With all due respect to gravity and its crucial properties, this all-Art Enables exhibition celebrates the feeling of pushing against the forces that anchor us down in favor of those that make us feel buoyant and free.
A handful of works included here present our common associations with a lack of gravity in outer space scenes: an astronaut floats above the surface of the moon in Sarah Swan’s “Don’t Jump Too High!” while Michael Knox’s “Houston, We Have a Problem” depicts a comical attempt to feed a dog in zero gravity. Other works show more earthly sensations of weightlessness — floating in water or jumping into the air. Some feel more surreal — like Eileen Schofield’s fruit bowl floating uncannily above a table — while still others express their exuberant forces through colorful abstract compositions. Fast cars, soaring birds, floating hot dogs, and cosmic hangs are in the air (literally) for our Spring/Summer studio gallery exhibition.
Public gallery hours: Saturdays, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Thursdays, 5 - 7 p.m.
