New Works: Collaborating With Disorder

Karen Graber
June 7–30, 2018  in the West Gallery “Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art."   -Andy Warhol Surprise is inherent in Karen Graber’s work. Collaborating with disorder means trying not to control the use of materials, but rather to shake hands with the unknown, and always to remain curious. Loving the creative and physical process of painting, of being in the studio with all the possibilities, this is what it is all about: the ... Read More

Portraits in Time

Dorothy Anderson Wasserman
June 7-30, 2018
This is an exhibition of photo collage portraits; surrealistic in nature owing to the fluidity of the medium when exploring the illusive element of time. Wasserman takes all the photographs used in her work and assembles them by hand. The physicality of this method is closely connected with the history of collage ­making. The cutting, pasting, and assembly creates a rough, engaging surface. As a final step, the benefits of technology are utilized by digitizing the collage and printing it on rag paper, using pigmented inks. This helps to unify the differing surfaces and ... Read More

An Abstract Self Portrait

Yael Zahavy-Mittlelman
April 5 - 28, 2018 Exhibition Statement:  Every image we form, every story we tell is a part of our self portrait. We are built like a jigsaw puzzle of stories, ideas and thoughts. We show ourselves fully at any given moment. We think we can hide our flaws, tell beautiful stories about ourselves to hide the truth. In truth, we can never hide our essence, our energy, our true flow. Growing up and maturing, is a process of self exploration. It brings big questions: Who am I? What is my role in the world around me? What ... Read More
