Sunday, January 10, 5 pm: Topic discussion & Closing Reception

Pressure points are vital points that when engaged, release energy and organize a system of communication throughout the body.  In this exhibition, artists use oil and acrylic paintings, multimedia collages, and ink on paper to look at society's pressure points and the external systems which cause internal stress, congestion, ache and fatigue.  The visual analysis is not a protest, or the application of pressure, but instead the energy release that compresses tension and creates dialogue, relief.

Singles Faire: Intimate Gestures
Jenny Walton

November 6, 2015 - January 31, 2016

Sunday, January 31, 2016, 5 pm: Artist Talk and Closing Reception

The small paintings in Singles Faire: Intimate Gestures were created on New York City and Washington, DC transit fare cards, and paper ephemera.  These bits of paper intensify metaphors of passage and journey from their original intentions as fare cards to works that develop layered meanings in body language.  A variety of techniques including media transfer, watercolor, and drawing were used to create these works into awkwardly humorous views into the lives of singles.
