NEITHER HERE NOR THERE

JANUARY 31 – MARCH 3, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, Jan 31, 6-8 p.m.
               (Snow Date: Thurs, Feb 7, 6-8 p.m.)
Artist Talk:
Wed, Feb 20, 6-8 p.m.

Like trying to describe a color with words, a painter reaches for what is hard to make real. Like color, a painting can seem to be more than one thing. The way in which a painter wrestles with issues is hard to pin down. There is no ever-reliable solution. Often a painting depends not just on the painter, but also on the imagination and willingness of the viewer. Neither Here Nor There presents a collection of six artists work that eludes, disrupts, or transforms what seems familiar. Participating Artists: Samantha Bates, Gideon Bok, Rachel Helmann, Sam King, Matt Murphy and Stephanie Pierce. Curated by Matt Murphy.
