WHO: Anna-Mária Vág strives to bring to light the “rampant obsoletism” that plagues today’s society and in turn promote adaptive re-use and sustainable building practices. For this show by manner of projection she “documents the aesthetic, historical, and utilitarian value of vernacular buildings [who are] devoid of advocates” in order to rekindle a vanishing era and communicate meaning that the built environment has on our every day lives.
With fiber and found objects Jamey Braden & Allison Manch feature themes of love and personal history which invite the viewer to imagine a narrative of transformation all while threading a sense of humor throughout.
The work of Sarah Teasdale is heavily influenced Victorian era life, society and literature. Her paintings are much about color often limiting her palette to two or three colors, she believes in color psychology, creating a sense of atmosphere with each of her pieces.
