What Remains

Exhibition runs: January 13th-March 12th, 2017
Exhibition Opening: Friday, January 13th 6-9pm

What Remains is comprised of the work of four artists who contend with conditions of identity through unique and varied means. This multimedia exhibition incorporates dialogical performance highlighting resistance to a gendering and racializing gaze formed on Eurocentric constructions of identity politics. Sincere, experiential, embodied works from the following artists will be featured: Afuwa, Chun Hua Catherine Dong, Marbella Anne Carlos and Jordan Martin.

The artists’ performances relate to moments of their lived experience as they consider what remains after the performance —placeholders for future engagements with a gallery audience. The residue of performance includes video, photography, physical objects and other remnants —elements that can only linger as memory.

This exhibition will focus on the importance of performance as process that decenters value constructs placed upon the art object. In this case, these processes are not concerned with success tied to a commercial market of production. The work presented is a culmination of the everyday experiences generously shared by the artists, held and supported by the gallery.

Salon Shop Presents
Abstract Revamp: The Artwork of Sandra Leigh Savage-Morgan

Exhibition runs: January 13th-March 12th, 2017
Exhibition Opening: Friday, January 13th 6-9pm

These artworks have been in process for almost a decade. Paintings created and set aside by Sandra Leigh Savage-Morgan in 2008 are being revisited, edited and reclaimed. This process mirrors the artist’s own path in which she is taking stock of her artistic journey. Each of these pieces contain multiple stages in her artistic growth where layers take years to develop, as she carefully places brush stroke upon brush stroke.

A painting is never finished —it simply stops in interesting places.
Paul Gardner

Sandra’s future looks bright as she continues her ongoing relationship with her art. Without a final destination she continues her lifelong journey to create, explore, and reflect. Sandra invites you to pause and take a moment to reflect with her during this important milestone, her debut exhibition.
