This trio of exhibits opens Saturday, December 5, 2009. The opening reception is from 7 to 10 p.m.

New Work by Rebecca Carter and Thomas Feulmer

Rebecca Carter presents The Love Letter, a collection of works in thread, neon, and photography investigating love, its absence, and the materialization of language.

Thomas Feulmer’s recent work looks at intimacy, attraction, and masculinity. Each of these notions have been played out in high (art history) and low (workout magazines) cultural arenas. Frameworks of meaning – such as myth, commerce, and history – keep these ideas in a fluid state. Feulmer uses imagery and language from gym culture, religious history, and animal-human interactions as overlapping reference points for work in a variety of media.

UPSTAIRS GALLERY – Melancholia by Julie Barnofski

The images explore physical manifestations of melancholia by specifically pairing fragments of daily encounters of implicit loss without showing what is lost. These photographs are explorations of how loss is materialized and visualized despite its ethereal state. This accounts for their extremely small size, as I ask the viewer to examine them intimately, forging his or her own connection with each piece, and not allowing enough space for more than one person to adequately view them at a time. Though materializing an intangible concept provides a daunting or perhaps seemingly impossible task, melancholy scenes are represented in these images as they stagnantly express morose or nostalgic scenarios, often ambiguous in nature, while remaining indefinable. In addition to this, these photographs involve the viewer as an active participant, asking her to establish her subjective or objective connection to each scene and sense of disconnection from the real (or, what is a mere representation of reality within each photo).
