Opening Soon: "Southern Accent: Seeking The American South In Contemporary Art"

Southern Accent: Seeking the American South in Contemporary Art is the first contemporary art exhibition to question and explore in-depth the complex and contested space of the American South. One needs to look no further than literature, cuisine and music, to see evidence of the South’s profound influence on American culture, and consequently much of the world. This unprecedented exhibition investigates the many realities, fantasies and myths that have long captured the public’s imagination, and presents a wide range of perspectives to create a composite portrait of Southern identity through contemporary art.

Come and See "Thread Lines"

This group exhibition features sixteen artists who engage in sewing, knitting, and weaving to create a wide-range of works that activate the expressive and conceptual potential of line and illuminate affinities between the mediums of textile and drawing. Multi-generational in scope, Thread Lines brings together those pioneers who—challenging entrenched modernist hierarchies—first unraveled the distinction between textile and art with a new wave of contemporary practitioners who have inherited and expanded upon their groundbreaking gestures. 
 

"Signature Scheurer: A Retrospective Of The Works Of Michael Scheurer" - a must-see at Weston

"Signature Scheurer: A Retrospective Of The Works Of Michael Scheurer" - a must-see at Weston

For more than forty years, Michael Scheurer (Cincinnati, OH) has refined his inimitable collage style influenced as much by the Surrealists and Cubists as whatever odd or antique paper, illustrations, handwritings, or fabric he uncovers in his unending quest for inspiration. Scheurer’s work, sometimes intricate, sometimes bold, defies convention in both subject matter and raw material. Signature Scheurer features works from each decade of this prolific artist’s masterful career along with new selections and a series of large-scale murals, artist-designed wallpaper, and collages transferred to handwoven carpets.

Nate Ricciuto: "The Curiosity Motive" - opening soon at Weston!

Nate Ricciuto: "The Curiosity Motive" - opening soon at Weston!

Nate Ricciuto (Columbus, OH) explores the various ways that representations of the natural world are encoded with and shaped by human aspirations and desires. He engages with everyday objects and ad hoc approaches to create spaces where imagination and perception become both tactile and fluid. Making use of the very public aspect of the Weston’s street-level gallery—its high visibility from the street—in The Curiosity Motive, Ricciuto constructs a dioramic landscape that may be observed either from outside or inside depending on the viewer. In collapsing and amplifying the distance between image and spectator, the diorama becomes an illusory space where the objective picture is revealed as another unreality.
