This visual arts group show by Iranian women features photography, mixed
media, drawing and sculpture. Iran is a millenia-old nation made up of
many cultures and multiple stories. Those cultures and those stories have
been transported with women who brought their roots to this country, to
remember those cultures, patterns and surroundings and recreate them
in their art.

Out of Joint – Small Drawings

by Karen Schiff

November 22, 2019 – February 23, 2020

Opening Reception: Thursday, December 12th, 6-8PM
Closing Reception/Artist Talk: Sunday, February 23rd, 5-7PM

These playing-card-sized drawings, made with graphite and watercolor pencil, twist and pull at the classic forms of the modernist grid. Space is revealed to be delightfully unpredictable and lumpy, no longer smoothly consistent or mathematically measurable. The exhibition title derives from a line from Shakespeare’s Hamlet: the beleaguered title character laments, “The time is out of joint.” But the drawings add a touch of humor, as their forms persist in singing a bit “off-key”.

The work is, in turn, exuberant, mysterious and unpredictable..
