‘Invisible College’ Fort Wayne Museum of Art Recap

fort wayne interior

Thank you again to the hundreds of you that came out to our opening of ‘Invisible College’ at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art (FWMoA) earlier this month.

We just got back the professional photos of the opening night festivities and the exhibition layout and wanted to share some of the gems with you all. Look for the full set on our Facebook in the week ahead.

So very happy with how strong the exhibition came together and the museum staff could not have been more amazing to work in tandem with. All the visiting artists were well taken care of and we really got to experience the Fort Wayne community thanks to the unofficial mayor of the town (and the show’s co-curator), Mr. Josef Zimmerman. Everywhere we went, all knew Joe haha

Much love to the museum’s head adjunct curator Josef Zimmerman and President and CEO Charles Shepard III for allowing us into their beautiful space and being such gracious hosts. Props to registrar Leah Reeder as well as Joslyn Elliott and Lauren Wolfer for the excellent job with getting all the works checked in and up on the walls. Big ups to Kay Gregg too (Josef’s better half) for being so welcoming to all of us (hope your ankle is healing up!).

Don’t think I’ll ever forget buzzing about the skies of Fort Wayne with Rabi from Cyrcle in a small helicopter we rented at the town fair.

We look forward to returning to Fort Wayne soon for our next adventure with the FWMoA!

Fresh Coverage of ‘Along Infinite River” up on Arrested Motion

Arrested Motion

 

Arrested Motion stopped in on the opening night of Nosego’s ‘Along Infinite River’ and took some fun fresh pics. Check them out on their website.

Philadelphia-base artist unveiled a collection of new vibrant paintings that put his surreal hybrids of different creatures and landscapes on display.

Nosego Opening Night Coverage from HI-FRUCTOSE

Hi-Fructose’s coverage of Nosego’s ‘Along Infinite River’ is insightful into the work and the artists. Check out the full story on their website now.

Animals in Nosego’s work also hold emotional symbolism for the artist, who uses them as motifs to express his different feelings. When transmuted together, they also come to represent the never-ending connectivity that can be found within nature.

Opening Reception of Nosego ‘Along Infinite River’ and Brian Mashburn ‘Witness’ exhibitions

Saturday, July 18th, Thinkspace Gallery hosted an opening reception for Nosego’s “Along Infinite River” and Brian Mashburn’s “Witness”, along with new works by Drew Leshko in the office.

Opening Night of ‘Beautiful Noise’ & ‘Chasing The Current’

Yosuke Ueno Artist

The opening night of Yosuke Ueno’s ‘Beautiful Noise’ and Ariel DeAndre’s ‘Chasing the Current’ was filled with lots of familiar faces. Both artists’ work is inspired by the Japanese religion of Shinto that is based in details and appreciation of nature.  Take some time to stroll about our gallery taking in the detail of these rich and beautiful paintings. Also don’t forget to catch up on our interviews with Yosuke Ueno and Ariel DeAndrea.

Both shows are on view till June 13th.
For more details please visit the Thinkspace Gallery website.

Opening Night of Seth Armstrong and Erik Jones

It was a packed house the opening night of Seth Armstrong’s “The Air Is Thick” and Erik Jones’ “Color|Full“. Robert Williams even paid Thinkspace a visit after a full day of book signings up at LAMAG. Both exhibits remain on view through April 18th, so please swing on by if you missed the opening reception. The shows really demand in person viewing to best appreciate them, from the numerous hidden details in Armstrong’s paintings to the three-dimensional aspects in Jones’ new works. Visit our Flickr account  for full coverage of opening night and below are a few of our favorite shots.
