Kate Ruggeri sees painting as something to be explored, dissected, and then built again. Her work is a result of a frustration with painting's limitations and a curiosity with where she can take the medium. In the studio, she tries to expand painting in ways that push against its traditions while also embracing her love for its qualities of color, mark, and form. Hannah Tarr's new her work consis...   [more]

Taking equal inspiration from the heterogeneous spaces of the studio and the salon, Szalon [pron. sha-'lon] makes room for an idiomatic place where the practice of showing and telling can flourish. Here, art is lived with and worked on, amidst (and sometimes as) conversation, storytelling, wordplay, rehearsal, research, exercises of judgment, and causes for debate.What constitutes a ‘good hang&r...   [more]

For five weeks, a medium-sized crystal ball will race around Threewalls’ gallery space on a rickety track, interrupted occasionally by doorways and other endpoints where a kind stranger will have to lift it from one side of its path and set it back rolling on the other.

These find expression in visual puns known as rebuses, in which botanical names call to mind homophones for blessings of good fortune, as well as in subtle allusions that endow a plant’s natural attr...   [more]
