UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS

Daniel Buckingham: Secret Invitation

May 10, 2014 - August 10, 2014

 

Buckingham’s triple arch pavilion, Secret Invitation is informed by an 8-year bicycle trip the artist took around the world. Immersed in the history of the Silk Road, which facilitated the transmission of goods, ideas, culture, and religion, Buckingham’s social sculpture is intended to serve as a space to meet people from our community, share stories and even, as the artist suggests, fall in love. Daniel Buckingham: Secret Invitation is part of The Edge of Art Series.

Sarah McCoubrey: Works on Paper

May 10, 2014 - August 24, 2014

McCoubrey takes on the role of alchemist through her transmutation of the potato into mystical contraptions built to coast above the earth or journey along the desolate landscape. These delicately drawn mixed media works belong to a world of myths and fairytales and bring to mind artists, such as Hieronymous Bosch and Salvador Dali. Sarah McCoubrey: Works on Paper is part of the 2014 Edge of Art Series.

Shadows: Fernando Orellana

September 20, 2014 - January 11, 2015

The interactive artworks found in Shadows are designed to be used posthumously. Inspired by paranormal research, spiritualism, and ghost folklore, these machines continuously search for the dead, attempting to allow the departed continued use of their worldly possessions. Extracted from recent estate sales, the personal objects found in these techno-effigies are in a constant state of potential energy, awaiting their owner’s return. By monitoring sudden fluctuations in temperature, infrared, and electromagnetic readings, the machines try to open a channel or doorway into the neither world. By this, each machine gives the dead an opportunity or proxy to continue interacting in this world and the next.
