This year’s annual exhibition by Kingston Gallery’s Associate Artists, in the Main, Center, and Project Space Galleries, explores the various ways artists inhabit, capture, and distinguish space. Some of the works in Space Between share and engage with physical place, such as Amy Kaczur’s video pieces, Messages from the Marsh, Anne Sargent Walker’s paintings of tree branches against the sky, Jamie Bowman’s luscious landscapes or Ponnapa Prakkamakul’s architectural works. Other works use color and form to question surface and space, seen in minimalist paintings by Jane Lincoln and bold, biomorphic works by Diane Novetsky. Ingrid Ludt’s geometric paintings and Brian Littlefield’s rough and soft charcoal drawings choose to straddle the space between nature and abstraction. And in some works, time operates as media, linking duration with outcome, such as Rachel Thern’s rhythmic charcoal drawings or R. Galvan’s meditation on time itself. Throughout the exhibition, all the artists entangle reality with possibility.
Kingston Gallery will participate in First Fridays on July 2, 2021, with social distancing guidelines in place. The public is welcome to visit the gallery from noon to 5 pm starting June 30, the opening day. Public programming, including artist talks, will be announced closer to the opening of the exhibition.
