Elements - Opening reception

About the exhibit: 

There is a bit of the curious child still hiding in each of these artists. They examine the world and take bits of it apart to see how it works. These three artists seldom put the bits back together the way they found it.

Under Myles Bennett’s skillful hand the canvas is no longer just a resting place for applied paint.  In his new body of work, his careful examination and deconstruction of the structure of this basic artist material turn the strings of the canvas into poems and songs.

Saul Gray-Hildenbrand specializes in renderings of mysterious figures, and he finds surprising uses for objects and remnants that had fallen into disuse. He approaches everything with a question and delights in offering you unique answers.

Miranda Herrick has made 365 small, colorful drawings (one made on each day of 2017.) Each individual drawing was created as a celebration and meditation for the day it was created and captures a little of her energy and effort from that day.

This exhibit is a conversation about the elements (material and ethereal) that compose our daily lives in this fast-paced modern world and the attempt to slow down the world with thoughtful and meticulous examination.  Not one of these artists is afraid of a hard day’s work.  Tedium as meditation and an intensity of repetition are large parts of this playful, experimental dialogue.
