Keeping Time: Measuring the Immeasurable

with artists Elysia Mann and Joseph Pintz

Opening Reception: Friday, February 5th, 2016 from 6:00-9:00 pm


Upcoming exhibit, Keeping Time: Measuring the Immeasurable brings the work of poet and printmaker Elysia Mann in conversation with ceramic artist and sculptor Joseph Pintz. In "Keeping Time," these two artists observe the moment by counting, stacking, measuring and collecting. Pintz, with an abacus as tall as the human form, reminds us to have presence in our more methodical tasks. Artist | poet Elysia Mann writes, "Slow down, slow down. the word to the letter, the image to the line. These marks are not links are not portals are on paper. Labor imprints a now meant for later."  The work of Pintz and Mann allow us to contemplate the idea of distinct units within the context of undivided spacelessness.

Celebrated Lebanese American essayist, mystical poet and novelist, Kahlil Gibran often describes our attempt to measure the immeasurable as a stalling point in the human condition. He writes in his poem On Time, "You would measure time the measureless and immeasurable....But if in your thought you must measure time into seasons, let each season encircle all the other seasons."

Exhibition run: 2.5.16 to 3.5.16
Eours: Wed & Sat 1-4pm or please call for an appointment
