Media Matters

  • Foundry Art Centre

Artists choose the materials and processes they work with carefully. Painters use oils, acrylics, or watercolors for specific reasons, as artists in other media choose to work with wood, metal, textiles, clay, etc. to fully express their ideas with intention. This all-media exhibition invites artists to submit artwork that best expresses why they use the media they do. Artwork may be about any theme or subject matter of the artists’ choosing.  The overall intent of this exhibition is to share innovative and exemplary works utilizing an array of processes and materials.

Water

  • Hera Gallery

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday April, 11th 6-9 p.m.

Juror: Dina Deitsch, curator of Contemporary Art at deCordave Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, MA

Water is the medium of life. We are born from water and remain mostly water until we return to dust. Water in dynamic cyclic flow forms 70% of the earth’s surface creating interconnected patterns of life in scaled interrelationships. Civilizations have flourished and evolved by harnessing the flow of water. Water has been essential for economic growth and has become a playground for fun and adventure.  We are inspired by the beauty and sublime nature of water. These days, contemporary water issues are also creating debates over conflicting interests at local and global levels. Concerns over enough clean drinking water, rising sea levels, powerful storms or droughts spurred by what most believe are climate change forces, fracking and energy needs, and transnational controls of water rights are just some of our worries.

This national juried exhibition at Hera Gallery seeks a varied perspective on contemporary views of water as an essential element. Political, social, environmental and aesthetic themes related to water in all media will be considered.

Balance/Unbalance International Conference Exhibition

  • The Night Gallery

OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday March, 26th. 6-9 pm

Drainage is an EcoArt series displaying intricately crafted wood sculptures that both visually and conceptually address many of the key topics presented at the Balance-Unbalance 2015 Conference. Created within this past year, these artworks resonate with deeply rooted references to ecology, biology and sociobiology. The sculptures directly address topics such as water access and sustainability, climate change, environmental awareness and urban growth. The work has been crafted using locally salvage woods and desert foliage as well as reclaimed hardwoods.

 Selected works will be on exhibition at Water, Climate and Place, Re-Imagining Environments at the 2015 Balance/Unbalance International Conference.

The Biophilia Complex – woodwork by Dannon Schroeder

[Bio- (biological life) -philia (denoting fondness)] is the innate affinity of human beings to the nature world.  

The Biophilia Complex is an enticing array of finely crafted wood sculptures that expose the brittle and intimate connections between humankind and the natural world.  These visually stimulating wood carvings mimic biological organisms, emulate manmade objects and infuse their relationship with a deeply rooted reference to anatomy (body), dendrology (tree) and ecology (environment) providing an insight into both the beauty and misfortune of the world we have all created.

Fiasco: The Art of Failure

Fiasco: The Art of Failure

December 6th – 20th, 2013

 

Frontal Lobe Gallery at Bragg’s Pie Factory

1301 Grand Avenue, Ste. 2B, Phoenix, AZ 85007

Opening Reception, Friday, December 6th 2013, 6 -10 PM

 

The exhibition will be open to the public on the first and third Fridays of December from 6:00PM until 10:00PM or by appointment.

According to some sources, the term fiasco was used by Venetian glass artists to refer to a blown-glass bottle, which was for some reason, a failed piece.  These bottles were sometimes kept to illustrate some flaw in form or technique. Sometimes they were thrown into a pile to be melted down to produce the inexpensive straw-covered bottles commonly used for Italian table wine.  Today we use the term to describe a complete and humiliating failure.

 

This will be an exhibition of failed works of art.  Artists will be asked to contribute a piece that they, for whatever reason, feel is a failure.  This is not to say that they are bad works, but rather they simply failed to live up to the hopes or expectations of the maker in some way – technical, conceptual, etc.

 

Failure is a regular, predictable, and we would argue, essential aspect of every artist’s creative practice.  Indeed, giving oneself the permission to fail is essential to the experimentation and risk-taking that allow the work to evolve in exciting and unexpected directions.  Unfortunately, especially for the art student, failures in the studio can feel like personal failures, and can cause the kind of apprehension and anxiety that hinders creative growth.  It is our hope that this exhibition will allow for a conversation about success, failure, and healthy studio practice, and will encourage creative individuals of every stripe to accept, embrace, and learn from the happy (and not so happy) accidents that happen every day.

 

Participating artists include: Elysia Michaelsen, Dannon Schroeder, Yuan Zhou, Swapna Das, Joseph Shetler, Lisa Hoffner, Danielle Godreau, Anthony Pessler, Henry Leo Schoebel, Diana Clauss, Alison Dunn, Samantha Fricano, Ed Kennefick, Dean Reynolds, Shijuan Xu, Joe Holdren, AJ Nafziger, Ellie Honl, Rossitza Todorova, Dan Lam, Shane Smith, Adam Montoya, Colleen Donohoe, Kevin Carin and Brad Konick.
