Curated by Noah Doely
Via the image-based works of six North American artists, Surface Area explores the idea of surfaces as sites for abstraction and haptic perception; as paradoxical spaces with the capacity to simultaneously reveal and conceal, or to serve as both barriers and entry points. The exhibition emphasizes notions of tactility, dimension, and scale through a range of methods that utilize, hybridize, and evoke both photography and sculpture.

Object, Space, Action is a group show presenting new works by New York based Charles Sommer, Paige Silverman, Francesca Simonite and Rachelle Bussieres.
Each work shown deals with the phenomena that occurs when an artist strips away or ignores imagistic reference, intended use or the expected association, allowing the viewer to examine and question an object’s purpose and existence.
