The Collective Experiment
The Poor Man's Art Collective and Things Feel Heavy present: "The Collective Experiment", a Carr Center Duo-exhibition featuring on-site art installations. This exhibition explores the idea of 'The Art Collective' by looking at how artists function within collectives, how two different collectives function independently in the same city. The idea being that collectives are not just about collaboration, but also about expansion and inclusion, as well as individuality within the larger group.

Mark Newport: Stitches Opening Reception
"Stitches" presents all new works, and it is Mark Newport's first solo exhibition at the gallery. "These works begin when I cut a hole into the cloth. The hole is then filled by weaving with needle and thread. The repairs are made using traditional textile darning and mending techniques learned from studying European and American mending samplers. Whether the area of repair is immediately visible or camouflaged, mending these holes leaves a scar that speaks of vulnerability, intimacy, and futility." Newport is the Artist-in-Residence and Head of Fiber at the Cranbrook Academy of Art.

Opening Reception, Saturday January 13th, 6-9pm.  [Midtown, Detroit]
444 W. Willis St.

Jeff Cancelosi "Still On The Journey"
Every drawing is a step towards another. Please join me for "Still On The Journey" as I look back to earlier days as a frame for the work I am making now. Through the years, I've retained my love of our enigmatic faces. My art has evolved from ink drawings to ink stamps to tapes that can be bought in hardware stores. I don't know what my next faces will be, but looking forward to taking that path! This is a one-night public opening. If you'd like to view the show another time, message me and we can set up an appointment.
