In the Details
Through March 31, 2017
“In the Details”, curated by Carleen Zimbalatti, is group show featuring the mesmerizing, complex artwork of 17 artists. The labor-intensive quality of their work invites the viewer into an inner world that is both tranquil and multidimensional. Zimbalatti said, “[The show] gives weight to each artist’s meticulous mark-making vocabulary and process. Inch by inch, through skill and craftsmanship, the significance of detail emerges from the iterations and interlacing of small basic elements, creating evocative compositions that maintain a balance between the tangible and a seemingly infinite space. More importantly, the artist’s curated into this exhibition communicate the importance of detail and how the juxtaposition of artistic elements give meaning to the visible world.” (image: Reweaving 3 by Linda Schlosberg)
