A grand opening exhibition wil l take place on April 14th\, 2012 from 6 – 9pm. Regular gallery hours are Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 1 – 6pm.

 Alter Minimal – Lexicon Series Vol. 1 brings together the work of five artists\, working in a variety of visual media\, who are all variously engaged with the aesthetic forms and preoccupations o f the minimal and post-minimal movements\, toward the realization of their own artistic ends.  Minimalism as an art movement is now generally understo od to have emerged from (and as a reaction to) Abstract Expressionism. Movi ng away from expression as ultimate end goal\, Minimalist artists pursued i ntegrity in their work by attempting to free its’ constitution of any non-e ssential elements\, a visual quest for the reductive prime. Post-minimal ar tists carried this movement further by liberating Minimalist structure from requisite right angles and obligatory line\, creating space for a more fer al\, yet still pared down\, essential form.  The artists of Alter Minima l move freely throughout these concerns\, utilizing vocabulary and sign as they see fit.  From the gestural economy of Clinton King’s paintings\, to the poetic\, humanist sculptural extensions of artists Lance Lankford an d Suzanne Stroebe to the syncopated\, angular and sometimes humorous compos itions of Gary Petersen and Andrew Zarou\; these artists accomplish much wi th a concerted little.
