The founding principles of equality and liberty are the hallmark of pluralistic American democracy. State Of The Union presents work by artist Sol Hill, made of shredded and altered American flags recast as symbols of the fragile state of our democracy. These are not desecrations but courageous attempts to look unflinchingly at the damage that extreme polarization and vilification of our fellow citizens has inflicted on the body politic. 

James R. Lane’s ambitious exhibit EYECU – an exhibit of animal art from the animals’ perspective, offers the audience with a new view of a familiar subject. This exhibit of animal art is to be viewed through two perspectives – human eye level and animal eye level.

Susan Ossman’s new paintings that make up her exhibition In the Wash depict laundry drying in the open air. The exhibition invites contemplation on ecology, invisible labor and lost forms of sociability. . It also conjures parallels between old ways of life and the ancient art of painting.

In 2015, painter/sculptor/photographer, Don Porter, was called to the future to begin recording our planet’s fate. From the hundreds of images, he has sent to us thus far, Gaia distilled this exhibition, Matricide – Destiny Manifested.
