THE GARDEN OF ABSOLUTE TRUTHS
Valerie Hird
On view in the Sanger Gallery
Somewhere beyond right and wrong there is a garden. I will meet you there. – Rumi
Hird, a painter, stage designer and award-winning filmmaker uses the mythical garden as a metaphor to explore how we perceive truth. Narratives favorites familiar from her childhood, such as Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll and The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett – among others – are re-imagined for our present day in large-scale paintings, interactive shadowbox gardens and animated videos. Seductively, charmingly, she challenges the viewer to choose whether or not to believe.

THE COLOR OF SUMMER
Paola Effio
On view in the XOJ Gallery
A mermaid plays the lyre with a boat on her head. An anthropomorphized cat considers her next move. A dragon smiles with its tongue out like a happy dog. Effio’s charming ceramic Raku, mid-fire ceramics, concrete and Paltiya sculptures appear like characters from a children’s book, leaping into three dimensions.

MAKE IT UP AS I GO
Meme Ferré
On view in the Zabar Lobby Gallery
Miami artist Meme Ferré’s abstract works unite a vibrant natural color palette reminiscent of her Caribbean heritage and the tropical, lush flora and fauna from her garden in Puerto Rico. Ferré believes her artistic gifts should be shared, inspiring her latest body of work, an homage of portraits that capture the essence of her friends and loved one’s personalities.

THE SUNSHINE COLLECTORS
Nellie Appleby
On view in the Zabar Project Gallery
Appleby’s wall-sized cyanotype prints are juxtaposed with plants, oolite and found objects in an immersive installation meant to have you gaze again at the world around you, with praise, consideration and collaborative energy.
