Becca Day: The Edge of Ourselves
For this exhibit I explored themes of the edges of ourselves—our visible, corporeal edges and invisible, social-emotional edges.
At various times in life, we are soft or hard edged (and both simultaneously)—both can be useful for connection and protection. Both can work against us at times. No matter how much we try to control our edges we are permeable.
Calaya Amparo: A World of Manifestations
I find inspiration from the motion of gravity, falling water, the texture of rock faces and wide trees, horizon lines, motion of trees, the energy between two figures… I welcome viewers to see and feel whatever comes up when spending time with the work.
Melissa Porter: Side Show
Melissa’s work is reflective of her life experiences and showcases her affinity for symbolism.
Found treasures such as vintage clock cases, cigar boxes and photographs add their own character to the intimate story she narrates.
Through her creative process, Melissa explores the concepts of permanence, boundaries, value, and connection.
Michelle McMahan: Substrate
The word substrate is formed from the Latin prefix sub, which means “an underlying position,” plus the word stratu, which, in geology, means “each of the sedimentary layers of the earth.”
In philosophy, substrate refers to that which forms the essential part of being; that is, the foundation on which a person’s essence and attributes rest.
Sam Ken: The Art of Healing
This collection of work demonstrates how art has the power to heal, and is meant to give hope to those who may also be going through something, whether a physical injury, a difficult time, or anything in between.
Shared joy and shared pain are key elements to connecting with another human being.
