Reese Gallery: Friday, 23 June 2017

Blues for Jim Crow

Please join for the upcoming solo exhibition Blues for Jim Crow, experimental photographer, John K. Blair, explores how historic anti-black laws have evolved into policies that define the systemic racism of today. By layering contemporary photographic portraits over and through scenes documenting violence and terror against people of color, Blair voices a very palpable fear. Questioning the direction forward, Blair's kaleidoscopic compositions, remind one of a compass seeking a metaphorical North in today's social climate. His photographic flashbacks suggest how the history of racial oppression continues to have a psychological and multi generational impact today. Many of these images are quite beautiful and all of them are powerful. However, some are terrifyingly brutal, and therefore may not be suitable for young children.

There will be light refreshments and this event is free and open to the public.

Duane Reed Gallery: Thursday, 8 June 2017

David Fratu, Celestial Divide, acrylic on wood,  48x48"

Portals & Dimensions
a group exhibition
curated by Ethan Meyer
June 8th — August 5th, 2017
Opening Reception THURSDAY, June 8th 5:00 — 8:00 PM

Present day reality offers the artist new inspirations, fears, and existential conflicts.  Faced with a rapidly expanding and all encompassing technological evolution and a level of interconnectivity never before experienced in human history, the aesthetic of this show represents what I view as a Contemporary Futurist movement; informed also by the history of Maximalism and Abstract Expressionism.  The Artist is in a particularly interesting position to react and resist the nihilism that comes from abandoning our biology for a purely technocentric model of viewing reality, or to integrate and transcend the dichotomy of nature verses artificial intelligence.

Francesco Lo Castro, David Fratu, Benjamin Lawder, and Greg Pettit are all on the cutting edge of this philosophical and aesthetic unfolding and discovery.  Exploring and reacting to this new reality with their own visual repertoires; they are the visionaries and pioneers of our collective future
