Greg Smith "Breakdown Lane Orrery"

Greg Smith "Breakdown Lane Orrery"

An orrery is a mechanical model of a planetary system typically centered by a sun. Greg Smith’s version of this machine appears for the first time in his “Breakdown Lane”, that parallel strip along the highway where risk and the unexpected stumble to invent repair and redeem a road trip to the unknown. Smith’s sculptures, drawings, and repurposed objects also serve as props and tools in his associated performative video. Rich in analogy and metaphor, Smith’s exhibition detours the beaten path to arrive at the intersection of the improbable and the possible.

Keetra Dean Dixon & JK Keller "We Keep Having this Conversation"

Keetra Dean Dixon and JK Keller maintain separate and collaborative practices in graphic design. For this exhibition, they unite to visually explore the inherent malleability of language. Translation, miscommunication, and shifts in meaning take form in an expanded and elastic range of media and process-intensive materials.
