Collide of Scope: Paintings by James Stephen Terrell
Springing from a wide array of influences, including quilt design, stained glass techniques and Joseph Albers’ color blocking, James Stephen Terrell’s dynamic and colorful paintings project energy and life. Moving between abstraction and realism, electric color interactions and geometric patterning, Terrell’s aim is to contemplate and document our humanity in these singularly turbulent times.
Where Do We Go From Here: New Paintings by Matt Pinney
This recent body of work depicts the artist’s progression and growth throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Beginning with large, evocative paintings about isolation and escape, Matt Pinney moves to smaller, faster works as a way of “reaching deeper to find a more lasting connection to my place in the world and the experiences that transcend the pandemic”.
Labor and Leisure: Lightboxes by Melanie Kehoss
Melanie Kehoss creates astoundingly detailed lightboxes that tap into historical narratives to explore the origins of cultural phenomena. Specifically, the works in this exhibit depict snapshots from activities that began as work and evolved into recreation. Illuminated and each encompassing their own discrete environment, these intricately composed worlds draw the viewer deep inside, offering a chance to experience the past in a new light.
