Free to the public; mask required
Join us in-person on Saturday, October 2nd for an opening reception from 4:00 – 6:00pm for our 2021 Fall Exhibitions. Visit with the featured artists and enjoy the first looks of the exhibits.
Lessons , a mural painted by Ryan Adams, will be produced in his signature ‘gem’ style that deconstructs words and phrases into geometric patterns that dynamic display visual depth, shadows and highlights. The mural will be accompanied by wider selection of the artist’s paintings on canvas. The entire exhibition will be visible 24/7 over the fall and winter months through CMCA’s massive windows facing our public courtyard.
Spatial Relations is a three-person exhibition will present sculptures by Elizabeth Atterbury, Gordon Hall and Anna Hepler, that were created to rest directly on the floor or gallery walls. The artists each employ spare, sometimes repetitive forms displaying a visibly direct use of materials (wood, ceramic, metal, concrete). The exhibition title alludes to each artists’ exceptional use of volume, scale and surface in each of their works and to the charged negative space that will exist between them. The exhibition will be installed much like an indoor sculpture garden, with each artist contributing multiple sculptures.
Into Action will feature works in photography that capture actions taken in nature as they occurred, were staged for the camera, or created in post-production. The exhibition will feature installation-based works by Cig Harvey, Shoshannah White, and Julie Poitras Santos along with more traditionally formatted works by Jennifer Calivas, Mark Dorf, and Ray Ewing.
Absent a single channel video projection, by filmmaker Hiraki Sawa presents an intimate, fictive space populated by a fantastic parade of surreal pseudo-domestic “creatures”—a perambulatory tea kettle, a dancing cup, a flying spoon—all of them traveling between spaces and locations that are difficult to define.
These exhibitions are made possible in part by a grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
