Modus Operandi

Dec. 14, 2002 – Feb. 16, 2003
Opening Reception: Fri., Dec. 13, 2002, 7-10 pm

The exhibition’s title, Modus Operandi, refers to one’s method of working or process; in this case it examines both the artist’s process of creation and how we process memory. The five artists represented display their unique methods and materials as the vehicle for creating their work, while addressing the subject of preservation.


Fat Painting

Oct. 12, 2002 – Dec. 1, 2002
Opening Reception: Fri., Oct. 11, 2002, 7-10 pm

The term “Abstract Expressionism” was first used to describe a Kandinsky painting in 1919. By the 1940s the term had become a movement with the New York School, including artists like Jackson Pollock, William De Kooning, and Franz Kline. Through four South Florida artists who paint in this tradition, the exhibition Fat Painting explores the essence of this movement, the spontaneous assertion of the individual.


Florida Photographers: The Ordinary to the Extraordinary

May 11 – July 7, 2002
Opening Reception: Fri., May 10, 2002, 7-10 pm

The nature of photography is one of description. However the goal is not only to describe the world but to transform it as well. An eclectic group of South Florida photographers come together and exhibit works that explore the mundane, a surrogate record of an ordinary experience, place of person that becomes heightened and exaggerated through perception.
