Laura Cloud

RE(Tracing) Morocco”       Opening  Fri. March 3,  6-9pm

Laura Cloud – RE(Tracing) Morocco is the result of a residency program I attended during the summer of 2016 at Green Olive Arts located in Tetouan, Morocco. During the nineteen seventies, I had the experience of living in Morocco for two years. While in residence, I revisited and documented contemporary Morocco through photo, video, sound recordings, journal entries, and drawings. RE(Tracing) Morocco layers past experiences, memories, personal history, etc. the contemporary.

A special thank you to both Green Olive Arts for providing me with a studio and time to be creative and Michigan State University’s College of Arts and Letters for awarding me a Summer Research Fellowship.

Collett Hudecek

“Blurred Memories”       Opening  Fri. Jan. 6,  6-9pm

Blurred Memories is a body of work that Hudecek likes to equate to the inverse of photorealism. Instead of creating a painting to reproduce a photograph, she creates a photograph to imitate a painting. These photographs are made to resemble a painting in which crisp details and sharp focus have been disregarded to evoke a faded memory in a single frame. Memories can often be tricky and imprecise.  These images are reminiscent of a distant memory in which the intimate details have long faded in time, but the emotion fueling the memory remains unforgettable. She disposes of the details the way our faded memories tend to forget specifics. The colors, shapes, and shadows mold into an image capable of inducing the emotions attached to these distant memories. The lack of focus creates broad strokes of color and light while capturing recognizable gestures and scenes of familiar images.

Opening:     Friday January 6 from 6-9pm

Exhibition dates:     January 4 – 28, 2016

Gallery hours:     Thurs-Sat 12-6pm    Sunday 12-4pm

Ryan Bourque

“People in Place”                  Opening  Fri.  Jan. 6,  6-9pm

This exhibit is a selection of small portraits taken from Ryan Bourque’s work in Street Photography. The focus is the connection that people have to the environment they are in, as sometimes, a person looks to perfectly synthesize with their surroundings, both physically and mentally, in the moment of exposure.

Opening:     Friday January 6 from 6-9pm

Exhibition dates:     January 4 – 28, 2016

Gallery hours:     Thurs-Sat 12-6pm    Sunday 12-4pm

Caitlin Carter

“Digital Abstract Prints”   Opening Fri. Jan. 6,  6-9pm

The digital prints in this collection are deeply personal abstract pieces created while rehabilitating from shoulder surgeries during 2014-2015. The aesthetics were influenced by post-modern design, ancient symbols and typography. The overarching approach to much of her work is a mirrored/unmirrored culmination of Heaven, Hell and everything in-between.

Opening:     Friday January 6 from 6-9pm

Exhibition dates:     January 4 – 28, 2016

Gallery hours:     Thurs-Sat 12-6pm    Sunday 12-4pm
