Upcoming Exhibitions



Mar Hester

Upfront + Lobby
February 7 – 29

After having completed a six-month residency at Artspace,  Hester will demonstrate the direction her work has taken since her time at Artspace. Using photography and origami folding patterns,  Hester investigates the role of the landscape on modern life. The basis of her work lies in challenging the traditional means of viewing photography while commenting on our ever shifting environment.


Elizabeth Alexander + Patty Carroll
Domestic Demise

Gallery 1
February 15 – April 11

Through site-specific installation and photographic imagery, both artists explore the feminine domestic sphere through the lens of compulsion and excess. Gallery 1 will be transformed into a riot of rococo color and pattern that prompts viewers to consider the toll that the traditional American dream of domestic life has on female identity.


Chance Murray
Rubber Donkey Party

Gallery 2
March 6 – April 25

Artist Chance Murray’s mixed media paintings embody the rural Southern environment  in which they are made. Paint, text and objects present an unsettling yet humorous glimpse into the artists’ world. In our increasingly expansive culture,  work that is produced from a specific and singular point of view offers an opportunity to pause and reflect on the importance of the particular.
