Our upcoming exhibit, ARCHITECTONIC, features new works by Sharon Dowell, Matthew Steele and Chris Neyen. Through painting, sculpture, photography and installation, this thought-provoking show combines the similar perspectives and varying styles of three different artists as they've observed explosive commercial development in the Charlotte community. The opening reception is Friday, April 7th from 7 to 10pm and will be on display through April 28th.
Physical structure is the commonality that binds this exhibition together. Matthew Steele’s new sculptural series explores history, memory, nostalgia and how social architecture influences those things.
In her paintings and installation, Sharon Dowell questions the boxing in of other people and the harnessing and destruction of nature; at the end of the day, what is it all for?
Chris Neyen’s photography reimagines our structural identity, reflecting that architecture and infrastructure create our surroundings and affect the conditions of our collective consciousness.
