Provenance at ground floor gallery on-going until July 9th

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

ground floor gallery is pleased to present Provenance featuring artists Ai Campbell, Sara Jones and Anne Mourier-DeFalco. The exhibition is an investigation of unfamiliar family histories through travel, artmaking, and conjecture.  

The exhibition illustrates each artist’s attempt to demystify an estranged familial connection through explorations both in and outside of the studio space. By revisiting unknown or misunderstood identities and destinations of yore, Campbell, Jones and DeFalco intimately craft tender, mixed-media portraits that veer fluidly between the biographical and autobiographical.  As a result, the exhibition emerges as a real time platform where hazy ancestral ties are elucidated and reimagined.

Ground Floor Gallery’s 4th Anniversary Exhibition, Current Locations until May 29th, 2017

Every April, Ground Floor Gallery owners, Krista Scenna & Jill Benson, celebrate the gallery’s anniversary by asking artists from the previous season to recommend artists to show in the current season.   
 

The 5 talents in “Current Locations” were selected from these recommendations and the duo is  thrilled to introduce them to you! 
 

“Current Locations” also speaks to these artists’ affinity with creating a sense of place (or places): painter Barbara Marks creates voluminous pictorial & interior spaces with her deeply saturated color palette; Elise Church paints intimate environments based on her travels in space in time; Colombian artist, Esperanza Cortés incorporates natural resources and folklore motifs from her homeland as a means of exploring personal identity; Kyle Vu-Dunn sculpts warped “natural” environments to harbor the self; and Viviane Rombaldi Seppey blends world maps (with emphasis on places she’s lived) with morbid imagery from traditional medical textbooks. 

Exhibition is ongoing and closes May 29th, 2017

Keeping their inner child unabashedly front and center, the four artists of Child’s Play take a romp through color, ethics, and war. Meg Atkinson, Ken Kocses, Margaret Roleke, and Eileen Weitzman share an interest in the adult nature inherent in toys, visual games, and positing political and social concerns through their sculptural and painted works.

In the Flat File: Featured artist Lydia Viscardi will present a series of paintings on panel that speak directly to childhood memories. Fran Kornfeld’s drawings and paper pulp pieces come from a larger series called Icarus.

Rattle & Hummmm presented by ODETTA Gallery, is about tempo, repetitive actions, and tension. Artists Nancy Baker, Steven Charles, Matt Frieburghaus, and Chris Kaczmarek create post-punk, process-driven visualizations that are equal parts hand and machine-made. Like Ska music, these works of art are joyful on the surface, but the undercurrents contain subtle references to violence, economic meltdowns, and climate change.
