Jul 27-Aug 26, 2017 | opening Thur 27 Jul, 6-8pm:
Soon Comes Night. Featuring works by Steven Beckly, Martin Bennett, Sarah Sands Phillips.

Shannon Garden-Smith: Brick in, brick up, brick over and over. Bricks are most often accompanied by other bricks. They are objects which become productive through repetition – brick by brick. Despite their reputation for firm immobility, bricks have action built in. To be precise, they are verbs as much as objects: closing, paving or facing by bricking in, up or over. With Brick in, brick up, brick over and over, Shannon Garden-Smith presents a series of sculptures which disorient the work bricks do. Using domestic decorative filters and foregrounding a tactile, repetitive process, Garden-Smith offers up objects which hold too much and too little in an attempt to resist predetermined, productivist ends ... more
