The reading will feature a book launch for THINK THE WORST, Gary Duehr's new mini-book of poems.
Gallery I and II: Adria Arch: Glyphs/ Constructions and Works
Based on doodles in her son's high school notebooks, these paintings and wood constructions by gallery artist Adria Arch recreate a secret, indecipherable language that she found crammed between lecture notes. An installation of wall constructions—rich with color, in playful juxtapositions, fills one gallery, while 10-foot-tall paper scrolls festoon the second space.
Gallery III: Gary Duehr: Interstices
Printed on aluminum, the photographs in "Interstices" capture impressions of the city at night. They focus on the blank spaces, the intervals between buildings.
In these images, things are on the verge of vanishing. A looming skyscraper, a construction crane, a lit-up bus, a passerby caught in a crosswalk. The street becomes an arena of shifting views, in which the black void hovers just beyond. The familiar shimmers, trembles, and becomes almost unrecognizable.
From below the sheen of the aluminum surface, the black pigment breaks and dissolves. The city at night becomes a mirror, a mirage.
