Screen | Loretta Park | Recent Animations

January 24 - June 12

Questioning when a work is finished, Loretta Park’s animated pieces reside in a  constant state of flux, made of various lines, shapes, and lengths. Although the forms do not depict any specific ideas or items, the work is embedded with a sense of figure and passage of time. Moving drawings are created by combining photographic images, marks, and colors--the small visual elements accumulate and turn into complex, animated structures. These densely detailed structures move continuously at varying speeds, becoming both…

Piper Cub

Mark Wethli | Piper Cub

February 11 - May 14

Who can do anything better than this propeller?

David Driskell | Renewal and Form

February 11 - June 4

“Religion and ritual and the mythic are concerns I have always nurtured in my art.” – David Driskell Boldly drawn and richly patterned, David Driskell’s imagery in his prints, as in his collages and mixed media work, derives from his childhood experiences growing up in the rural South, his deep love for the Maine landscape, and his in-depth knowledge of and appreciation for African art and textiles. Presented in this exhibition are selected examples of the artist’s recent woodcuts, serigraphs,…

Parts of speech are metaphors, because the whole of nature is a metaphor of the human mind.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson The first full-scale retrospective of the work of artist Sam Cady, this exhibition presents a broad selection of the artist’s emblematic shaped and rectangular paintings created over four decades, as well as a sampling of drawings, studies, and recent “fragments,” painted abstractions culled from the remainders of the shaped canvases. Ever tuned to seeing aesthetic possibility in…
