Artists take viewers behind the scenes of their studio practice with insights into their processes, inspirations and artwork. This series is an initiative to support local artists and give viewers the opportunity to take a closer look at art practices and ask questions to contemporary artists.

Presenting abstract paintings and drawings by the New York City-based artist John Torreano. With the universe as muse, Torreano combines realism infused with abstraction to create works that pull us into the mysteries and wonders of the cosmos aided by images from the Hubble Space Telescope. The balls, gems, and paint on plywood are ingredients for lively, passionate and beautiful pieces.

Chicago-based artist Nyeema Morgan poetically reflects on the articulation of 21st-century dichotomies of gender and power in her exhibition: objectivity and subjectivity; agency and powerlessness; offense and defense.

Christina Battle’s practice looks at the role of the micro-gesture in order to consider how small, intimate actions might collectively foster change on a societal level. In light of the US 2020 centennial celebration of the passage of the 19th Amendment, as well as the 2020 presidential election, this exhibition questions why and how our contemporary framing of elections manifest in a sense of political disengagement.

Steven Frost is an artist and educator based in Boulder, where he has been instrumental in spreading the transformative nature of weaving and textiles through popular, community-based gatherings. His approach combines narrative elements of personal memorabilia with queer culture, and the results take craft sensibilities into formally engaging visual territory. Frost’s influences include everything from suburban kitsch to Anni Albers’ textiles, and his experimentation extends from the center of these disparate concepts.
