Magically Thinking

Sep 20, 2022 @ 10:00 AM
Oct 01, 2022 @ 04:00 PM

Magically Thinking includes works by Sharon Louise Barnes, Carlos Beltran Arechiga, Vita Eruhimovitz, Margaret Griffith, Kim Marra, Dakota Noot, Megan Reed and Jonathan Ryan. Masters of world-building, these artists transport viewers into their creative consciousness with visual language, often employing obsessive or even ritualistic methods to yield their desired outcome. In painting, drawing, sculpture and installation, these artists travel between the physical world and worlds of their own creation, often blurring the lines between abstraction and representation.  Their expression serves as a response to the insecurity of an uncertain world that leads to the mental gymnastics of magical thinking.

An artist talk will be held in the AGCC gallery on September 24th and the exhibition runs through October 1, 2022. For more information visit angelsgateart.org.
