OPENING RECEPTION
Saturday, June 13
2-5pm
The six works in this exhibition take their starting points and titles from Joni Mitchell's 1976 album Hejira, delving deeply into themes of love, loss, restlessness and progress. The concept of hejira, loaded with all the necessity and trauma of progress, and the freeing potential that possibly comes with the realities of the future, is the subject these works. While this body continues Prouty’s exploration of the alluring power of surface and color, Deuces + Dunces marks a new shift in the work's focus, shining a narrower spotlight on a more somber set of objects. Rather than playful assemblage, viewers are greeted by a single 'character' on a stage. A simple yet reflectively glittery horizon/frame creates a landscape within which an object is suspended in space, time, emotion and reference.

OPENING RECEPTION

Saturday, June 13

2-5pm

Ephemeral Structures presents several distinct bodies of work coexisting in lively conversation. Central to the show are Burr’s airy, knot-like structures, like monochromatic line drawings in space, reminiscent of cell clusters or microscopic crystalline forms. Glazed in rich color and texture and retaining a strong touch of the hand, these sculptures capture a sense of fleeting beauty, like objects on the verge of collapse.
