Scorpion and Chickadee is an exhibition of new paintings by Galen Cheney. Painted over the last year, these works embody her ongoing commitment to making paintings that are complex, rigorous, and uncompromising in their emotional honesty. With an approach that is deeply rooted in abstract expressionism, Cheney’s work also contains characteristics of street art, figuration and pop.
Julie Karabenick’s exhibition, Architectural Fantasies, features complex and intricately balanced clusters of architectural fragments and forms that simultaneously clamor for the viewer’s attention. Each cluster presses forward toward the viewer in an impossibly shallow space that defies a single, coherent reading.
