Christine Cassano “Sleep Furiously”, 10” h x 30”wx 1.5”d

The Artlink Gallery at Heritage Square is excited to present the works of Christine Cassano’s “Adaptations” for its final show. The gallery will be open for the closing reception on Third Friday and for Art Detour 24 Weekend.

Cassano’s multimedia and concrete pieces bring forth a visual narrative of the modern-day social setting we live in. The viewer can almost interpret sound in Cassano’s intuitive placement of her found objects within the concrete. The result is a cold manifestation of structure and the synthetic.

“With my art-making process, I seek to create an ongoing dialogue of visual elements that explore ideas directly related to environmental adaptation, integrating both manufactured and dried organic found objects into concrete.With this difficult, yet unique medium as an art-making process, my intent is to create intricate assemblages which represent ideas related to our societal modern-day adaptations. Upon viewing, the origins of these salvage objects seem to appeal to our most basic human curiosities and the viewer is visually persuaded to lean in closely – to peer in – becoming intimately engaged with these small reassembled environments. The deliberate combination and composition of objects serve to signify the challenges of each of our own environmental adaptations.”- Christine Cassano

JIM FURY: A CURIOUS CONFLUENCE

30 Sep

The haunting allure of a sideways glance, the mournful whisper of stories half told, and the sly silent laughter of a private joke.  Varied and often conflicting elements intertwine in one irresistible summons:  A Curious Confluence, a collection of photographs by Jim Fury-Hesterman.  Opening reception will take place on Friday, November 4th from six to ten P.M.

Jim Fury-Hesterman’s work is “seemingly commercial” but “underneath there is a (sense) of the unknown… dark and deeply secretive or bright, surreal and a little bit funny.”

Opening Reception First Friday: November 4, 6-10p.m.

Discover India Festival, Sunday Nov 13 11a,-6p.m.

 

Closing Reception Third Friday:  November 18, 6-9p.m.

Merge: Phoenix Poetry Series Retrospective

19 Aug

Photo Courtesy: Sean Deckert

This exhibition is a collection of hand written poetry combined with photographs made from an intuitive response to selected poems. The installation of the original art will create an interactive environment where viewers are enticed to have a more involved physical connection with the poetry and retrospective/current Merge community. Viewers are invited to remove poems and photographs from the gallery wall to read leisurely during the exhibition. There will be a poetry reading that will showcase the poem through the voice of the author. Limited edition copies of the journal will be for sale.
“Making collaborative art in this way is just an organic creation of original synergetic work. I am mostly excited about the fact that the exhibition will be visual, vocal, and audible.” -Sean Deckert

  Follow artist Juliet Oglesbee down into the heart of grief and self-discovery with a three-part gallery installation that explores the experience of separation.  Closing reception will take place on Friday, August 19th from six to nine P.M.

Juliet Oglesbee is an emerging artist fascinated by human emotions and the inner-workings of grief. My Forest and Sea engulfs the viewer in the exquisite pain, alienation, and upheaval of reality that occurs when an individual experiences loss.  The ordinary is isolated and out of place in a world turned upside down.  Many aspects of the piece are inviting, while at the same time, causing discomfort, melancholy and panic.
