David Grossman’s Solo Exhibition: Inward. “These paintings are my introspections, my inward journey to understand something about the motivations that drive me as an artist. I wanted to go deeper into my subject matter, my materials, and my inspirations behind each painting. This led me to focus some of these pieces around specific subjects that have become important and symbolic to me. It gave me the means to experiment with technique in new ways, pushing the boundaries of how I use the pigments, mediums and surfaces that comprise my work. This process of introspection also led me into explorations of mood through texture and color, walking where the blurry lines of reality finally dissolve into abstraction.”
Through July 6

Jonathan Saiz Solo Exhibition: Colorado Coastal. Land-locked Colorado is not an island... yet. Denver born artist Jonathan Saiz explores a vast and beautiful landscape where all of Colorado’s landmarks have been lost to the rising tides of a post climate-change world. The seascape has been a beloved subject matter for painters for centuries; Saiz continues this tradition with hundreds of large and small scale oil paintings with a different, more ominous intent. “The writing is on the wall” he says.

Lion in the Kitchen, a solo exhibition by Portland, Maine-based artist Leon Benn> Also exhibiting: Su Su Extrusion Paintings. In his second solo exhibition with the gallery, Benn reflects on the textures and potential narratives of domestic space. After spending a season indoors with mind adrift on the frozen winds of the East Coast winter, Benn found refuge in the pages of the Sunday comics. In what he calls a form of “poetic freestyle,” commonplace conditions of modern living such as artificial light, parking lots, and plastic-wrapped groceries set the stage for imagination.

This is Su Su  introductory exhibition with the gallery, Pittsburgh-based artist Su Su continues her dialog with visual culture through the lens of her Chinese-American heritage. Borrowing pop culture imagery culled from global corporations such as Disney and Del Monte or iconic Western art imagery via Vincent Van Gogh, Su Su fluidly deconstructs and blends loaded aesthetics, altering corresponding cultural meaning.
