This year’s First Gear show features two young artists working with, through, and beyond women as subject and construct. Hilary Greenstein’s female figures appear simultaneously anachronistic and timeless. Recontextualized into simplified, abstracted environments, clear narratives fall away, moving closer to the realm of fevered dream. Tiffany Lange removes women as subject altogether, instead reflecting on and reimagining traditional gender constructs as she manipulates two dimensional canvas into three. As traditional women’s sewing and crafting techniques play within a backdrop of colors and patterns of 90s pop culture, Lange’s wholly contemporary, sculptural paintings capture the ambiguity and empowerment of what it means to be a young woman in today’s world.
Show runs through June 16.
Thursdays & Fridays 3:00-7:00 pm
Saturdays & Sundays noon-4:00 pm
Other times by appointment or happenstance

MANUAL TRANSMISSION|Second Gear
New work by Derek Meier
MANUAL TRANSMISSION moves into Second Gear with Memory Palaces, a solo show of abstract paintings by Derek Meier. Integrating painting and collage techniques, these beautiful and visually compelling works are a rich feast of color and texture, often including pared down geometric forms and symbology that suggest an urban landscape, while remaining unpredictable and hard to pin down. Meier’s unselfconscious, experimental approach involves an immediacy of layered applications and subsequent evaluative removal, creating a composition and style uniquely his own and wholly contemporary.
