•2012 Indulge

           Curated by Anni Holm -Curator

           Imagine: hotdogs, funnel cakes, gummy bears, chocolate cake, bananas, ice cream, strawberries, crab legs, oysters, pasta,            salads, water, beer, wine and champagne. Then imagine: 5-star restaurants, diners, food trucks, concession stands, farm            stands and of cause an all you can eat buffet. Are you hungry now? This exhibition will take a closer look at one of our basic            needs through the eyes of contemporary (perhaps starving) artists. Welcome to the smorgasbord.

 

2012 illumunate Show

           Guest Juror: Frank Maugeri, Co-Artistic Director of RedMoon.

           illuminate explores light in all of its forms and is open to conceptual interpretation. This show is beyond anything Water Street            Studios has ever done. illuminate is more of an "event" than a show. This is a dimly lit show, with the gallery's house lights off            and sporadic track lights on. This show also exhibits work in the additional 3,800 sq ft space adjacent to our already large            gallery. This space will have all it's lights off and feature work that is self-illuminating.
