STORYLINES

Upcoming Exhibit

By: Lisa Goesling

All artists are Storytellers, drawing people in through their imagery. Storylines consists of two bodies of work created on Scratchboard, hard boards covered in clay and India ink. A simple swipe of a knife and in an instant…a work of art is born.

Lisa Goesling’s series, Environmental Movement, inspired by Eco-Psychology, concentrates on nature’s designs. Mysteries lie deep within unearthed through the lens of a magnifying glass. Spontaneous Combustion converts nature’s minute details into geometric shapes, telling the story of movement, patterns and textures through line. 

Ms. Goesling neither sketches first or erases, enabling the viewer to experience the same level of energy that Lisa does when she creates. Every time you become intimate with her art, you realize that there is always more to the story. 

Exhibit Dates: October 20th-November 27th

Opening Reception: November 3rd, 4-6PM

Workshop: November 15th, 6-8PM

See a video about this exhibit here.

Jonathan McFadden's installation interacts with, interprets, and processes fragments of personal narratives of the people we have loose associations with while finding ourselves as voyeurs in these personal moments. While these digital images appear in our feeds temporarily, they have a permanence and history that exists beyond the brief moment we view them on our devices. By utilizing this information for object creation, the ephemeral take on a static permanence alters how the information is consumed and allows the viewer to engage in new dialogues with the work.

This Dittmar Gallery installation is presenting work made from reactions to news and social media cycles leading up to the exhibition. The intention of this exhibition is to draw attention to the fractured and often sensationalized events and the culture of dramatization it has created. The exhibit consists of a print installation and 2-D works consisting of imagery and text pulled directly from social media pages.

Exibit Dates: September 12th-October 16th

Opening Reception: September 12th, 4-6PM
