Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
December 7, 2018 - January 27, 2019
Opening Reception: Friday, December 7, from 7 to 10 pm
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious: "any quality that is so indescribable that you have no real word to say it with." How can one title a show that is defined by not having any definition? How can you limit an exhibit that aims to provide a conversation between many artists of different styles, ages, and subject matters? Works that one might be afraid to display together, but, when paired, gain new meanings? 

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious explains it while explaining nothing at all. Limited within the walls of the gallery, works of represented and guest artists dialogue with each other, inviting the viewer to create improbable connections. Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious, they are visually striking. A punch of colour amidst the whiteness of the space, and the winter outside. With portraits, flowers, balloons, cats, abstractions, gods,  nudes, and imaginary flags, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious aims to be as surprising, intriguing (and as weird) as it sounds. 

Featuring works by Charlie Edmiston, Claire Sarfeld, David Crompton, David B. Stewart, Madison Tyrell, Marion Landry, Meyvis Araniva, Scott Plear, RCA, Steve Mennie, Tristesse Seeliger, Erik Volet, Gillian Richards, Katy Biele, Kellie Orr, Moody Rose Christopher, Sara Khan, and Vanessa Gidden.
