Spatial Relations

October 1, 2021 - January 9, 2022

This exhibition brings together recent sculptures by Elizabeth Atterbury, Gordon Hall, and Anna Hepler. Each piece engages the architecture directly, touching the floor and walls– leaning, resting, standing, draping. Ranging from re-creations of recognizable things to abstract forms, these sculptures interrogate the potential for objects to affect us emotionally, socially, and physically. Each working within their own purview, these three artists share a commitment to creating spare works with simple materials including wood, ceramic, metal, concrete, cardboard, and paper. Each…

Ryan Adams | Lessons

October 1, 2021 - January 9, 2022

The Portland-based artist Ryan Adams premiers a 33-foot-long mural continuing his abstracted, text-based wall works that grew out of his early graffiti practice. The mural features a phrase of advice his mother often gave him as a youth growing up in Portland– advice to help him negotiate his youth in a predominantly white community. Adams' mural is rendered in his signature ‘gem’ style that deconstructs words and phrases into geometric patterns that dynamically display visual depth, shadows, and highlights. The…

Into Action

October 1, 2021 - January 9, 2022

This thematic exhibition features photographic works set in nature that document actions as they naturally occurred; actions as they were performed for the camera; interactions created in post-production; or to propose actions to be taken by the viewer. 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. Into Action is made possible in part by a grant from the Andy…

Hiraki Sawa | Absent

October 1, 2021 - January 9, 2022

This solo exhibition presents the internationally acclaimed video artist Hiraki Sawa’s most recent single-channel video, Absent (2018). Absent (running time 4:27 minutes) presents an intimate, imaginative space populated by a fantastic parade of surreal creatures—a walking tea kettle, a dancing cup, a flying spoon—all of them traveling between grand and intimate landscapes. Hiraki Sawa (born 1977, Ishikawa, Japan) received a BFA from the University of East London and an MFA from the Slade School of Art at University College, London.  His work…

ArtLab | Open Studio

October 1, 2021 - January 9, 2022

Open Studios |  All Ages | Drop in | Friday - Sunday October – December Ryan Adams | Lessons Artist Ryan Adams deconstructs words and phrases into geometric patterns that display visual depth, shadows, and highlights. These phrases represent important aspects of Adams’s life, like the advice his mother often gave him as a youth to help him navigate a predominantly white community. His combined use of text and geometry urges viewers to consider their voices and visualize their words.…

Protected: 2021 Fall Exhibitions | Education

Gordon Hall, Elizabeth Atterbury, Anna Hepler | Spacial Relations This 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…
