EXHIBITION: Nina Surel: Sailing to Byzantium
Exhibit runs through January 24, 2016
In Sailing to Byzantium, Nina Surel translates William Butler Yeats’ poetic allegory of aging into an imaginary physical and spiritual journey using sculpture, installation, sound, and video. An ordinary boat is the mode of transport from one realm to another, from the temporal to the eternal. The transformation from youth to old age for women involves negotiation with biology. More info

EXHIBITION: Santiago Rubino: Light Out of Darkness
Exhibit runs through January 24, 2016
The delicate borders between the dream and the real, a deep fascination with the visual luxuries of ancient mythology, and a potent desire to explore the inherent beauty within the disciplines of the physical and metaphysical sciences are all at work for Miami based artist Santiago Rubino.

EXHIBITION: Oliver Wasow: Studio Portraits
Exhibit runs through January 24, 2016
