We are no longer located at a permanent gallery location and are now using alternative venues to exhibit curated shows.
Internal Environments 2008 - Project Forefront and Ongoing
Upon speaking with artists about their inspirations, the intent with which they pursue time in the studio, their desire for recognition and solo exhibitions, I began to see another pattern: Artists personal Internal stories being translated into art which we then view in the Environment of the gallery…for about 6 weeks - and then it's on to the next artist.
After contemplating the above, listening to the artists and listening to collectors, I cancelled all of the solo/ 2-person shows I had booked for the year.
Instead, these artists will work all year long in the studio, developing work as they desire, making work in process as usual, but exposing it in waves, not all at one solo show, one at a time.
The stages of the studio process will be divided into 4 receptions that will each launch new clusters or major pieces of work by all of the 12 artists at the same time. The shows will be hung Salon Style in the Main Gallery.
When the work sells it will be allowed to be taken by the collector almost immediately and even more new work could be set in its place, creating a ride range of reactionary emotions by those who missed out. Because the shows have the potential to change daily, there will always be something new to see.
In this way we can truly see the artists Internal Environment in the studio and engage in the Environment of the gallery. We intend to build a relationship with the artists and their audiences with continuous exposure. In addition, collectors can learn about the gallery's intent as a whole: Showcasing Artists in the Forefront.
