Spirit in the Dark is Douglas Bourgeois’ ninth exhibition with the gallery. The title of the exhibition is taken from the 1970 gospel-tinged soul song by Aretha Franklin. Bourgeois’ long-established inspirations include Deep Soul and Gospel music, primitive rock and roll, vernacular religious imagery, and discarded paper ephemera.
The Queen of Mirth represents the mother of all things creative, bearing an interdisciplinary exhibition based on the new romantic notion that art should be entertaining and challenging, and that which is amusing has as much potential to effect change as that which is political. From the viewpoint of two young children – a twin boy and girl – the gallery transforms into a kind of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ surrealism.
Troy Dugas is renowned for his meticulously created mandala-like compositions from shredded labels, as well as more recent works incorporating additional media to form portraits and compelling still life compositions. Balancing Act, the artist’s fifth exhibition with the gallery, refers to an attempt to balance representation and abstraction.
“Entangled” is Brian Guidry’s first exhibition with the gallery and features three large-scale paintings with reoccurring themes of technology and the manipulation of nature. Guidry synthesizes color, sound and texture to create “digitized” or “dissolved landscapes,” which range visually from compressed lines of color to abstract eruptions.
Crossing is Ralph Bourque’s first exhibition with the gallery and includes four large-scale ink drawings on paper. The meticulous landscape chronicles represent the passing of a day – loosely referencing dawn, noon, dusk and midnight, which the artist likens to the cycle of artistic creation.
Sensitivity Training is Stephanie Patton’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery. Themes of mental and physical health, healing, comfort, and self-preservation are maintained in the new works, which include medium- to large-scale sculptural text constructions, padded vinyl wall pieces, and video.
