Reception with the Artists: Friday, January 25, 2019, 6 - 8 p.m.
Pastel color palettes, uncommon vantage points, and attention to detail are the common threads between the paintings of Autumn Rose and Barbara Kemp Cowlin. Autumn Rose's varied line weights and flat perspectives transform her paintings of desert botanical still lives into airy abstractions, creating a peaceful plenitude in her otherworldly canvasses. Barbara Kemp Cowlin finds underappreciated details in the corners of domestic and public architecture, creating Spartan, angular compositions that feel simultaneously new and familiar. Together, both artists' distinctive points of view remind viewers that whether we are looking at abundance or scarcity, there is more to be seen if we only look harder.Find out more

Reception with the Artists: Friday, March 8, 6 - 8 p.m.
Painstaking attention to detail, ornate organic curves, and meditative studio practices unite the works of Dani Godreau and Vivienne Lux in the exhibition Meticulously Maximal. Godreau’s crowded, repetitive, cut paper patterns become challenges to gendered labor expectations upon closer inspection, and Lux’s bright, hand-drawn swirls that may first appear as simple colorful designs reveal layers of rococo-styled typography with careful examination. The exhibition will feature papercuts by Godreau and drawings and fashions by Lux, all equally mesmerizing to viewers both new and familiar to these artists’ practice.

Opening Reception with the Artists:Saturday, April 6, 6 - 8 p.m.
TOGETHER features artworks by photographer Kari Wehrs and sculptor Nathaniel Lewis, exhibiting alongside one another for the first time. Wehrs’s series “Shot” is comprised of tintype photographs of recreational shooters she meets in the Arizona desert. Nathaniel Lewis’s sculptures examine divisive political topics and concepts of otherness with a tongue-in-cheek humor. Presented side by side, these artists’ work force us to examine the boundaries, some natural, some fabricated, between “us” and “them.”
