Join us for the newest shows coming to Light Grey this spring! We have four brand new exhibitions that celebrate the concepts of renewal, botany, forests, and our relationship with the natural world. The show opening Friday March 23rd from 7-10pm, features over 100 creatives that delve into the various expressions of the season!
Arboretum Exhibition about Botany: Genetics, Enchanted Forests, and Designed Garden Spaces. The importance of trees goes way beyond their mythology. The rich ecosystems within old growth forests are expansively diverse and complex. The woodlands help provide infinite habitats for creatures, support highways of connective fungal networks which transport energy, nutrients, and information through the forest floor.
The Arboretum Exhibition features original and framed work by 70 creatives from around the world. The work includes illustrations, small drawings, plein air paintings, and expressive botanical images that explore the botany of trees, natural patterns, curated spaces, mythology in the forest.
Campfire Comics and Stories is a risograph-printed anthology zine published by Dennis Madamba and Kyle Harabedian that features work by fourteen international artists. Each artist takes a turn telling a story around the campfire. The theme is “Based on a True Story” and artists comics feature intimate moments, conversations over tea, train rides, and memorable personal narratives -- a lovely collection of illustrated stories.
Resurgence Exhibition is a small collection of prints, screen prints and art originals that are all about the return of vibrance and energy that once was lost. As the grey winter comes to a close, all matter of flora and fauna emerge from their dormant states to take on the new season with a burst of color and purpose. In Resurgence, artists create new work inspired by the concepts of spring, renewal, and potential.
The Flush of Spring collection at Light Grey Art Lab celebrates a metaphysical time of change, of rebirth, of flux. This exhibition features makers whose work is itself fluid, active, poetic, and experimental, where the work shown exemplifies the idea of rebirth through the process of creating new paintings, comics, and offset prints. Spring is a time where a sleepy veil is lifted from all that is organic; our psyches leave their hibernation, the muscles of our bodies release their tension. The imagery conjured by this state of re-awakening speaks of rediscovering elemental oneness with the earth around us, of finding new love in the mundane, and of reconnecting with the experiential.
The opening is free and open to the public- come on by to support the artists!
The artwork will be on display through April 20th and available through the Light Grey Shop.
