Process and Practice
Curated by Evonne M. Davis
Opening Reception April 6, 7-10 PM

Process and Practice honors the Aferro Studio Residency Program that has welcomed more than 100 artists to multi-floor studio workspaces since 2006 to conceptualize, build, and toil over their next creation. Their artist-originated organization seeks to celebrate the many creative minds who have passed through the doors of 73 Market St as studio residents and continue to contribute as mentors, touchstones and provocateurs. Bringing together past and current residents, Gallery Aferro wants to highlight their diverse accomplishments, energy and talent with the creative community they represent, in part, on a national and sometimes global stage.

Folding the Line: Anne Q. McKeown
Curated by Evonne M. Davis
Opening Reception April 6, 7-10 PM
Eleta J. Caldwell and Rodney M. Gilbert Memorial Gallery

Folding The Line features a survey of works by Anne Q. McKeown, artist, long-time Aferro Studio resident, world-renowned papermaker, and mentor. This exhibition not only introduces older and newer work as the Gallery takes on its new role as her official curatorial liaison, but it also highlights her restless creativity that never ceases to move, encourage and provoke. In her own words, “I am not looking to create an order. I am recording a moment of being.”

Elevator Music 5: Daniel Shaw
Curated by Juno Zago
Opening Reception April 6, 7-10 PM
Gallery Aferro, 2nd Floor Installation

Elevator Music 5: Daniel Shaw, curated by Juno Zago, invites visitors to step inside Gallery Aferro’s early-1900s refurbished Otis Elevator and experience Shaw’s world: upbeat instrumental music created from unlikely and imaginative sound palettes. At times, the music is aggressive; others, it is sprawling and melodic. Shaw, gifted a guitar at the age of four, learned to play by ear from rock and metal, going on to play guitar, bass and drums in rock and punk bands. He credits drumming with leading to songwriting: he has been writing original music for more than 30 years.
