Current: Paul Jett and Michael Hampton, October 17 – November 15, 2014, Opening Reception: October 17, 2014, 6-8pm
The relationship between the work of Michael Hampton and Paul Jett is one of both harmony and contrast. Hampton’s watercolors highlight the absolute symmetry and precision of neoclassical architecture, which emphasizes exacting classical line and proportion. Jett’s photographs capture flora he comes across while taking walks in the woods—like dangling tree limbs or Spanish moss. Yet both artists demonstrate the power of simplicity, the impact of a clean line, and the drama of using negative space. These qualities bring cohesion and unity to their very dissimilar subject matter.
Upcoming: Paris Révé: Nurieh Mozaffari, November 21 – December 20, 2014, Opening Reception: November 21, 2014, 6-8pm
Paris Révé on view from November 21 thru December 21, opening reception November 21. As a young art student in Tehran, Nurieh Mozaffari dreamed of seeing Paris, the birthplace of some of the most significant artistic movements of the 20th century. But as part of the revolution generation in Iran, Mozaffari faced tough European tourist visa restrictions which prevented her from traveling to the place she most desired to visit. In 1998, Mozaffari immigrated to Canada and, after receiving her Canadian passport, finally realized her dream of visiting Paris. The exhibition represents Mozaffari’s 30-year love affair with the city. Mozaffari’s use of gold leaf evokes the Baroque domes of 17th century Paris. Her color palette captures the famous “gris” of the Paris sky and the sparkling atmosphere that typifies “The City of Light”.
