I am pleased to announce the opening of Strangers: October 11 thru November 8. This first exhibition is a collection of unconventional portraits from 8 artists, with works from Jorge Julian Aristizabal, Rico Gatson, Jayson Keeling, Lynn Palewicz, Ryan Roth, Jose Ruiz, Julie Weitz, and Fred Wilson.
Strangers is a room of characters, as diverse as the artists who present them. Each of these characters are hidden or hiding. Veiled by masks, shadows and ornament, these elusive subjects are defined by the clues they reveal. Each stands side by side in an exhibition that uses the notion of "strangers" to affirm the role of the gallery. Many of these artists have never met, and do not know each other's work. This show, and the gallery in general are here to bring artists together, to draw links between diverse practices, and to provide a site where ideas can be shared.
