Artist Receptions and Studio Tour After Party: Saturday, May 10 from 5pm to 8:30pm

Curated by Martha Jackson Jarvis.

Featuring Shaunte’ Gates and Nijena Surae Jarvis.

“The works of Shaunte’ Gates and Njena Surae Jarvis explore the body as metaphor, challenging the torpid qualities of painting and sculpture with a sense of didactic theater and enigmatic forms. Their works command and redefine space with mysterious pairings of disparate forms and malign compositions. There is a non-static reconfiguration, reconstruction and reinvention that occurs simultaneously that both disturbs and stimulates. Viewers are made a part of this ever changing matrix that remains haunting, unknowable and in a state of flux.”  – Martha Jackson Jarvis
