Invisible College

July 11 - September 27
Adrian Falkner, "Untitled (dummy dove masala) 2015"
Invisible College explores the aesthetics of a movement that has devised its own course; one that has been largely defined outside of institutional contexts. Moving away from the standard art education model that demands graduate school, an excess of critical rhetoric and an art world careerism, these artists, many of whom are self-taught, have sought their own inspiration and voice instead, drawing on everything from popular culture and social media platforms, to street art, murals and graffiti. This group exhibition is co-curated by Andrew and Shawn Hosner of Los Angeles’ Thinkspace Gallery, and Josef Zimmerman of the Fort Wayne Museum of Art. The exhibition will feature new and representative works by 46 artists belonging to the New Contemporary movement.

Dennis McNett: Legend of the Wolfbat

May 30 - August 23, 2015
Creatures from McNett’s Wolfbat woodblock series have been exhibited around the world and three-dimensional versions have even been featured in New Orleans parades and Barney’s department store windows in New York City. McNett’s highly imaginative works focus on creatures from Nordic mythology and are inspired in part by the 80s skateboarding and punk rock scene.
