  • Riffs... On Color and Space — August 29–October 17, 2019
    Barbara Grossman

    Barbara Grossman’s large-scale oil paintings are an exploration of theme and variation. Women singing and reading together are the narrative subjects, while the environment, rooms of luminous color and dynamic pattern, provide the painterly structure and visual complexity which drives Grossman’s work.

    Reception and Gallery Talk September 19, 2019, 5:30-7:00PM

  • Diasporic Musings — October 23–December 9, 2019
    Curated by Sharif Bey

    A selection of ceramic work by African American artists who synthesize, appropriate, incorporate and reject western and non-western cultural influences. Through explorations of symbolism, ritual, function and myth these artists contribute to discussions regarding tradition, social responsibility, race, identity politics, and fetish by negotiating their identities as ceramic artists of the African Diaspora through clay.

    Reception October 23, 2019, 5:00–6:30PM

  • Microworld by Genetic Moo — January 23–March 6, 2020
    Presented by Lumen Art Projects

    Microworlds are immersive spaces full of interactive art. Sensors create a fully responsive and intuitive environment inviting you to engage with digital art. Each microworld is populated by artificial creatures with their own life cycles, energy needs and survival techniques. They may respond to changes in color, movement or sound. Visitors may design new creatures to add into the space using webcams and touch screens. Each Microworld is a celebration of a new type of living art.

  • Marc Chagall Etchings & Lithographs — March 12–May 1, 2020

    Marc Chagall (1887-1985) created art filled with religious symbolism and airy, yet complex imagery. Visual storytelling is central to the work in this exhibition, which includes 10 etchings and 42 brilliantly colored lithographs from his 1956 and 1960 Bible suites. Chagall said he did not see the Bible, rather he dreamed it, even as a child. His vision combines his Jewish heritage and modernist painting aesthetic, providing viewers with a poetic interpretation of the meaning of life.
