Kalee Appleton: Supplementary Scenes

Galveston Arts Center

July 14 - August 19, 2018

"Kalee Appleton’s work deals with the nature and materiality of photography through the enduring tradition of landscape photography. Supplementary Scenes explores the objectivity of idealized landscapes and utopian worlds depicted in the photographic backdrops commonly used in mainstream photography studios."

Susannah Mira: Lighter than Air

Galveston Arts Center

July 14 - August 19, 2018

"Susannah Mira uses commercial side-stream as her starting point, transforming piles of excess material into sculpture. In manipulating repetitive, geometric units into organic shapes, Mira reinstates the logic of nature into a production cycle that emphasizes profits over planetary stewardship. Her installation, Lighter than Air, employs the metal mesh of used air filters in pieces that appear to float exuberantly in space."

Timothy Harding: Unfurled

Galveston Arts Center

July 14 - August 19, 2018

"Timothy Harding’s exhibition Unfurled includes works that explore the fluid relationship between pictorial space and the three-dimensional realm through hardedge geometric patterns and manipulated surfaces. Harding’s work navigates spatial relationships between drawing, painting, and sculpture, through dimensional paintings and sculptural installations."
