Adele Eustis and Cass Nevada are very pleased to offer a show that will engage your senses and your imagination. In Nest: a question of place, Adele Eustis presents drawings, paintings and sculpture that explore the concept of nesting–the architecture and metaphor, the flat out beauty and wonder of a nest. Her work expresses a very personal and finely wrought exploration of nests, those “marvelous and resourceful structures” that speak volumes about comfort, security and refuge.
Cass Nevada’s This home we share is an artist book that uses graphic narrative to expand the notion of home as an urban habitat. The graphite images invite a recreation of the narrative in the imagination. Wordless story telling stands as a counterpoint to our noisy, sometimes overwhelmingly demanding social environment, and can be experienced much like a puzzle that is pieced together in a non-linear fashion. The process of creating the 25 foot accordion book is explored through sketches and miniature models, as well.
Opening night reception with both artists is Thursday, July 5th from 5 to 8pm–we hope you’ll survive that most explosive of American holidays and come by to enjoy the show.
Shift Collaborative Studio is located upstairs from Gibson, down the street from Kucera, round the block from several very worthy galleries–all in the hood:
