I HOPE YOU FIND WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR by Chadwick Tolley

SEPTEMBER 29 - OCTOBER 27 “Trickster” — one who disobeys and disrupts conventional rules and behavior.

This exhibition of embellished prints and drawings creates a vibrant and striking visual collage.

PRACTICO-INERT by Joseph Shetler

AUGUST 12 - SEPTEMBER 22 Joseph Shetler's exhibition, Practico-Inert, a series of works on paper draws on his Mennonite roots. Shetler’s works in graphite share simple patterns and progressions on grids. These “grid drawings” are entirely unplanned. Patterns emerge from a simple set of predetermined rules. Of these purposefully simplistic works, Shetler says “One of the ways to live simply is to not place too much emphasis on the endless pursuit of worldly success, popular culture, and social media. As a visual artist, I create work that reflects these values; it’s a rejection of the things that I believe complicate our lives.”
