Curator Jane Simon did a great job presenting a collection of drawings, prints, sculpture, and artifacts that Dion has created over the last 10 years. Dion’s work comments on and questions the role people have have with their surrounding environment, teaching the viewer to appreciate everyday interactions as the fantastic. He blurs the boundaries between scientist, collector, conservationist and artist.
Kate took me on a special late night outing to see her installation, I’ll Find You Again, at the Aquarium Gallery while I was visiting her in New Orleans this past week.
She has transformed the back room into a dream world where her beautifully delicate renderings sit perfectly with the found materials she works with. Accompanying the work is her own music, an intoxicating mix of Piano and Saw.
You can see more of Kate’s work here.
Our latest Gawker Artists exhibition, Post Paper, opened last night. It was quite a party, we had fun celebrating with the artists and our friends. All the artists in Post Paper have works available for sale on Etta Place. Be sure to check out their collections!
Post Paper is a group show of collage works by Malado Baldwin, Molly George, Alison Mazur, Brian Stevenson and Stephen Zerbe, and the latest exhibition in the Art@Gawker series. Post Paper brings together a group of artists that combine and rework found materials to create new imagery with a broad range of themes including freedom, youth, beauty, consumption, sexuality, faith and identity. With their collection and reinterpretation of existing media, the artists present fresh and often humorous personal observations, commentaries on popular culture, and visual odes to memories and imaginary spaces
