Art of Ginger Lai | Jan 19th – Feb 23rd

 
     

Immigrating to America overwhelmed her with the radical possibilities inherent in Western abstraction. She took years to merge the two approaches into her mature style that combines the discipline of Sumi with the ingrained aesthetics of Western abstraction. Lai's synthesis manifests as automatic markings repeating the patterns of her spontaneous application.

Soul Stories: Uniting Spirit and Matter Abstractly
Mar 8th – Apr 12th

 
           
 

Mar 8th | Opening Reception 2-5pm

 

There are several threads uniting these four artists with distinctive approaches to their art. For one, each of those individual working artists possess a work ethic that is both admirable and necessary given the nature of their work. Process - rather than product would underscore their bodies of work. Put simply, it’s all about the work, not the “talk.” I think there is an inherent spirituality in the four artists’ work - something which I consider to be of greater value than religion. They and their work are bridge-building.

  18th Art-Talk | An evening with Mitch Dobrowner    
 

Mitch Dobrowner has been chasing storms since 2009, traveling throughout Western and Midwestern America to capture nature in its full fury. Making photographs in the tradition of Ansel Adams, to the highest standard of craftsmanship, Dobrowner creates extraordinary black-and-white images of monsoons, tornados and massive thunderstorms conjure awe and wonder.

 

Looking back at two WWII artists seventy five years latter.

During World War II, the relations between art and war can be articulated around two main issues. First, art (and, more generally, culture) found itself at the centre of an ideological war. Second, during World War II, many artists found themselves in the most difficult conditions and their works are a testimony to a powerful "urge to create." Such creative impulse can be interpreted as the expression of self-preservation, a survival instinct in critical times.
