DESCRIPTION

mět'l-ûr'jē

 

November 13- December 3, 2010

Opening reception Saturday November 13th from 6-9 p.m to coencide with the second Saturday Downtown Long Beach Art Walk

 

Backspace Gallery, in association with Phantom Galleries Los Angeles, is pleased to announce the opening of mět'l-ûr'jē, a group exhibition curated by Michael Walsh of new work by artists Debbie Carlson, Yassaman Farmani, Mike Feeney, Angelina Krajewski, Elise Preiss, Michael Steinmetz, Lydia Tijoe and Diane Weimer.

 

Continuing Backspace Gallery’s interest in exploring artists’ materials, techniques, and how they use their specific medium to translate ideas visually, mět'l-ûr'jē focuses the discussion around one medium, and intends to showcase various manifestations of artwork created either entirely of metal or with metal as the primary media.

 

From stand alone objects to objects intended to interact with or be worn on the body; from functional works to those whose “function” is elusive and/or humorous; from meticulously crafted precious metal works to large-scale installation mět'l-ûr'jē will showcase creative and innovative forays into the world of metal artwork.

 

The exhibition will open on November 13th, with an opening reception from 6-9 p.m., and will be on view through December 3, 2010. Backspace Gallery is located at 218 North Promenade Long Beach, Ca 90802. For more information, please email backspacegallery218@gmail.com or visit phantomgalleries.com.
