Push the boundaries…

Dare to toggle between 2 dimensions and create an artwork with imprecise boundaries!
The painting that has sculptural aspects…
The sculpture that has painterly qualities…

…David Smith did that when he ground designs into his metal surfaces.
Calder when his “stabiles” inspired his “mobiles”. Collage artists do it
all of the time. Ellsworth Kelly did it when he made his colors and
forms vibrate off the canvas… Malevich’s “White on White” dispensed
with most of the characteristics of representational art with little to
no sense of color, just brush strokes and shadows.
Sculptural forms integrate many objects and present startling visuals to
view or interact with… computers animate and are a whole new dimension entirely.
Create your personal

Challenge the viewer to “see” a bit differently.  Be it light, sound,
surface or kinetic aspects off the palette, chisel, computer or 3D printer
to invite one to experience a bit more.

Let’s see what you’ve got!

Garrison Art Center invites you to submit your expression of 2½D for this year’s smallWORKS Juried Exhibition. 2½bridges two dimensions…not 2D, not 3D. What form will that take through the eyes and hands of painters, sculptors, photographers, video artists, et al? Deadline to apply to midnight, September 30, 2018. Please read the details in the prospectus below and click to apply, or learn more on the website at garrisonartcenter.org.

Colorful, minimalist  still-life paintings created with a palette knife, which leaves a distinctive texture.  Incisions and scrapings, along with pencil and oil pastel marks, trace the creation of the work over time. Light and shadow are key elements in these abstracted scenes of everyday life.  Working over multiple sessions result in traces of previous versions and iterations which allow the viewer to engage in the work on multiple levels.

Eric Toscano's work is the result of an instinctual reaction to materials through using appropriated images, found objects, and nontraditional media juxtaposed in a way that resonate an ongoing inner dialogue.

Art that playfully employs found images, biomorphic shapes, photo transfer and collage in somewhat surreal, abstracted landscapes/cityscapes, enriched with various media such as water color, acrylic, and colored pencil. Nature is a source of joy and also concern.

As a native of Israel, Dganit grew up in a Kibbutz. She moved with her husband to the US in 1992. After years of creating art as a self-taught artist, she became a full time student at UNC Chapel Hill. Moving to Philadelphia, she earned her BFA with honors from the University of The Arts, and MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Art. Currently, she is working in her studio at the Crane Old School in Philadelphia.
In her work she is pulling from her reservoir of life experiences, memories, intuitive processes, and curiosity to construct a “place”, an environment – a landscape. Within it, she aims to present an idea composed of multiple layers, which focuses not only on the physical “being” of land, but also on land as a source of emotional and psychological mood.
