Michael Mogavero presents new work at Co-Lab Projects' N Space. The exhibition will be on display November 21, 2014 – January 7, 2015.

From the Co-Lab website:

The new paintings seem to contain similar complexities that are exhibited in most institutional dialogues whether social, political, or academic. Gnarly, unruly forms, struggling to reconcile each other punctuate spatial moments of harmony and equilibrium. The intuitive nature of the paintings reinforce these qualities and allow the viewer direct contact with the visual and musical pulse of language.

Raw Paw presents I like the Eath, an exhibition of photographs by Cameron Coffman (BFA candidate in Studio Art) and Bucky Miller (MFA candidate in Studio Art) at Salvage Vanguard Theater.

Starting from different corners of photography, Coffman and Miller each make pictures that see little distinction between what is normal in the world and what makes absolutely no sense at all. Intermingled, their pictures become a sequence of questions around the disorder of the day-to-day and how that might relate to both our origins and our future.
