the interconnections between the examined elements and how, when coupled together, the initial meanings expand and create yet another layer – a language both seen and unseen.

Gordon Parks

Muhammad Ali was one of the most photographed figures of the 20th century. Well known are the images of the braggart, the charmer, the ferocious fighter, however this exhibition of nine medium-scale photographs by Gordon Parks captures a softer side of the boxer – relaxed and introspective – further revealing Parks’ ability to connect with the people he photographed and the implicit trust between subject and photographer.

Lin Emery

This exhibition of new kinetic sculptures by Lin Emery features large-scale and pedestal works, as well as two suspended works. The elements in the sculptures continue to be derived from nature and adopt natural elements such as wind to set them in motion. The two suspended works – one ceiling- and the other wall-mounted – are motorized. This is the artist’s tenth exhibition with the gallery. Read More

Frederick J. Brown

This exhibition features seven medium-scale works on canvas and paper painted between 2001-2010, two years before the artist’s death. The colorful works are all portraits ranging from anonymous subjects to the revered Billie Holiday and Louis Armstrong. Each work reveals the artist’s unique interpretations of the human face, evoking the work of artists such as Pablo Picasso and Max Beckmann. Read More

Erwin Redl

Random Precision in the Metric of Time presents a new body of work that reveals unexpected variances through time-based media and processes. Manifestations of rhythmic arrangements are explored using various media, either through movement or layers of materials accumulated over time. Read More

Courtney Egan

Circulation of Light features three distinct projection-based works, which meld technology with nature. Crystal Gazers features groupings of cast glass medallions infused with light from a single channel projection cascading from forged metal branches. Fountain is a wall-mounted collection of cast glass “bottles” with projected water spilling from one to the next. Finally, Sleepwalker is a motion-activated video projection offering the viewer the experience of witnessing the budding and then contraction of a single bloom. Read More

Dawn DeDeaux

This exhibition features selections from Dawn DeDeaux’s MotherShip series. The post-apocalyptic works, filled with nostalgia for a nature lost, collectively consider the conditions and consequences of alienation from the natural world. Read More
