Greg Braun: Sharpened

Greg Braun, "Sharpened", 2015

Greg Braun “sharpens” his obsession with custom motorcycles from the Northern California Bay Area circa 1970 and the bling of a retail showroom into a solo exhibition that includes drawing, video and sculpture. Braun debuts colorful new works in a broad range of materials and scale that reach from floor to ceiling, stretch across the walls and embrace the gallery as a shop window.

These Mirrors are Not Boxes

Anna U. Davis, "The Modern Plague, Collage, 30 x 30 inches

These Mirrors are Not Boxes examines the complexities of contemporary identity through the work of six local female artists: Amy Hughes Braden, Milana Braslavsky, Anna U Davis, Nora Howell, Annette Isham, and Lisa Noble. Mirrors of ourselves are often not available on checkbox forms of designated identity categories. Individually the artists contend with issues of categorization, pliability, empathy, and domesticity. Together through a sociocultural lens they contend with issues of marginalization in its myriad mainstream forms. Moments of present day are juxtaposed with fragments of memory and lucid dreams. Disparate aesthetics reveal hidden similarities in themes of calamity and misperception. In juxtaposition the works harness the power of experimental dialogue of which only art can provide.These Mirrors are Not Boxes explores the surprising, alternative, even subversive means and ways identity is formed, presented, confronted, and challenged when marginalized personas are brought out of the fringes. Curated by 2015 VisArts Emerging Curator Kayleigh Bryant-Greenwell.
