[ON]now Exhibition | Simulacrush

December 14, 2019 - April 30, 2020

Guest Jurors: Justine Kablack, Izabel Nielsen, and Anna Queen of SISTERED (Portland, ME) Jurors' Statement Simulacrush features eighteen artists meditating on states of reality across media.

Screen | Erin Dorney | Question the Body

March 7 - June 7

*Exhibition extended, dates TBD* 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).

Each reinvigorates painting today through energetic personal expression. Artists included in the exhibition…

ArtLab | Open Studio | At Home Activity

March 14 - April 30

Project for All Ages Skirting the Line Tracy Miller & Hannah Secord Wade Artist Tracy Miller’s food fantasies take still life painting to another dimension. Her work incorporates bold colors and thick slices of cake, leading the viewer to search for more comforts. Hannah Secord Wade’s abstract landscapes containing food, object, and debris covered by snow, sand, or cloud lift the initial weight of the composition from afar. However, the use of layering her paint and brush stroke density encourages…

*Exhibition extended, dates TBD* Spanning two galleries, Unnamed for Decades - an exhibition by Erin Johnson (b. 1985) - presents a series of new site-specific installations that incorporate videos, sculptures, and photographs.
