Artist Reception Saturday, March 28, 3–5 pm: Join us in celebrating the artist’s residency with light refreshments
 

How do we live? We exist simultaneously between seconds that can be apocalyptic and graceful, minutes that are mediocre, and hours that stand still. History records these occurrences in ink, pressed between pages in books, placed above us, out of reach. But a tradition that relies on the mechanical application of time recognition, and groups our experiences into singular episodes with no intersections cannot truly document our lives.

During his residency, Rodney Ewing questions, through text and works on paper, how we view time, memory, and history as linear and isolated constructs instead of concurrent moments. Days and Occasions will consist of text applied directly to walls with graphite. Visitors will be invited to contribute their own “Days and Occasions” by stenciling directly on the wall of the gallery. The goal of the project is to have a physical record of the simultaneous and overlapping nature of our mutual existence.
