Happy Holidays from all of us at whitespace gallery!
Featuring “Light Symphony” For-Ever-Green tree by Jose Dario Gallo
December 10 – December 31, 2011
Opening Reception: Saturday, December 10 | 7 PM – 10 PM


Join us tonight for The December Show, whitespace gallery’s final show of 2011!  It is a survey of works shown over the course of the year and additional pieces by select gallery artists.  Featured artists include Meg Aubrey, Laura Bell, Craig Dongoski, Sarah Emerson, Jody Fausett, Matt Haffner, Wendy Given, Ann-Marie Manker, David Mitchell, Adrienne Outlaw, Suellen Parker, An Pham, Seana Reilly, Michele Schuff, Whitney Stansell, Ann Stewart, and Tommy Taylor.

The For-Ever-Green Eco-Friendly Tree Lot features sustainable, reusable trees and wreaths, each created by artists re-interpreting the traditional Christmas tree and wreath.  They are displayed in the whitespace courtyard, and they are available as part of a cash-and-carry outdoor lot for visitors to take home and use in place of a traditional tree or wreath!  

The team behind gray_matter(s) will also participate by developing a site-specific installation in whitespec that coincides with the outdoor lot and includes a series of experiments in turning a whitespec gray.  The transformations embrace an inclusive and plastic understanding of perception. Through processes of analogy, layering, and gradation, different media are brought into dialogue, the space becomes a hidden dimension of variation.  Difference becomes a relative term, understood through observed realities rather than representations or ideals. In a field of endless subtlety, we find ourselves lost in our own perceptions.  

In addition to the gallery shows and For-Ever-Green lot, the opening reception features delicious treats from the Good Food Truck and general mischief from Bad Santa and his elves!
