Christopher Chiavetta | Joel Elgin | Crit Streed | Amy Uthus 

Opening Reception Friday, February 15, 5-7 pm

The collection of artists exhibiting new work in FLUID GROUND are all concerned with natural elements. The resulting visual representations, while varied, are all in conversation with one another. Ceramic artist Amy Uthus works with a deft hand in her delicate porcelain pieces. Uthus’ vessels carry a certain visual weight and are the inverse of the spire shaped forms shown in Christopher Chiavetta’s large-scale abstract paintings. Both Chiavetta and Streed manifest organic forms through their line work and sense of positive and negative space. The fluidity of Streed’s sumi ink marks and sparse gouache color palette are a stark contemplative contrast to Joel Elgin’s bold, energetic color intaglio prints depicting storms on unsettled waters.
