Emily Fleisher
Astro-Turf
October 2 - November 6, 2014

Opening Reception:
Thursday, October 2, 6 to 8pm

Emily Fleisher plays with scale and space, with interior and exterior in very unexpected ways. Grass and trees tumble from familiar objects as the landscape appears to escape, protesting its confinement. By conjuring an endless landscape contained within the most mundane objects, Fleisher dismisses boundaries and suggests that even ordinary things withhold insight into the monumental; a universe resides within a soap dispenser or a tube of toothpaste providing moments of revelation.


Susi Brister
Fables
November 13 - January 15, 2015

Opening Reception:
Thursday, November 13, 6 to 8pm

Susi Brister's photographs are full of whimsy and camoflage. Using a quircky combination of natural settings and staging, Brister combines the synthetic with the pastoral. She creates magical moments where creatures emerge from their habitats. Occassionally cozy polyesters touch darker topics like in, "Hi-Lo Rabbit on Country Road". Carefull composition, intrigue, use of multiple patterns, and a fine sense of texture permeate Brister's work.
