Ruiz-Healy Art is pleased to present Minding the Gaps, a two-person exhibition featuring works by Nate Cassie and Constance Lowe. The exhibition will open to the public with a reception on Wednesday, June 5, 2019, from 6:00 - 8:00 PM.
Working within the realm of sculpture, Nate Cassie and Constance Lowe come together in an exhibition that explores domesticity by pairing fabricated objects of wood, fabric, leather, and calfskin with arrangements of ceramic pieces. Lowe’s altered familiar objects occupy a perceptual space between abstraction and representation and imaginative space that contrasts familiarity with permutation. Similarly, Cassie’s thematic practice centers on the gaps that distance surface from volume, skin, and structure, formal and intuitive systems. By exploring the thresholds of perception and the “spaces in between” what we see, and imagine, both artists invite multi-dimensional encounters with material and form.
Constance Lowe was an artist resident at the Artpace International Artist in Residence Program and received a San Antonio Artist Foundation award. Solo or two-person exhibitions of her work include the Phoenix Art Museum, AZ; Widener Gallery, Trinity College, Hartford, CT; Forum for Contemporary Art, St. Louis, MO; Richard Hill Rogers Gallery, Southwest School of Art, San Antonio, TX; Main Art Gallery, University of Texas at San Antonio; Artpace, San Antonio, TX; Hawn Gallery, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, TX, and Monash University, Caulfield, Australia.
