There may have been some rumors and rumblings recently about changes at Flatbed. Yes, there have been changes and all for the better! We are pleased to announce that Gallery Shoal Creek has relocated to the Flatbed Building and our 02 Galleries have been remodeled for "Indie" produced exhibitions. Flatbed's own gallery and offices spaces are also undergoing a face lift and monthly exhibitions are being planned for the coming year featuring vignettes of featured Flatbed artists. Meanwhile back in the studio, projects are underway and new publications are coming.
This Friday, April 19 from 6 until 8 pm in conjunction with three other galleries, Flatbed announces the Grand Openings of four separate exhibitions in the Flatbed Building.
In Flatbed's Gallery hangs The Lightness of Being, an exhibition of Joan Winter's etchings created at Flatbed Press and her remarkable sculpture. Her work is influenced by contemporary Japanese architecture, especially spaces emphasizing light and transparency as primary elements. Apart from Winter's exhibition, Flatbed is also showing the polymer photogravure prints of John Winter, etchings and woodcuts by James Surls, Julie Speed's hand-colored etchings and new prints by Suzi Davidoff.
Gallery Shoal Creek's owner and director, Judith Taylor, has created a truly urban and sophisticated space within our walls that will serve to beautifully present the work by the artists she represents. This Friday's opening will feature exhibitions by Jennifer Bell, Imagination, Gregg Kreutz, Mystery & Light, and Tony Saladino, Movement and Color. This is a must see exhibition and a real celebration for their new and expanded space.
The same evening RSquared Art Management opens Gestural Abstractions in the 02 North Gallery at the Flatbed Building, The exhibition showcases emerging artists Padaric Kolander, Paul Meyer, and Blake Bush. Their new work will be on display until May 11, 2013.
Gracing our east 02 Gallery is Oscar Silva, Past Life, a retrospective exhibition curated by Studio2Gallery. This exhibition will be up until April 24.
We hope to see you at Flatbed this Friday evening. It is a night not to be missed.
