August 13 – September 10 Felice House & Dana Younger Sum You Some Me
Whether working individually or as a couple, painter Felice House and sculptor Dana Younger produce images and objects that address some of society’s most fundamental binaries: the masculine versus the feminine, the natural versus the cultural, the part versus the whole. Neither icons, nor ruins nor relics, but participating in the classical academic and cultural traditions in which all three arose and flourished, the works in this exhibition celebrate the human figure and the human form in order to expose some of the dangers inherent in an anthropocentric worldview.

July 23 – September 10 Stephanie Clayton Gestures and Geoforms
Gestures and Geoforms is a new exhibit of recent paintings by Austin-based artist Stephanie Hoff Clayton. These abstract paintings focus on relationships between geometric shapes, color fields and gestural configurations. The artist uses certain visual imagery - juxtapositions of shape, line or texture in a variety of settings, both man-made and natural - as starting points for making paintings. She imagines these juxtapositions in a different context, a created reality in a two dimensional format.
Artist Reception: September 10, 1 - 3pm
September 17 - October 16 Laura Latimer Synapse
Synapses are structures that allow our brain to pass signals between nerve cells; they play an important role in the storage of information to form memories. Art, science, culture and philosophy converge in a constantly streaming information exchange – often charged with adversity. This new work explores seemingly opposing forces as they influence one another. Natural processes, communication systems, and human marks of development inspire compositions that unmask one possibility of beauty generated when contradictions collide.
