Summer All Present Collar Works Gallery, Troy, NY August 31 - September 21, 2012
We anticipate summer as a season of perfection, but our experience is complex: full and overgrown much like the surrounding foliage. The exhibition Summer All Present included work in a variety of media from Leona Christie, Caitlin Foley, Fernando Orellana, Hiramastu Tsuneaki and Misha Volf. Their work offered a diversity of approach – touching on the familiar, the idealized, the disconcerting, and the easily overlooked. Together the works built a summertime chorus, a rhythm of highs and lows, accelerating toward a deeper meditation on this most fleeting of seasons.
