TONIGHT: "December Show 2011"

Happy Holidays from all of us at whitespace gallery!

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!

whitespace presents "Perpetual Assembly"

Perpetual Assembly
works by

Seana Reilly
Ann Stewart
Students from the Auburn University architectural program

August 5 – September 3, 2011

Opening Reception:  Friday, August 5th  | 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
 

Whitepsace is pleased to present Perpetual Assembly, which includes exhibitions in both the whitespace main gallery and whitespec.  The two exhibitions that each take a focused, process-oriented approach to exploring perception.  Architectonic arrangements of line are found throughout the show and ask the viewer to consider his or her relationship to the physical world.

Whitespace gallery houses works by Ann Stewart and Seana Reilly. These two artists are questioning what we know and how we know we know it. The artists share a fascination with cognitive systems, and they explore the nature of existence and knowledge through the medium of graphite.

Whitespec shows a series of stop-motion short films created by freshman architecture students from Auburn University’s Foundation Studio. The films fall into one of two categories: the first deals with movement of the human body through space over time, and the second uses popular music to explore visual communication through text and letter forms.  Both are fascinating studies of architecture as an accumulation of small pieces into a greater whole, as well as a glimpse into how architects can document and represent their ideas via film.
