Lisa Hoke:Common Side Effects
October 7- December 4
Co-Curated by Judy Pfaff
Quirky, intensely colored sculptures, giant wall murals and small collages are made from cast off, familiar packaging reclaimed from our mass-produced, consumerist culture. Formerly trash bin detritus, these intricate and labor-intensive creations add gravitas to an ethos of excess and waste. The exhibition features a large-scale, suspended sculpture constructed in the Vertical Gallery.
Lisa Hoke has been featured in more than 25 solo exhibitions and numerous group shows in the United States and internationally. These include “Attention Shoppers,” Pavel Zoubok Gallery, New York, N.Y. (2016); ARTmuse Project, Sarasota Museum of Art, Sarasota, Fla. (2014); North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh, N.C. (2014); Oklahoma City Museum of Art, Ok. (2013); McNay Museum, San Antonio, Tx. (2012); The Michael and Donald Amour Museum of Contemporary Art, Springfield, Mass. (2012) and Elizabeth Harris Gallery, New York, N.Y. (2011);and Galerie Christiane Chassey, Montreal, Quebec.
She is the recipient of a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant and the Edwin Austin Abbey Fellowship from the National Academy Museum, New York. Hoke’s work is in the public collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art; Johnson Museum of Art; Cornell University; Oklahoma City Museum of Art; New Orleans Museum, Louisiana; Orlando Museum, Florida; and D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts, Springfield, Massachusetts, amongst others. In the spring of 2017, Hoke will create a work in the lobby of the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, Memphis, Tennessee.

September 9- February 26
Reception: Friday, September 9, 5-7 p.m.
Lively, abstract paintings executed in mixed media explore the jumbled barrage of everyday life, from random thoughts and mundane experiences to challenging events that saturate our psyche. Colorful, layered patterns, shapes and spaces communicate feelings and ideas left open-ended like puzzles that remain unsolved. Danny graduated with a B.F.A. in painting in 2014 and is in his first year of the M.F.A. program in painting and printmaking at Yale University.
