Join us for the opening reception of our Summer Exhibitions

Main Gallery : Generation W(ar)

Curated by Ichiro Irie and Max Presneill

21-year olds have never lived during a time when the US was not at war.

This exhibition explores our intersection between art and warfare, of artists who focus their art practice toward political expression and social critique of the institutionalization of war into the fabric of society.These artists investigate the mechanisms behind the militarization of society, the embedding of the warrior culture, the invisibility of things in plain sight and the daily relationship to war that underlies the culture at large.

Shusuke Ao, Josh Azzerella,  Dan Van Clapp, Melanie Friend, Shaun Gladwell, Ben Jackel, Hillary Mushkin, Isabel Rocamora, Kim Rugg, Joaquin Segura, Allison Stewart, Yoram Wolberger, and others

Gallery Two: Run Straight Through

Curated by Kate Mothes, this exhibition presents 4 rising stars in the contemporary painting scene.

Thom Trojanowski, Tahnee Lonsdale, Michael Nauert, and Kristy Luck
