Duane Reed: Friday, 23 October 2015

October 23 — December 12, 2015

Opening Reception - Friday, October 23, 5:00 - 8:00 PM
 Duane Reed Gallery is pleased to present the sculptural works of John Garrett. John Garrett was raised in southern New Mexico, influenced by Native American arts and crafts. His intrigue with the tools, systems and materials involved in weaving and other textile constructions were nurtured and developed through courses with Neda Al-Hilali and Marion Stewart. Garrett’s work is an engrossing exploration in tactile intricacies through repetition of form, while simultaneously providing the viewer with a myriad of textures and colors to explore.

Duane Reed Gallery proudly presents the intricate oil paintings of Nancy Newman Rice.  Nancy Newman Rice states about her work:  “In my paintings, the viewer observes but does not enter as the confusion of space is meant for contemplation rather than adventure...My influences...extend to architectural drawings, the girders of anticipated buildings and especially scaffolding that fills those spaces. They are skeletons and place holders which define spatial containment, and are evidence of the sacred geometry that is the armature of empirical experience.” Rice’s work is deeply experiential, utilizing overlaid images that provide the viewer with a hypnotizing perspective; her paintings transcend time as one is able to view progression from conception to finalization as a singular moment.
