A Night In Venice with The Biennial Project

An Abundance of Caution: The Biennial Project

The latest antics of the phenomenally charismatic and widely feared artists of The Biennial Project, in which the space of Atlantic Works Gallery is reconceptualized as a dynamic workspace to pay homage to (and improve upon) iconography from global popular culture relating to The Biennial Project’s relentless examination of the quest for immortality and stardom within the art world.

Opening Reception/Photo Shoot: Saturday, November 6, from 6-9 pm.

ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS

There are many ways to interpret what “environmental effects” can be. Most people see the environment as the natural world where all living beings live. In that context, “environmental effects” would refer, in our view, to any influence human would have on the natural world, either beneficial or detrimental. Another way to look at what “environmental effects” refers to is the surrounding or conditions that affects humans as they grow or as they live their life.

Sandrine Colson is looking at “environmental effects” as being the changes happening in our earth due to human influences. Her pieces are made up of a mix of flowing colors with textural effects using different acrylic pouring and mixed media techniques showing to us how nature (air, water, earth and fire) evolves as humans continues doing their thing, affecting their surrounding and the seasons in detrimental ways from the microscopic to the macroscopic. A lover of oceans, she constructed a message to all in her display “under the sea,” informing us how pollution and especially plastic affect us and the oceans.

The natural and built environment are our connection to the underlying reality of existence. Due to our actions, intentional or not, our physical environment is changing in ways that make our very existence, and those connections, problematic. Our collective lives are out of balance. In this show, George Shaw continues and complements Sandrine Colson’s explorations from a different perspective. George’s sculpture is a combination of wood panel, paint, glass, metal and found objects.

Opening Reception: Saturday, October 9, from 6-9 pm.

Third Thursday Celebration (Meet the Artists): October 21, from 6-9 pm.

PROCESS

September 4 – 25, 2021

PROCESS

Is it the journey or the outcome that draws you in?

For artist Kristen Freitas, it’s the journey — the process of creating that brings her joy and excitement. During the month of September, Kristen Freitas’s PROCESS explores just that through her fluid painting series and work from invited artists.

Exploring colors and textures have always been a part of Freitas’s work. Her current series dives deeper and explores her new love of fluid painting. The layering and mixing of colors create varying effects — all of which are created instantly during the painting process. Watching the colors and composition mysteriously unfold as the paint pours onto the surface makes the journey the most fascinating part for Freitas.

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 4, from 6-9 pm.

Third Thursday Celebration: Thursday, September 16, from 6-9 pm.
