Unintended Conversations identifies connections among a group of works and is hung to create a dialogue where the pieces speak to each other and the gallery environment in which they are hung. Both abstract and representational works are hung in close proximity to each other to illuminate aspects of each. The works interact with each other through elements that guide both abstraction and representation, such as relationships among color, line, form and shape as well as the subtler aspects of subject matter. The resulting energy speaks in ways complimentary to that originally intended by the individual artists.
The Artists of Gallery One, also known as Gallery One, is a community of artists whose common bond is a commitment to each artist’s individual voice and evolution. Each artist represents a different background and tradition which is clearly visible in the art. How each artist interprets the world and works with materials transforms into unique images. At a Gallery One exhibition, you are as likely to find an artist’s careful rendering of a subject caught in a particular light, as you are to encounter a wholly expressive gestural depiction of a figure. Next to these you might find a work whose objectives appear to be solely material and procedural or referencing text, imaginary worlds or more abstract aspects of life. The collective body of work plays both against and with each other’s art creating a unique conversation about how we respond to our world.
Exhibiting Artists are David Brown, Ashby Carlisle, Catherine Christiano, Bette Ellsworth, Ellen Gaube, Deborah Hornbake, Ann Knickerbocker, Judith Barbour Osborne, T. Willie Raney, Diana Rogers, Rick Silberberg, and Jill Vaughn. For additional information visit www.galleryonect.com
