Some revisit earlier exhibitions, while others feature work that&rsquo;s new or just didn&rsquo;t fit into previous lineups. Overarching themes are not required but can be ambitious. Or it can simply be some New Great Things, to be perused at leisure and with no more in mind than a way to see and ponder objects within a new framework. Works featured in this exhibit, not yet seen in the gallery, reflect an incredible mix of ideas and activity combined with a number of talented, committed and passionate people. Collectively, the works create a living organism comprised of a variety of media including oil, acrylic, photography, paper, photography and sculpture. This diversity, which collides, comments and compliments, is the psychic magic that generates a more fruitful dialogue that will resonate with its audience.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p align="left"><em>Please note: &nbsp;The gallery will be closed&nbsp;July 4th and 5th&nbsp;for the holiday</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p align="left"><em>and the "First&nbsp;Thursday" reception will take place on July 10.</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">&nbsp;</span></p> Sat, 05 Jul 2014 05:52:58 +0000 Arseniy Zhilyaev - Kadist Art Foundation - July 9th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">In his&nbsp;<em>Museum of Russian History (M.I.R.)</em>, Arseniy Zhilyaev positions Vladimir Putin as a model for artistic performance.
