‘The Shape of Things’ July 1 – August 6, 2022

‘The Shape of Things’ July 1 – August 6, 2022

‘Clouds’ (detail) sculpture by Kevin Donegan

The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery is honored to host an exhibition many months in the making. The title, ‘The Shape of Things’ feels even more poignant now as we struggle to make sense of our world, how we express ourselves, and how we may work together as a community to lift each other up in the face of oppression and seemingly insurmountable challenges. Gallery Director, Christy Mitchell, approached four artists in the past year to participate in a show simply about shape. These artists create work that plays with geometry and with patterns that literally or figuratively appear to float off the standard 2-D frame.

Kevin Donegan, an artist working just down the street, joins us from a recent residency at the Vermont Studio Center. Donegan states, “The intent of this installation is to create an environment which feels ominous and potentially dangerous, but also beautiful and serene. Touching on themes of climate change, escapism, and the slippery nature of perception, it attempts to engage viewers viscerally and intellectually, and is rooted in the artist’s desire to affect change.” 

‘It’s Ok’ sculpture by Kevin Donegan

Will Patlove has been exhibiting with us from time to time for a decade and we thoroughly enjoy his playful interpretation of what the shape of a painted surface can be. Bent and manipulated pieces covered in canvas or carved and cut wood become multi-faceted planes in which Patlove applies his minimalist color palettes.

Frank Tamasi is a newer artist to The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery and creates meticulous geometric pieces by hand (without tape or straight edges) feeling each line and selecting each color deliberately. Tamasi states that, “Color theory plays a vital role in my work allowing me to express inner-energies that otherwise leave me at a loss of words….The layering of colors immerse you deeper and deeper as you look at it longer. It creates an experience that not only brings light into any room, but ignites an emotion internally through the vibrations.”

Haley Fenn expresses herself through form, both with one of a kind jewelry and with sculptures that play with hard geometric edges and softer shapes and palettes. Fenn’s work draws you in, you notice it in any room, as if the work has something to say and it will tell you if you just listen long enough. A first time showing with us, we are thrilled to host a series of her sculptures in this exhibition.

‘All the Feels’ Open Fridays & Saturdays at Space Gallery!

All the Feels’ Opening Receptions on Friday, February 18 & First Friday Art Walk March 4 from 5 – 8pm

Exhibition Duration: February 18 – March 26, 2022

‘All the Feels’ asked artists to submit work that exudes emotion; whether felt during the creation process, in the content of the piece, or when the viewer takes in some of that brooding or underlying excitement. It’s been a tough couple of years and we wanted to see how that is processed through artwork. Creation is cathartic, and can be gorgeous and/or disturbing. We all want to feel connected and artwork bridges many paths. The response was enormous, with a showing by 60 artists from Vermont and New Hampshire, exhibiting over 100 works! The pieces are incredibly diverse, with affordable price points for everyone. Support the arts and enjoy!
