Volume Inc: This Will (Not) Be Easy

Date: 
Friday, January 24, 2020 - 9:00am to Saturday, February 15, 2020 - 4:00pm

The digital age has gifted us infinite Pinterest, Behance, and Dribble scrolls of refined visual inspiration. These feeds betray the numerous iterations, the dead-ends, the frustration, and (if one is lucky) the a-ha moments necessary to create the designs we admire. The pretty pictures are barely footnotes in the creation story of their design work. Which is why they’ve left them (almost) completely out of this exhibition. You’re getting everything else instead.

David Ondrik: Inheritance

Date: 
Friday, January 17, 2020 - 9:00am to Saturday, February 15, 2020 - 4:00pm

Artist, educator, and writer David Ondrik discusses recent work featured in the Bolivar Art Gallery. Inheritance is shepherding a loved one through terminal illness, environmental disaster,and a glimpse at the vastness of the universe. These non-objective images are simultaneous abstractions of mutated cells and viruses, strip mines or clear-cut forests, and nebula birthing stars. Made at a human-scale, they envelop the viewer, creating an immersive space to invoke contemplation of the treatment of our bodies; our home; our small corner of creation.

Visiting Artist Talk: Jesse Harrod

Date: 
Wednesday, February 12, 2020 - 6:00pm

Jesse Harrod’s work manipulates and transforms materials to animate their sexual and sensual qualities and explore the intersections among queer kinship, support and sexuality. In their sculptural installations, they work with rope as a pliable linear element that they regard much like a drawing tool, specifically utilizing known making techniques such as macrame in ways that can be understood as simultaneously restraining and support.
