UPCOMING SHOW: The Work of Julia Sackett

leave a comment »

Opening Reception: Saturday, October 13th, 2012 6pm – 9pm

Artist Statement:

I see photography as a eulogy of memory, with no distinction between fiction and fact. Using photographic images and antique objects, I accentuate the void between my experience and past experience with acrylic transfers and casting methods. Taking slides of other people’s memories and distorting them over a space raises questions about the seemingly cozy sentimentality of memory and takes nostalgia to a different, more uncanny plane. These histories are inevitably fiction, as the photographic moment exists outside of living time.  Everyone experiences the poignancy of passing time, even when the forgotten moments aren’t even their own.


The exhibition runs October 13th, 2012 – December 1st, 2012

Gallery Hours: Monday – Sunday 12pm – 8pm


UPCOMING SHOW: “The Major Arcana: Work by Karyn Crisis”

leave a comment »

Opening Reception: Saturday, October 1st, 2011 6pm – 9pm

Artist Bio:

Karyn began oil painting in 2006, after leaving her touring band of 13 years, Crisis.  She has been obsessed with the idea of “inner demon/darkness” as a power source, and with facing it as a process of self-acceptance en route to enlightenment; the inner demon and its role as teacher and guide to empowerment via self-knowledge, forgiveness, and unity for a higher good.

Karyn sees light in dark places.

She has chosen to express, through her art, this dark side, the power within it, and the controversial beauty therein.  She uses archetypes in her paintings and drawings, whose power and beauty have universally been both admired and feared, and whose images have been molded into harmless, quiet, passive or evil symbols, despite their terrifying and benevolent truths: Angels, Witches, and Mythological Women.  Karyn also incorporates her first-hand experience with these beings as a Medium, Clairvoyant, and Seer.

The exhibition runs October 1st, 2011 – November 1st, 2011

Gallery Hours: Monday – Sunday 12pm – 8pm
