“Clean and Cut.” By David Willburn

Reception to take place from 5:30 – 8:00 pm, this Thursday December 18th. The show will remain on display through January 30th

Please come help us congratulate David Willburn for being given the honor of  ‘Best in Show!’

Special thanks to our juror Jodi Hays, who carefully selected amongst the work of many wonderful artists. Jodi summarizes her process with the following:

“In this juried exhibition I chose works from artists who seem to be following their own practice, with their own rules or “alphabet”, to quote painter Charlene Von Heyl. I generally sought multiple works per artist whose creating a context (even if a small one) for the artist’s works.

In terms of process, several artists use cutting or sewing (incised marks on a photograph, exact-o knife for masking tape, needles for thread) on a fairly conventional support (canvas, paper). But results are fresh and seemingly effects of an artist getting to know one’s own alphabet; abstract shapes taking on silhouette narratives (David Willburn), a 4×6 photograph (yeah, those real ones that we used to print) loaded with all it’s conventions of time and space masked with layers of colorful Martha Stewart­like tape (KJ Schumacher) and thin scratchy, barely visible lines recalling mapping and geography incised on printed photographs of an azure sky (Kelly Jones).

The juried show format at Ground Floor Gallery stands for such an important milestone in a working artists’ professional life, and I loved seeing the work. Thanks to everyone who submitted and for their commitment to their practice.”
