This show is based around the origin of the created worlds by artists working in a variety of media. The gathered roster will include emerging and established artists from a regional and national level who have built their careers on exploring their voice in worlds of their own making. This show is interested in the moment of genesis in the artist’s eye, when the artist almost as an explorer, finds their own brave new world in a moment captured in the simple act of making line.

The enchanting Kara Joslyn in from of her Horizon series of Drawings that seem to render a place of utopian design and living, a place where I would like to live in a time period somewhere between 1976 and 2076.



Nobody scares me more, or makes me laugh harder than the wonderful John Rogers…a difficult and unique balance that he strikes effortlessly. Here Johnstands in front of his Racoonapocalypse drawings that actually glow in the dark.


The dashing Micke Tong in front of his Earthling series: rendered figures who’s scaled skin seems to scintallate in a strangely familiar way.

the Show runs through July 4th. The Gallery is opening Wednesday through Sunday, 12-6pm.
