Geometry Satellite or the Curiosity Rover
A Steamboat Springs Arts Council pop-up gallery collaboration with K. Saari Gallery
First Friday Opening Reception: Sept. 7, 5 – 8pm
Exhibition Dates: Sept. 7 - 16
Location: 635 Lincoln Avenue, in Old Town Square (in the former Quicksilver retail store)
This temporary exhibition will take place for two weeks, opening on Friday September 7th. The Steamboat Springs Arts Council and K. Saari Gallery will collaborate on this pop-up exhibition presenting contemporary artworks from Christie Ginanni Stepan, Beth Banning, Siobhan Feehan, Will Day, Park Myers, Susan Oehme, Derek Frech, and Kenneth Ober.
Geometry Satellite or the Curiosity Rover will feature works that establish notions of geometry, perspective and interpretations of georelational data 1. . The space will be transformed into a satellite gallery from the main gallery of the Eleanor Bliss Center for the Arts at the Depot. With a nod to the goals of the Curiosity Rover, which recently landed on Mars to act as a mobile geologist and chemist in order to remotely produce data for the purposes of further understanding of the Martian geological landscape, certain works place the artist in a similar position of interpretation. Related in process, yet differing in output, other works will distort perspective and geometry to place the viewer and the artwork in an optical rapport. This exhibition will exist in a vacant, yet dynamic retail space. Multiple floor levels, exposed flooring and original structures will act as a means for viewers to explore the exhibition on a more physical level than that of a traditional gallery space. The space, Old Town Square owned by Resort Development Group, LLP, was generously donated by Reginald and Pamela Gray.
