Daniel Heimbinder
Three of Daniel Heimbinder’s monumental ink and watercolor drawings comprise the entire show, and it’s enough. Detailed figurative and imaginary landscapes represent the culmination of a narrative continuum with countless sub-plots. More...


Marian Carow and Deirdre Fox
In “Spatial Rendering” Carow and Fox present works that turn a flat line into voluminous space, cast-off objects into fine ones. More...


Change Agent: June Wayne and the Tamarind Workshop
The difficult path towards social progress serves as the context for "Change Agent," which places June Wayne, in particular her series of works for which subjects were her mother and modern science, at the creative center. More...


Francesca Longhini
Two large-scale quasi-representational paintings are in evocative conversation with a suite of quite different smaller abstractions in Francesca Longhini's exhibition, “Golden Anesthesia.” More...


John Buck
John Buck’s kinetic sculptures produce the pleasure of seeing clashing symbols all moving in concert, wryly playful yet joyless. More...

Lagomorphs
The recent auction sale of Jeff Koons' "Bunny" is just the latest reminder how much the big money art market just pisses DeWitt Cheng off. More...


Inka Essenhigh
Inka Essenhigh’s blend of the familiar and the surreal in fables and narratives feel as grounded in reality as they are utterly fantastical. More...


Shawn Demarest
Cars become the stuff of visual ecstasy in Shaw Demarest's glistening paintings. Flaring headlights and psychedelic color produce a fresh vision of what we take for granted every day driving through town. More...
