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
"Rising & Falling" is an exhibition of epic proportions; focusing on histories, the artist doubles as storyteller with visual narratives that contain compelling tales that span the ages. We invite you to travel through time, from ancient to present day with accounts both real and imagined.
John Charnota, William Connally, Matthew Craven, Elliott Earls, Jessica Frelinghuysen, Christopher Gideon, Aimee Lee, Tiffany Massey and Eric McDade.
Also including work from the private collection of Adrian Hatfield and from the showrooms of Orley Shabahang.
Proportional Scale focused on design, fabrication and formal elements that reference architecture. For our upcoming exhibition, we’re turning from the organization of space to that of time. Rising & Falling looks to the the past, examines the present and predicts the future through explorations in culture, narratives and heritage.
"Proportional Scale" includes work that draws inspiration from architecture. Participating artists employ the principles of art and design, with an emphasis on form and construction. Through material choices and modes of fabrication, these formal elements work in tandem to create larger systems. From simple to complex, these works offer an alternate approach to our understanding of and relationship with the spaces we occupy.
Artists: Christina P. Day, Eric Drury, Emily Duke, Fabio Fernandez, CathlynNewell, Matt Shlian
