The “Beautiful Banal” group show explores themes of domesticity, space, time and narratives of the everyday. Those mundane moments often conjure nostalgic imagery and memories of the past.

BACK GALLERY : : ReView by Andrea Sinclair

With inspiration drawn from anonymous vintage home movies, Sinclair breathes life into forgotten or discarded footage by resurrecting moments captured within them. Emotional separateness adds to the mystery of these enigmatic, dream-like images. This allows us to bring our own stories to these works by connecting to a past that essentially does not belong to us. The use of vintage imagery provides a portal from this contemporary life allowing us to drift off into a distant internal place while the world around us keeps moving.

UPSTAIRS GALLERY : : Urban Wonder Years by Brad Pugsly

I have been interested in painting portraits of some of my favorite artists in miniature form on matchstick cards for the past couple of years. They include a mix of past music legends and today’s idols. I combine both vintage and handmade matchstick cards treating them as though they are each unique collectable trading cards.

SIDE GALLERY : Of The Sea by Danielle Dawson

A series of works exploring the ocean environment and the creatures, both friendly and feared which inhabit it. Part real, part fiction.
