Kenton Parker: Everything Counts in Small Amounts

Everything Counts in Small Amounts consists of intimate life-sized structures where people dream, and share gestures of friendship. The gallery will be converted into a journey through a charmed landscape.

A wooden treehouse will invite visitors to enter, lay down, and view a video of the night sky. A flower shop filled with potted plants and gardening tools can be peered into.

Paintings on canvas translate the artist’s solitary walks in nature using pastel colors and abstract gestural dots and marks.

The exhibition will also include smaller sculptures and installations that come out of the artist’s ongoing collaboration with his mother, including hand-made quilts and care packages.

Kenton Parker’s work is about setting a stage for innocence, for steadfast friendship, for sharing and helping, and for letting go and moving on. In these structures, Parker channels every child’s escapist fantasy of a hideaway, a special place in which they can be themselves, invite their favorite friends, and be close to nature.

Interactive Area

After experiencing the galleries, visitors will have an opportunity to create special cards and art pieces in the interactive area.

Visitors – young and old alike – can draw, color, glue, and collage a work of art of their own. Handmade creations inspired by nature will serve as an outlet to express the assortment of emotions being felt. The pieces can be cherished or shared with others to enjoy. In doing so, we are all reminded to stop and appreciate nature, love, and happiness happening all around us.

Carmen Tiffany: The Teeth Beneath My Feet

Carmen Tiffany uses drawing, animation, and installation to create a narrative of a lost American West with its own forgotten culture.
