For the first time ever, Fall SOLOS 2017 will feature an entirely female line-up of artists, many of whom explore themes related to feminism, gender, and identity. Although each artist’s installation is developed from a unique point of view, the Fall SOLOS 2017 exhibitions present relevant and meaningful interpretations of contemporary life.

Ryan McCoy
To Sleep in Flames and Dream of Rain
Ryan McCoy’s haunting and lyrical works are rooted in the languages of abstraction and minimalism. Baby powder, sea water, pine needles, straw, rust, and other materials are combined to create new iconographies about time, place, and memory. Disparate pieces of the past are transformed into artifacts of an ever-fleeting present. Isolation, longing, alienation, and impermanence are key underlying themes in this body of work, created over the past twelve years. McCoy’s exhibition, To Sleep in Flames and Dream of Rain places these themes against the backdrop of today’s political, social, and economic turbulence.

Gallery Hours:

  • Wednesday – Sunday: Noon to 5pm
  • or by appointment
