Pudy Tong: iterations, duplications
Nick Novak Fellowship Exhibition
Open Studio Gallery

In a media landscape where news is fake and facts are alternative, how does one #resist? That was the primary question Pudy Tong ruminated upon during the course of his Nick Novak Fellowship at Open Studio. This culminating exhibition offers a collection of pictorial and textual works that prompt viewers to engage in acts of reading and rereading, compare and contrast, micro and macro observation. MORE

Josh Brien: the waiting is the doing of the day
Don Phillips Scholarship Exhibition
George Gilmour Members’ Gallery

Josh Brien’s art is a means for him to shift his perspective, to catch a glimpse of the reality that sits behind a screen of thoughts and notions. He draws a world where meaning floats, altering and resisting clarity. A world that is deliberately difficult to pin down, where obscurity provides an opportunity to move beyond logical thinking and see what sits at the base of existence. MORE
