Civilian Art Projects presents two new exhibitions for the launch of the Fall season:
Opening reception: Saturday, September 17, 7 to 9 p.m. at Civilian Art Projects.
Pan's Pipes, a collaborative installation by Ryan Hill, Erick Jackson and George Jenne;
Site/Schema, new work and site-specific installation by recent American University graduate Nikki Painter.
Artists Ryan Hill, Erick Jackson, and George Jenne investigate the counterculture vocabulary they grew up with to create the exhibition Pan's Pipes. With the goal of creating the psychological feel of headshops and other illicit spaces where teens go to escape the realities of family and school, the artists create new works on paper, sculpture, and a unique installation. According to the artists, these kinds of spaces were a combination of sights, sounds, literature, and even smells that would stimulate feelings of the fantastic and the forbidden.
In her second solo exhibition at the gallery, Painter's works continue to develop and expand a set of images, bright colors, and patterns to investigate the ways in which chaos and order interact and co-exist. She will exhibit new works on paper and two site-specific installations, one in the project space and one in "The Entrance," foyer space made available for experiments and artist-directed projects.
