Through March 12
Mike Shaffer: Towers, Memorials, Monuments.Sculptures and paintings that incorporate the artist’s career-long fascination with grid-patterning and perpendicular stacking techniques, created by the artist beginning in the early 1970s to the present. This exhibition highlights Shaffer’s inventive combination of styles of Minimalism, Pop and Conceptual art and rooted in an empirical scientific method. Curated by Bobby Donovan.
Julie Wolfe: Quest for Third Paradise. What if we could better understand our own human social systems—And what if we could appreciate the infinitely more complex systems that thrive in our natural world? Perhaps we, as humans, could then see how we fit into a larger universal system housed by nature: an ecological world in which our relationship to nature is not adversarial, but one of peaceful coexistence.
New Ruins. Curated by Danielle Mysliwiec and Natalie Campbell. New Ruins explores the tactile, perceptual, and temporal dimensions of surface and form among a resonant grouping of abstract works. Physical processes such as rubbing, layering, building, wearing away and, on occasion, obliterating, combine to offer an alternative to the traditional painter’s mark, altering perception of time and presence. Materials such as bronze, marble, plaster, stone, metal, clay and wood are used to expand the language of painting and its traditional viewing modes. New Ruins feature works by N. Dash, Jessica Dickinson, Donald Moffett, Sam Moyer, Nathlie Provosty, and Brie Ruais.
Mehring: Wellspring. Howard Mehring was a leading figure in the Washington Color School – a group of Color Movement painters including Morris Louis, Kenneth Noland, Gene Davis, Thomas Downing, and Paul Reed. This exhibition serves as a collection of Mehring’s Color School paintings.
