KICKSTART, a group show, opens Thursday February 4th and celebrates a new year offering fresh opportunities and a positive outlook; “looking forward” rather than “looking back.”
Jeff Chester’s portraits, while crisp and contemporary, exhibit a retro feel. They, as with Mark Boomershine’s diamond dust “disco- ball” circles, take us back to the 1970s. Jacinto Moros’ metallic blue polyurethane resin sculpture and Jason Trotter’s powerful works on paper, picks up this baton and runs with it. Lucy Soni’s new multi-colored tangles echo the complexities of the past year and offer solutions as well as Katy Ferrarone’s abstract canvases. Gemma Gené’s “Yellow” symbolizes the healing powers and energy attributed to mineral rocks and therefore our hopes for the future. Stephanie Patton’s “You” sculpture asks the obvious question.
KICKSTART, a group show, runs through early March and temperatures will be taken upon entering the gallery.
