Nicholas Peterson
Opening-Friday, July 17th, 7-11pm

Nicholas Peterson incorporates his drawings and paintings into found objects, most of which he uncovered while at work in a local greenhouse. Similar to the greenhouse in a bustling metropolis, Nicholas' work explores the infrequent and mostly futile attempts of pre-industrial plant and animal life's re-entry into the post-industrial urban landscape. A coyote in the freezer of a downtown QuizNo's sandwich shop, a miniature gallery in the +Medicine Cabinet+ of a small two bedroom apartment in Bridgeport, a beer, a Smith's mix tape, skateboarding, and mid July heat and humidity.

UP NEXT-Kevin Robinson

Kevin Robinson
Opening Reception: June 19, 7-11pm

The connection between our childhood sense of mirth and wonder and our adult desires for stability and a sense of security are explored in the Medicine Cabinet by Kevin Robinson. His installation, "The Magic Medicine Cabinet" looks back at the games of our childhood and the insecurity of adulthood. By channeling the power of the Magic Eight Ball into the Medicine Cabinet, Robinson hopes to inspire participants, rekindling a sense of wonder into day to day life. He invites participants to concentrate and ask the Magic Medicine Cabinet a yes or no question, open the door and receive the answer.
