Title Synopsis Details
Joseph Peragine: Kingdom Under Glass

EXHIBITION

Kingdom Under Glass explores the relationship between exploration and exploitation. For decades, natural history museums have presented dioramas that were meant to educate patrons, as well as preserve endangered animals or environments. However, these staged spectacles struck the artist as overly utopian and seductive.The paintings in this exhibition question the role of dioramas and society’s perception of these scenes. Each painting highlights the idealized manner in which the specimens are presented, while also calling into question the methods in which they were procured.

Peragine’s work has been shown at venues such as The University of Arizona Museum of Art; Cheekwood Museum of Art; Weatherspoon Museum of Art; and Arizona State University Museum of Art.

Derrick Buisch: Off Season

EXHIBITION

Off Season features imagery culled from pedestrian subjects including maps, album covers, roadside signs, and commercial products. Informed through his practice of maintaining sketchbooks, Buisch creates distinctive images that present an extensive exploration of graphic motifs. Often influenced by aspects of music, such as LPs and zines, Buisch’s paintings and drawings are simultaneously playful, celebratory, and subversive.Buisch’s work has been shown at venues such as Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; Museum of Contemporary Art, Madison, WI; Muscarelle Museum of Art, Williamsburg, VA; The Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore; Mississippi State University, Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University; University of California-San Diego; Knoedler Gallery, NYC; and the London Biennale  August 18 – September 21, 2014
