Adam Donnelly & Meggan Gould: Tangential Photography

Friday,  10.27.17   |   5–9 pm
Adam Donnelly and Meggan Gould use as their medium the "physical and digital waste" that are left behind when creating photographic works. "Donnelly uses a protective dye on sheet film that is washed off prior to processing, called the antihalation layer, to make paintings on canvas. Gould uses a library of all her Photoshop masks, as subjects for ink drawings on tracing paper. These are layered in a way the is reminiscent of their digital structure."In light of Hurricane Harvey, Flatland Gallery will be holding a small art auction during the opening, with works donated by the featured artists and a few other Houston area artists.

In Passing: Genevieve Gaignard

September 8 through October 22, 2017
A show of works by Los Angeles-based artist Genevieve Gaignard. "This exhibition brings together several bodies of work made between 2015 and the present, mapping the artist’s ever-evolving performance of identity through large-format self-portraits and vernacular installations. Through an array of campy stereotypes that range from a suspicious housewife peering out a window to a Divine-esque drag queen, Gaignard interrogates her own intersectional identity as a biracial woman as well as the often murky, difficult terrain of race, class, and gender in contemporary culture."

Adam Donnelly & Meggan Gould: Tangential Photography

September 15 through October 27, 2017
Adam Donnelly and Meggan Gould use as their medium the "physical and digital waste" that are left behind when creating photographic works. "Donnelly uses a protective dye on sheet film that is washed off prior to processing, called the antihalation layer, to make paintings on canvas. Gould uses a library of all her Photoshop masks, as subjects for ink drawings on tracing paper. These are layered in a way the is reminiscent of their digital structure."In light of Hurricane Harvey, Flatland Gallery will be holding a small art auction during the opening, with works donated by the featured artists and a few other Houston area artists. All funds will go to the Houston Area Women's Shelter: http://www.hawc.org.
