March 2018: ‘In The Moment’ collage work by Ashley Roark, Barbee Hauzinger, and Christy Mitchell

In The Moment

Collage Work by Ashley Roark, Barbee Hauzinger, and Christy Mitchell

March 2 – 31, 2018

Opening Reception:
First Friday Art Walk, March 2nd from 5 – 9pm

Collage by Barbee Hauzinger – ‘In Search of the Waganauts’

Ashley Roark, Barbee Hauzinger, and Christy Mitchell have much in common; females in their thirties creating collage artwork…though their styles range from minimalism to conceptual, crossing a wide spectrum of time and eras with their materials and visual media.

Collage by Ashley Roark – ‘Balances’

Ashley Roark sees paper as a place holder for memories. These assemblages create a language through the layering and manipulation of materials. Roark uses inspiration from typography to create form, space and movement. Her work utilizes vintage paper, acrylic paint, gouache, graphite, and wax. This new series illustrates Roark’s current experimentation with an expanded color palette, adding new elements of pale pink and sienna to her traditionally muted tones.

Collage by Barbee Hauzinger – ‘LIFE Magazine September 14, 1962’

Barbee Hauzinger uses collage as a way to actualize a landscape, a scene, and a place in time that could never be captured through her other creative passion, photography, exclusively with paper from vintage books and magazines.

In her ‘Where You’d Want to Be Series’, Hauzinger creates familiar yet curious scenes; snapshots that exude a sense of strange sense of nostalgia for the viewer.  The landscapes themselves are beautiful; star studded skies, ethereal heavenly bodies, pristine wildernesses. Yet there is something eerie and off about them, like these places may just be too good to be true.

The second series, ‘Age of Ads’ goes about dissecting and exploring American consumerism and commercialism through the use of ads from a single piece of print material. The piece featured above from this series uses only one magazine, LIFE Magazine September 14, 1962, dissecting the moment in time to one message; utopia can be created if you just buy the correct products.

Collage by Christy Mitchell – ‘Traffic Jam Uptown’ (detail)

Christy Mitchell creates a sense of nostalgia in her collages through the use of color and imagery printed in magazines from the late 40’s – early 70’s, though the artist herself never lived in those decades. Her choice of settings and the people depicted appear as if in a scene or a still of an imagined movie. Utilizing media from those specific eras, the content was ‘of the moment’ in those years, though when placed in fresh compositions the work takes on a new life, commenting on broader implications of our current place within society and with each other. The work is at times comforting, as though you could just go back ‘there’, paired with a voice in the back of your head, asking, ‘are you sure that you want to?’

Current Exhibition, ‘Don’t Be A Stranger’ by Christy Mitchell & 100th Show at Space!

‘Don’t Be A Stranger’

Annual Solo Exhibition by Gallery Director, Christy Mitchell

It’s The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery’s 100th Month of Continuous Shows!

Exhibition Duration: November 3 – 25, 2017

‘Don’t Be A Stranger’ photography series by Christy Mitchell taken by Luke Awtry

Each November, The Space Gallery Director, Christy Mitchell, recounts her past year with a conceptual solo exhibition in the form of an autobiographical installation using various media. The work is presented in such a way that the viewer may also see themselves in the story line, identifying with broader concepts of social interaction, relationships, and human or cultural experiences.

Manipulated Vintage Rotary Phones by Christy Mitchell

Following 2016’s ‘IRL’, a story about finding love in the digital age, ‘Don’t Be A Stranger’ is a telling of just how arduous dating ‘in real life’ can be. Modern terms such as ‘ghosting’ reference the tired game of waiting by the phone for someone who may never call. Mitchell uses vintage rotary phones, collage, photography, and set design in a palette which compliment a mid-century era noir film aesthetic, a thriller in fact, asking who done it?

‘Don’t Be A Stranger’ photography series by Christy Mitchell taken by Luke Awtry

There is an ever present power flow within the context of the ritual of dating. The one with the power to shoot someone down, the one who takes that power back by denying the dominance of the other….who is holding the gun? …or sent that last message?

Call to Artists: ‘Dark Matter’ A Juried October Exhibition

‘Dark Matter’

A Juried Dark Arts Exhibition at The Space Gallery

The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery is thrilled to host our annual ‘dark arts’ exhibition this October with ‘Dark Matter’, juried and curated by gallery director, Christy Mitchell. She relishes in the opportunity to get creepy with you!

‘Dark Matter’, in a scientific sense, has never been directly observed; however, its existence would explain a number of otherwise puzzling astronomical observations. We ask that you consider how existence and puzzling realities…and fantasies, play in to your own work and interpretation of the universe. In a psychological sense….what makes you think, makes you question, terrifies you…or others. Do you find beauty in death, in quiet alleys, and in the dark nights of your soul? Do you feel that we may be in the new ‘dark ages’ with regards to our environment or political climate?

Is your work just simply, beautifully, dark…with seriousness or humor?

Show us. We can’t wait to see.

Applications accepted now until midnight on September 30th, 2017, as we slither into October. Muwahahaha

Jeff Howlett – 
Live Tintypes Booth, $50 a plate/tintype for Patrons of the Event
Introduced in the mid-19th century, each tintype photograph is individually created by coating, sensitizing, exposing and developing metal plate as the subject sits for the portrait session. Many Civil War era photographs were created with this historic technology, which provides a hauntingly beautiful and permanent image especially suitable for heirloom portraits of individuals, families, and bands.

‘Sojourn’ – New Work by Sage Tucker-Ketcham and Dana Heffern

April First Friday Art Walk –
‘Sojourn’ at The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery

New Work By Sage Tucker-Ketcham and Dana Heffern

Curated By Wylie Sofia Garcia and Christy Mitchell

April 7 – 29, 2017

Opening Reception: First Friday Art Walk April 7, 5-9pm

‘Flat House’ by Dana Heffern, photography

Statement on ‘Soujourn’:

Temporality is the theme that unites new work by artists Sage Tucker-Ketcham and Dana Heffern. Evoking a sense of impermanence and longing these artists explore in painting and photographic media the double edge of loneliness: what it means to want to be alone and what it means to feel lonely. Tucker-Ketcham’s work focuses on the spatial relationships of objects in the form of a dialogue between entry-less houses and the manicured landscape. Where in Heffern’s, photographs ask the viewer to engage in categorizing the mundane to bring meaning to the otherwise overlooked landscape. In the duality of ‘Soujourn’, the artists use the landscape as a parallel between introspection and fantasy. This reflects that what one sometimes desires is not often the reality of what one experiences.

‘Lonely House’ by Sage Tucker-Ketcham, oil

Sage Tucker Ketcham’s new works are small, intimate and tangible oil paintings on stretched canvas. They’re primarily focused on using color and light to create balance and blur the line between observation and the abstraction of nature. Rolling hills, barns, houses, clouds, trees and the transition of season are part of each painting, not of an exact place but a reference to a place. They are personal narratives, a timeline and a reference to relationships, and a fantasy of place and a way of being. Each small painting is portable and becomes a personal object. They are an efficient cluster of communities in relation to the intentional quiet.

‘Broom’ by Dana Heffern, photography

Dana Heffern’s photographic work is a study of solitary places, overlooked snow detritus, and forgotten moments in time within winter. As a witness, Heffern testifies on behalf of the ignored and forgotten objects and landscapes that present to us in our everyday. The ordinary thing is often viewed as ugly or unworthy, but she sees the interstitial spaces people inhabit as divine. These spaces may go unrecognized, but they are the very glue that tethers us, as we sleepwalk through moments to whatever distraction comes next– these spaces will still be here as a lonely support that carries us from mundane reality to chosen fantasy.
