Piece Work

Piece Work

Exhibit Dates: Monday, November 5 through Friday, December 21, 2018.

Piece Work is a group exhibition featuring five artists who assemble significant paintings, sculptures and installations from a cumulation of smaller parts.  Cordy Ryman (NY) presents meticulously stacked wall sculptures made up of smaller, painted, wood blocks, often cannibalized from past site-specific installations. Dominic Terlizzi’s (Baltimore) elaborate paintings reveal a multitude of cast objects and sculptural practices at work in the surface of his images.  Rachel Hayes (MO) is well-known for her gossamer fabric pieces that function as painting, sculpture and transformative installation.

Do Not Set Yourself On Fire

Steven Dobbin: I Repeat Myself

Exhibit Dates: Tuesday, September, 6 to Sunday, October 8, 2017

I Repeat Myself celebrates the repetition of daily life, Steven Dobbin’s teaching, and his art. As a special education teacher for over 30 years, Steven Dobbin has established repetition and symbols as a way of survival for his students. This philosophy, that repetition is the “mother of all learning,” has informed Dobbin’s aesthetic. Use of the same subject in various mediums—the grids of wood transfers, the glass jars and tins containing symbols, and finally the blinking neon sign—all become a reflection of our memory, and his need for order and predictability.
