The Passing as the fleeting of time, new seasons and new beginnings represents a rebirth. This resurgence is only accomplished with the understanding of life; it’s meaning and its hardships. Ecuadorian-born artist, Jovan Karlo Villalba

Colombian-born artist, Catalina Jaramillo creates an installation that deals with issues raised upon both separation from her partner and her mother’s death. The installation celebrates the obsessive tendencies that some manifest with their loss and grief, it is an accumulation of the memories and objects left behind at times of loss. In reviving those who we’ve lost we learn to accept life’s realities and thus, learn to move on and accept our destiny. The Installation will combine aspects of performance, video, photography, and sculpture.

Sculptor Richard Herzog examines parts of society and nature trying to bring awareness to these elements hoping to alter the viewer’s perceptions and make them look at things differently and consider the world they live in. The sculptures are a combination of a systematic organization of natural forms possessing a chaotic multi-layered visual effect mimicking our world, dominated by its rapid pace and over stimulation. creates cinematic paintings featuring visions of sweeping cataclysmic events. The increasing threat of man-made devastation in forms of biological and nuclear warfare, environmental catastrophe and economic ruin, in conjunction with their magnified portrayal in the media, has created an onslaught of social alarm and has subversively woven feelings of doom into the fabric of present-day life in America.

The Passing will run from July 10, 2010 through September 1st, 2010. Regular gallery visiting hours are from Tuesday to Saturday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information visit
