Ground Floor Gallery is pleased to present our 6th Annual Juried Exhibition, Rhythm & Rush. This show comprises the work of 23 National and International Artists selected by our Juror, Catherine Haggarty, a painter and Co-Founder of Ortega y Gasset Projects.
Please join us for the artists’ reception, art book presentation (produced by R.D King and Extended Play) on September 8th 6-9 pm.
"The selection of these artists for Rhythm & Rush spans paintings, sculptures and mixed media. Each artist has such a unique and specific connection to their materials and subject that I felt strongly reflected the ethos of the show’s title. The most beautiful thing about the work and the diversity in the artists in this show is that it speaks to the very human element of language and of connection. Each artist is making work in very different regions and in very different ways. It makes perfect sense to me, that some pieces are figurative, some purely abstract and some hedging between these two spectrums. I envision this show and these pieces as championing a very personal perspective and steady pace. Rhythm and Rush shows us that in 2018, there is not one language in art making that triumphs - rather a multitude of efforts, of attention and of diverse formal solutions & reactions to the pace of the world today.” --Catherine Haggarty
