Studios Member Cara Farnan is currently showing work in Side Street, Locker Gallery, Department of Fine Arts, Washington State University, Washington, USA.
WSU Fine Arts Locker Gallery presents Side Street, a collection of Instagram images exploring everyday observations along urban spaces. The exhibition is curated by recent WSU Master of Fine Arts graduate, Krista Brand, and features fourteen artists across five continents, connected only through social media. Side Street considers the possibility of the extraordinary in the ordinary, the presence/absence of the figure, and social media sharing as community art practice. This exhibition bridges between the 2017-18 Fine Arts programming theme of ‘Shifting Landscapes’ and the 2018-19 theme of ‘The Body: Power, Meaning & Representation in Contemporary Art.’
Side Street is on view from July 20 – August 24

Studio member Sarah Wren Wilson recently exhibited her solo show A Meddlesome Meeting at the Sunburst Gallery in the Ards Art Centre, Newtownards.
A Meddlesome Meeting is an exhibition that considers the role of painting in contemporary art and what defines it. In these artworks, plaster is used to cast individual panels that resemble paintings. They investigate how the unconventional use of plaster can change both our understanding and categorisation of an artwork. The pieces created are hybrids, caught between the act of painting and sculpture. The compositions seek to offer snippets of structures and systems, translated in an on-going visual dialogue of abstracted forms.
