The Union Hall

A variation on the word homograph, the exhibition Homeograph presents work that attempts to reach towards unifying themes of the reconceptualization, deconstruction, and redefinition of utility and history. The exhibition features the work of Mary Dorfner Hay, Melissa Riggatire, and Crystal Latimer. Their work throughout the space investigates and reconsiders time, events, and space enabling the viewer to experience these phenomena through differing and divergent points of view.
VESSELS IN FIVE DIMENSIONS
June 2–July 27, 2019
Iron Gate Gallery, Touchstone Center for Crafts
1049 Wharton Furnace Rd. Farmington, PA 15437
Vessels in Five Dimensions explores the fluidity between two-dimensional images and three-dimensional forms. Augmenting the static dimensions of height, width, and depth with time and individual perception, both Kovak and Singh create vessels that subvert function while alluding to meaning. Both artists intentionally leave gaps in information. Using the fragments to construct new and more complex narratives, they reform instability into strength and surface into transparency. Kovak’s paintings depict forms whose context has been removed or interrupted. Similarly, Singh’s ceramic forms are carefully pieced together, revealing cavities interrupting their function. The resulting physical and pictorial vessels are not empty bodies but bodies reformed by history, observation, and cognition.
Gallery hours: Thursday through Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
