Michael Stillion's SET IN STONE:
September 20th, 2020 - November 22nd, 2020
In these bodies of work, I am interested in blending still life and landscape with inanimate figures and portraiture. What inspires me in the studio is wide ranging – cartoons, a worn drive thru sign in my neighborhood, cigarettes my grandma smoked, Lizzo, and a Van Eyck grisaille painting titled the Annunciation. While these inspirations may seem incongruous, their combined effect has been my creation of a vocabulary of symbols and compositions. Vases filled with red flowers bend and press on the edges of the picture, shoes and gloves contort to provide a compressed tension and smoke creates a curtain of shadows. Everything is on display and open for interpretation.

THROUGH THE SHADOWS / A TRAVÉS DE LAS SOMBRAS:
October 1st, 2020 - November 6th, 2020
Contemporary photographers Destiny Mata and Arlene Mejorado come together in A través de las sombras / Through the Shadows to showcase works that not only incorporate each artists' interests in art and journalism, but also shed light on communities largely forgotten and dismissed. Works from this unique outdoor photography exhibition are printed on banners and hung throughout the park, providing the public a new way of interacting with lens-based art.
March 2020 - March 2021
Icelandic sculpture Steinunn Thorarinsdottir utilizes figurative sculpture to explore the human condition, creating androgynous and deliberately anonymous human figures to examine the ways in which humans relate to the environment and to one another. BORDERS consists of a series of eleven pairs of cast iron and cast aluminium life-size sculptures. The figures in the exhibit emphasize the fact that all humans are connected despite our differences.
