Franklin Evans

Franklin Evans has two new video in an exhibiton at the Morgan Lehman Gallery in New York.

His densely layered drawing style is transposed to video through layered images of his own drawings, overlaid with digital markings and musical excerpts that set the amusingly frenetic yet erotic mood."

This conference will encourage critical discourse on such issues as digital media and expanded notions of print media, print theory, the plight of material and process specific disciplines, marginalization, and understanding printmaking's shift to a place of leadership in the postmodern terrain." -SGCC

Closes: May 3, 2008

"Focusing on photography, Stretching the Truth will feature works by twenty-six artists who demonstrate this medium's rapidly expanding boundaries. With a basis in models or sets of constructed images, or with the employment of innovative processes including multiple exposures, repeated or layered negatives, digital augmentation, or collaged prints in both two-dimensional and sculptural form, the works manipulate the medium to present a new reality that questions the "truthfulness" generally associated with photographic representation." -Jennifer Jankauskas

Lê, Richard Galpin, Jonathan Lewis, Didier Massard, Abelardo Morell, Nic Nicosa, Aziz + Cucher, Isidro Blasco, Chambliss Giobbi, Daniel Gordon, Oliver Herring, Susan Leopold, Wardell Milan, Adia Millet, Lori Nix, Paul Pfeiffer, Lucas Samaras, Pete Checchia, Allison Hunter, Young-Min Kang, Rusty Scruby and Tom Bamberger.

VCU invades Ojai

Valerie Molar, Monica Palma, Alexis Semter
The gallery will host an opening reception on Saturday, February 2, 5 – 7 pm.

How did it happen? Eight out of eight. All women. Whatever the reasons, the current MFA candidates at Virginia Commonwealth University constitute a welcome inversion of the typically male dominated art and academic worlds. One thing is certain: it was not the result of affirmative action; the strongest applicants just happened to be female. Nor is it all that surprising, considering the proliferation of women artists making some of the best work today. What sets this group apart, especially with the current climate of dog-eat-dog competition, is the manner in which they behave as a unit, an old-school gang, despite their diverse backgrounds and points of view. Amid their individual triumphs and adversities, they embrace each other to move forward collectively, revealing a profound sensitivity to the issues and concerns of the world around them. Each of their contributions stands squarely on its own, but the collective exhibition of their work demonstrates how entire creative communities come into being and flourish: with the right combination of talent and luck. The fact that they are all women merely makes this transformation more vivid.
