Our inaugural exhibition Three States, features Matthew Kluber, Kathy McTavish, and James Woodfill,(IA, MN, MO) whose work is related by motion, technology and finally formed by the space it occupies. Also on display will be artwork by all of our other gallery artists.
To paraphrase Dave Hickey, as a gallery, all you need to know is how you want to run it, where you want it to be, and what you want the work you show to look like. We are in Duluth, Minnesota because we want to be, but we show work that we want (you) to see wherever it is from. In our inaugural exhibition titled Three States, we feature artists from three states with work that is related by motion, technology and finally formed by the space it occupies. Each of these artists, Matthew Kluber (Iowa), Kathy McTavish (Minnesota), and James Woodfill (Missouri) share these commonalities, but through painting, projection, motion, and vantage point options give distinctly different viewer experiences. Matthew Kluber is an artist whose “painting (projection)” work investigates the instersecion of painting and digital technology. Kathy McTavish is a media composer, cellist and installation artist whose work blends data, text, code, sound, and abstract, layered moving images. And James Woodfill, an interdisciplinary artist whose work is focused on direct experience through the composition of objects, occurrences and site. In order to fully introduce the gallery during this inaugural exhibition, we also will be showing at least one recent artwork of each of the artists with whom we are currently working. This includes work by James Brinsfield, Peter Granados, Warren Rosser, Eric Sall, Tim White, and others.
