The Dream Deferred
August 24-September 18, 2020
by Tad Gloekler
Sept. 24-Oct. 20, 2020
This exhibition considers the deceptive impact of an individual’s existence. Transformation of unassuming furniture to complex assemblage; simultaneously relates to deteriorating natural systems, and confronts fundamental assumptions of comfort and contemporary lifestyle.
by Sarah West
Oct. 29-Nov. 25, 2020
The word syzygy refers to an alignment, often of the celestial variety. In her paintings, Sarah West creates a cosmos of symbols sacred and domestic, ancient and contemporary, corporeal and digital. The fragmentary nature and floating aspect of these forms creates new narratives, alternately diaristic and global. At the heart of her work is an interest in transformation and desire.
