    Roark Congdon

    Roark Congdon - January 4 to March 7, 2024

“I find myself traversing the delicate balance between tradition and innovation, recognizing that these seemingly opposing forces can coexist harmoniously to create something new and profound.” Congdon states “This synthesis allows me to respect the handcrafting process and the tactile beauty of mark-making while embracing the boundless possibilities offered by modern technology.” Congdon was trained as a classical sculptor in Italy and translates this influence to his 2-dimensional work.

Irina Kladova

Irina Kladova - January 3 to March 6, 2024

Irina Kladova’s artistic process “begins with observing, looking for the fragmentary passages that are often unnoticed but are present all around us.” In her watercolor paintings, she enjoys stitching together small details, shades of colors, and a variety of different patterns, creating stories from these moments. “My work is a reflection of my own experiences and thoughts, as well as an attempt to understand the relationships between objects and their characteristics. Watercolor brings a sense of unpredictability and transience to my work, much like the ever changing nature of life. Each stroke of the brush adds another layer to my artistic vision, creating an ongoing narrative that is part of a larger work. Ultimately, my goal as an artist is to invite others to see the world in a new way, and to appreciate the beauty that exists in the in between spaces of our lives. Through my art, I hope to create a dialogue about the value of slowing down, being present, and appreciating the world around us.”

@AnnaMiaDavidson: American Muslim - November 8 - January 31, 2024
Opening Reception: Wednesday, December 6, 5:30-6:30PM. 

"This portrait project about American Muslim women of the millennial/gen-z generation shot through a positive lens facilitates a deeper understanding to combat negative stereotypes. This photographic project intends to raise awareness, change the narrative, build cross cultural bridges and foster peaceful coexistence which is a universal issue across the globe. The portraits facilitate a deeper understanding of a community underrepresented and often left out of the artistic foreground. Through positive images and interview text pairings, this photographic project cultivates a deeper perspective about American Muslims. In her own words each woman photographed states how she would like to be seen and about her passion such as kickboxing, farming, neuroscience, music, skateboarding etc. Together, image and text create an important collection of portrait documentation of young American Muslim women." - Anna Mia Davidson
