THE HIVE MIND DREAMS OF SLEEPING is officially open TOMORROW! Come enjoy these stunning works by

“Symbolically, to dream of sleep can represent polar-opposite scenarios: a feeling of peace rooted in the belief that all is right and well versus being ignorant of/ignoring facts…. During the collective and individual moments of overwhelm, are we dreaming of sleep, or sleeping to dream?”

Zooming in on this geometric, futurist-feeling piece titled “EBLE” from our ongoing exhibition OAZO.

The surfaces of Bellan-Gillen’s irregularly shaped panels bear a tangle of imagery culled from pop-culture and folklore, medieval woodblock prints and iconic fairytale illustrations. Bellan-Gillen’s cast of characters–including Pinnocchio, Humpty Dumpty, and Howdy Doody–vies for attention amongst cherubs, anthropomorphized animals clutching televisions, and jack-o-lanterns on horseback, all nestled in interlacing florals.

Exhibition runs through 8/20!

“When Legend Becomes History/Lone Rangers, Rough Riders, and Dragon Slayers,” on display as part of ongoing exhibition “Words and Other Weapons.” Artist Patricia Bellan-Gillen’s intricate tangle of imagery on shaped panels investigate the stories we tell ourselves, myth-making, the construction histories of heroes. As the title indicates, these narratives (ideology, doctrine, history, it’s heroes—even words themselves) are often be weaponized in defense of those telling the story.

Stop by the gallery to see these strange and elegant pieces in person!

The surfaces of Bellan-Gillen’s irregularly shaped panels bear a tangle of imagery culled from pop-culture and folklore, medieval woodblock prints and iconic fairytale illustrations.

We could not be more excited to announce our next exhibition featuring these large-scale, mixed media assemblages on quilts by multidisciplinary artist Amber Robles-Gordon – up May 28 through July

The work is an interrogation of U.S. policy towards–and governance of–its populated territories and the District of Columbia.

Robles-Gordon creates a communal visual language; one rooted in shared cultural experience and geographical references, drawing upon manifold contexts and traditions: indigenous art, the Washington Color School, personal symbolism, domestic yet culturally essential rituals such quilting and much more.
