5th of July Opening
This show is about the day after – the day after the neighborhood block parties; the day after when the smoke and smell of sulfur linger and when the remaining food on the picnic table bakes in the morning sun – the buildup and the break down. This group exhibition includes a diverse range of materials and medias, such as: painting, photo, video, ceramics, and a new large-scale sculpture by New York-based, Smyrna, Georgia-born Charles Harlan. Each work is unified in its exploration of failed promise of the day after.
