projects is excited to bring together two artists, Brooklyn, NY based, Loren
Erdrich and Oakland, CA based, Bunnie Reiss for a collaborative exhibition,
titled “Binding (The Secret Sayers)” which opens Friday, May 2nd with an
opening reception from 7-10pm. The exhibition runs through June 22, 2014.
The two mixed
media artists met five years ago during a residency at the Vermont Studio
Center where they made a connection through their shared philosophy and
practice. Coming from varied approaches, Erdrich and Reiss are both avid makers
whose work is woven together through threads of magic and mysticism. Over the
past month, Reiss relocated to Brooklyn on an ad-hoc residency to work side by
side with Erdrich in preparation for this exhibition.
“Binding (The Secret Sayers)” will feature
both collaborative installations and independent works that were created in
dialogue with each other. Drawing lies at the foundation of Erdrich and Reiss’s
process. It is this first mark, this first line that runs along the surface of
the page, charged with their own stories, that binds them together. The
strength of this magical bond, comes to a pinnacle in their large scale
installation which showcases a two headed coyote emerging from the ground,
symbolizing the power of a third entity created from two joined forces.
During the run of
the exhibition, Butter Projects will hold open hours Friday from 1-5pm and
Saturdays from 1-3pm. Additional hours can be made by appointment, to schedule,

Passion drives both love and
art, producing an intimate bond whether with an artist and their work or
between lovers. “I Like You and I Together” invites artist couples to display
their works, side by side, investigating how a close relationship between two
people might affect the work they're creating. Through art and love, we connect
through shared influences and experiences as well as the differences that draw
us to each other.
On display through March 16, 2013. During the run of the exhibition, Butter will be open Fridays from 1-5pm and
Saturdays from 1-3pm. Additional hours can be made by appointment.
The works in "The Order of Things" speak to the varying methods of collecting, classification, and cataloguing of objects from both natural and man-made sources. The ways in which elements are ordered, deepens our interpretation and understanding of things. Thus providing a platform in which we, the viewer can draw connections among the objects and our own relationship to them.
Exhibiting Artists: Brian Collier, Miroslav Cukovic, Susan Goethel-Campbell, Hyeon Kim, Amy Weiks, Sarah Zimmer
