HELOISA ESCUDERO: IN CONTROL | KAY GALLERY
In this special project exhibition which relies on audience participation, artist Heloisa Escudero presents interactive performances and conceptually based art installations where the viewer is “In Control.” Focused on interaction, reaction, inclusiveness and participation by the audience in the site-specific installation, the Virginia-based artist imagines devices that can erase our phobias, remove our fears, and transform them into tangible art.

CAT GUNN: PRETTY BOY | TERRACE GALLERY
In this recent series of layered abstract paintings, artist Cat Gunn builds up then erases  layers, creating a back-and-forth of additive and subtractive, an accumulation and a diminishing. Hard edges flirt with expressive grounds and fields of color, creating an ambiguous space that is dizzying, strange, and dynamic in self-contained worlds made up of repeating stripes, gradated forms, twisted squiggles, and organic shapes. The quirky geometry and irregularity of patterns allow for vulnerable and imperfect moments, and are equally about sameness as they are about difference.
