Jodi Bee Gallery Opening

Come meet the artist from 5-8pm on Monday, 11/22 for the opening of her new gallery of collages! Excerpt from Jodi Bee's Artist Statement:

My aesthetic is "more is, almost always, more", decoratively embellished, meticulously arranged to create harmony, balance, and a feeling of wholeness. The unique qualities of my collage, in contrast to other contemporary artists creating in the medium, lay in part within the nature of their being quite large in scale, featuring many layers of complexity.  This complexity is present within the symbolic language utilized, as well as in the physical qualities of the artwork. The collections within each work are bound to the wunderkammer, which is defined as a “Chamber of marvels,” and has a history that is both highly interesting and incredibly vast. Popular in the Renaissance, with a brief revival in Victorian England, The wunderkammer applied supreme unifying principles, the collector would contain categorized multiples in cabinets of curiosity. The choices of what specimens to acquire, and how to display them, reflected the interests and personality, unique to each collection, due to the nature of its collector. This, of course, was open to the individual interpretation of the viewer of each collection.
This current series, began in 2017, starting with the works referencing witches, hands, skeletons, and gemstones. It was undertaken by applying common methods of organization of like objects or themes, and in the drawing of analogy as found within these collections. In constructing a composition that emphasizes symmetry, aesthetically conceived pattern, comparison, and contrast, I use in my own two-dimensional wunderkammers within each individual I construct. In following these perimeters, I echo the manner of visual execution made by collectors past.

Jesse James and the Kindred Art Gallery Opening

From the artist, "This gallery show is made up of various friends of mine who are all full time tattooers and also paint in their free time. I'm a firm believer that you can't get better by doing the same thing. To grow, one must be challenged. Painting is the avenue we use to explore different concepts, color schemes, layouts and ideas to better our craft."

Ben DeCamp's Mazel menu take-over - 1 night only

Don't miss Ben DeCamp's menu take-over at Norseman Distillery for one night only on 09/20/2017! Ben's inspiration comes from memories of food his family made him as a child, "I remember being little and my grandfather making me Matzo Brei every morning when I visited him; he would make me break the matzo and told me my great grandfather made him do the same thing. Or my grandmother making latkes with my mom around Hanukkah and the whole house smelling like fried potatoes and apples. The Mamaliga my mom makes which always tastes way better than mine even though I've made it hundreds of times myself. I always thought I had grown up without much of a food history, but as I started cooking I saw the roots it had in my family. The ties it had to my grandfather's childhood growing up in New York during the depression. The cultural history of my grandmother being the daughter of Romanian and Lithuanian immigrants. The attachment to the old country that always remain in the food we eat and love.
