L’Éparpillage is Jonathan “feral opossum” Mayers’ first exhibition with the gallery. Recent, small- to medium-scale, vibrant paintings depict metaphorical beasts amid meticulously rendered Louisiana landscapes. The mysterious creatures – somewhat wicked, somewhat charming – were born of the artist’s familiarity with Louisiana folklore, and serve to illustrate his opinion pertaining to the reality we live in. The haunting, curious images also address the current fragility of our ecosystem, most specifically the southern region of Louisiana.
ON THE BRINK is Luis Cruz Azaceta’s ninth exhibition with the gallery. The recent works on canvas, which range from kaleidoscopic to austere, present an enigmatic state of affairs, a series of journeys on the edge of order and chaos. Themes of disbalance, dystopia, conflict and passage are boldly rendered in the artist’s distinctive, abstractive style. The paintings reveal Azaceta’s staunch dedication to addressing contemporary issues with his work.
Read More and Eli Hansen are childhood friends who have been collaborating for decades. Just out of high school, they would fill up their trucks with various items and head to an isolated spot outside of town. Alone for the weekend, they’d construct a playground of “junk,” complete with lights and stereos. A few days later they’d clean everything up, erasing any trace of their outpost. Over the years, they’ve reconnected to recreate these weekends and this exhibition is the latest installment. The wrong way home. objectifies experimentation and investigation while juxtaposing inertia with action.

pause is Stephanie Patton’s third solo exhibition with the gallery.

Almost Eudaimonia is Holton Rower’s third exhibition with the gallery and includes his remarkable “cut-away paintings” – highly dimensional works which blur the line between painting and sculpture. Rower has perfected a technique of layering paint onto plywood before carving it away to reveal undulating, amorphous mounds, which collectively are reminiscent of psychedelic, topographic maps.
Sister I’m a Poet marks Tim Hailand’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. The small- to large-scale photographic portraits in the exhibition are a continuation of a body of work developed during a 2012 residency in Giverny, the legendary grounds and gardens of Claude Monet. It was here in his living quarters that Hailand found inspiration in the Toile de Jouy wallpaper, a mid-18th century decorative pattern, typically white or off-white, with a repeated, monochromatic pattern often depicting figures in pastoral scenes.
