“Current Locations”: our 4th Anniversary Exhibition
On view: April 8th – May 29, 2017
Artist Reception: Friday, April 28th, 6 – 8pm
Every April, Ground Floor Gallery owners, Krista Scenna & Jill Benson, celebrate the gallery‘s anniversary by asking artists from the previous season to recommend artists to show in the future.
The 5 talents in “Current Locations” were selected from these recommendations and we are thrilled to introduce them to you all!
“Current Locations” also speaks to these artists’ affinity with creating a sense of place (or places):
Painter Barbara Marks creates voluminous pictorial & interior spaces with her deeply saturated color palette; Elise Church paints intimate environments based on her travels in space in time; Colombian artist, Esperanza Cortés incorporates natural resources and folklore motifs from her homeland as a means of exploring personal identity; Kyle Vu-Dunn sculpts warped “natural” environments to harbor the self; and Viviane Rombaldi Seppey blends world maps (with emphasis on places she’s lived) with morbid imagery from traditional medical textbooks.
