David Burdeny "A Bright Future"
10/8/2015 - 11/8/2015
was one of the USSR’s most extravagant architectural projects. Under Stalin's direction, the Architects were directed to introduce the concept of "svet" or light and "sveltloe budushchee" or a bright future. With their polished marble walls, high vaulted ceilings and ornate chandeliers, the Metro stations have been likened to an “artificial underground sun”. This underground paradise was to remind its riders that Stalin and his party had delivered something substantial to the people in return for their sacrifices.
Burdeny has themed the series around this notion showcasing his photographs of 20 of the metro stations and various Russian museums, palaces and theatre interiors. For this new series, the artist is working with esteemed writer and translator Rosamund Bartlett, highly regarded in academic circles for completing the latest and perhaps best translation of Anna Karenina (2014).

"Overflow", new works by Carol Prusa
1/29/2015 - 3/1/2015
The origins of metalpoint drawing (silverpoint, goldpoint, etc.) are widely thought to lie in classical antiquity. Carol Prusa is known for her use of this ancient technique in a contemporary practice. Prusa combines graphite drawing and titanium white pigment washes to create wall mounted sculptural disks and wall mounted or free standing ceramic spheres covered in organic forms whose compositions are akin to the characteristic curves employed by French Art Nouveau artists of the early 1900s. Charmed by how physicists think, her current work also speaks to multiple universes and possibility. Inspired by TOE (theory of everything), the artist suggests cosmic forms in different stages presented in twinkling three-dimensional hemispheres that employ fibre optics and programmed lights.
Carol Prusas unique art works are exhibited widely in museums and curated exhibitions such as the 2014 Kohler Centre 40th Anniversary Artist in Industry Exhibition, WI and the Contemporary Art at the Miami Museum, FL. Her art is in numerous museum collections including the Perez Museum of Art, Spencer Museum of Art, Museum of Art Ft. Lauderdale, Hunter Museum of American Art and Daum Museum of Contemporary Art.
"After the Storm", new paintings by Stephen Hutchings
3/5/2015 - 3/29/2015
Stephen Hutchings’ work is based in drawing, an interest he has had since childhood. Hutchings’ academic background includes studies in biology, literature and fine art, graduating with a degree in Art History. On a technical level, his paintings combine 19th Century photographic techniques with charcoal drawing directly on the canvas. Colour is applied through the application of layers of oil glazes, or tints; each canvas may receive up to ten such layers. The final result is a presentation of the unique refinement and energetic qualities that only a drawing can provide.
"After the Storm", artist statement
Once the dark clouds have moved off, once the wind has settled down and the rain has subsided, perhaps a patch of blue appears in the sky. Perhaps a soft yellow light infuses the air and swirls of colour enliven the depths of the shadows. After the storm, the world is charged with an expectant energy: a kind of frisson that hovers between hope and relief. The paintings in this show address this moment С when the ravages of a furious energy have waned and a suffusing, gentle light seeps into our world._Stephen Hutchings
