ANDREW RICE  the space between us
In the space between us, and throughout his entire collection, (re)Structured, Rice has created an emotional state of being that brings you layers deep-quite literally. Created with oil sticks and a printmaking background to create visual 3D doorways and geometrical barriers, the space between us asks where you find yourself within each piece, and in what ways are we all connected?

Everything around us is comprised of layers: our bodies, our architecture, our society, our minds. Those layers, so carefully constructed, are all works of art. Some layers are meant to be shed, slowly and carefully. Others are meant to let us sink into other-worldly places. Some even ask us to reimagine ourselves, both within and outside of a painting. Andrew Rice, Berna Reale, and Cara Krebs have unique ways to demonstrate the feeling of being "layers deep," both figuratively and literally.

Berna Reale's Untitled

Untitled coveys a somber depiction of "de-layering" as Reale's body is slowly stripped of protective clothing and she is carried, naked, throughout the city by fully-clothes men. Implementing strong visual elements and satirical social commentary on patriarchy, Reale's performance sheds light hidden truths of Brazilian reality, and provokes audiences to consider their own personal and societal conflicts of the universal topics that she addresses such as patriarchy, consumerism, capitalism, and more.


Sehnsuct : A gallery of floating, moving, and captivating pieces that pull you into their realm.

Using Jell-O skins, whimsical imagery, and a water installation, Krebs brings her audience into a realm of fantasy and the unknown. Quivering sculptures will leave you mesmerized, while in next room, her water installation gives one the sinking feeling of falling into the sea. Krebs invites us to wander through her constructed fantasy world, a world that leaves us longing for both the familiar and the unknown and asks us to reclaim our imaginations.

Family Art Saturday: Collagraph
SEP 10 | 2 PM

Andrew will also be the focus of our Family Art Saturday: Collagraph (Object Printmaking) on Septeber 10th. Future artists will learn how to create collagraphs using aterials that range from mesh to food products-and the best part? Kids get to take home their masterpiece at the end of the workshop and display their very own, unique collagraph! 



When creating a collection of work, Andrew Rice tends to have more of an overarching theme rather than thinking of pieces as individual. During the creation of (re)Structured, Rice was interested in the juxtaposition between protection and barriers. "Take for instance, this table between us," he says. "It separates us and provides a barrier, but it prevents another layer of connection in many ways. These man-made constructions that keep us comfortable also keep us isolated in a way. It prevents our access to surrounding environments. I wanted to address that idea, but in a different way."
