Opening reception Friday, July 11, 5:30-7:30 pm, with a talk by the artists at 6:30 pm.
Graham Yeager: Making Adjustments
Graham Yeager's sculptures in steel and wood are finished with a palette of strong, vibrant color. While he was trained in ceramics, Yeager has embraced a wide range of materials and enjoys exploring the possibilities inherent in different media. Each of his pieces is dynamic: parts move, pull apart, or rearrange, encouraging actions that suggest simple machines, tools, jewelry, or toys. Although they can be enjoyed purely as visual statements, Yeager feels his sculptures are strongest when they entice viewers to interact.
Tyler Robbins: Anatomy of a Weekend
Tyler Robbins's photomontages are a fresh offshoot of his photographic series focused on the suburbs' landscapes, rituals, and citizenry. Fascinated by the culture and identity of American suburbanites, he has focused his lens on new housing developments, cookouts, garages, and lawns. In his large-scale photomontages, Robbins isolates familiar objects like lawnmowers, hoses, and coolers, and combines them into playful, graphic arrangements.
