Screen | Erin Dorney | Question the Body

March 7 - September 20

QUESTION THE BODY is a collection of photographs and time-lapse videos where gathered natural objects obscure pages from “The Question and Answer Book About The Human Body” by Ann McGovern (Random House, 1965). Through recorded erasure/redaction, each poem is built by the disembodied hands of the artist. The unobscured text reveals inquiries into physical form, preference, expression, and function. By emphasizing process over product, QUESTION THE BODY blurs the boundaries between writing, visual art, appropriation, performance, and assemblage. Works in…

Skirting the Line | Painting Between Abstraction and Representation

March 14 - September 20

Skirting the Line presents the work of five contemporary painters whose work hovers on the line between abstraction and representation.

Erin Johnson | UNNAMED FOR DECADES

March 21 - September 20

The title of the exhibition is drawn from a text about Solanum plastisexum - an Australian bush tomato whose sexual expression has confounded scientists and…

[ON]now Exhibition | Lush, hush

May 15 - August 15

Guest Juror: Donna McNeil, Executive Director, Ellis-Beauregard Foundation, Rockland, ME   Jurors' Statement: Ranging from lavish and complexly layered renderings to the starkly reductive, Lush, hush puts forward the notion that these two seemingly opposing approaches can juxtapose to heighten the effect of the other. Viewed together via thumbnail, individually or as small groups randomly placed together by the alphabet to fit on a screen, the assembled body of work reads as quiet, fearless abundance. I was struck by the thoughtfulness…
