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


Due to covid 19 we are closed for the time being


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.

World War II: A Look Back | Apr 26th – May 31st


Artists:  Millard Sheets &  Milford Zornes
Curator: Gene Sasse


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.
