SUSAN MIKULA: American Vale
solo exhibition of photography

Pittsfield, Massachusetts grew on the spine of the massive industrial facilities of the General Electric Corporation. Now photographer Susan Mikula revisits them in American Vale, finding the unromanticized, present, physical beauty of these sites and the landscapes they shape.

COUPLES
Group show of painting, photography and sculpture by pairs of independent visual artists.

Thursday, July 1, 7 – 8 pm
moderated discussion with Leslie Ferrin and attending artists

Michael Glier - Jenny Holzer

Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison

Scott Prior - Nanny Vonnegut

Katia Santibanez - James Siena

Mara and Roy Superior

The artists in COUPLES maintain separate professional identities, independent gallery representation and, in some cases, studios located quite far apart.  Some of the couples work in adjacent spaces and occasionally create collaborative works.  The unifying factor between them all is a high level of mutual support and ongoing intellectual inspiration.  In their statements, many artists discuss how their personal relationship affects their work and lives.


Through July 25th

MICHAEL BORONIEC
Crude Awakening

Artist responds to Gulf Oil Spill through sculpture, printmaking and objects in 
a series of sculptures and objects

"
It’s a narrative. They are props for a story. Sadly, the story isn’t fiction, people have lost their livelihoods, the ecosystem has sustained serious damage. So,when no one knows who BP is, what BP did, or what even BP stands for, the story will still be written.”
