VENTILATION
New Orleans, LA 2015

United Projects presents VENTILATION: an on-going public forum of inquiry into creative practices. VENTILATION is a discussion based platform in which individuals are able to explore and exchange creative ideas.

These conversations will be utilized to discuss topics of interest or concern, ideas-in-process and critique ongoing work. Topics will be generated from the group or from those deemed facilitators.

VENTILATION is a think-tank, where ideas are displaced from their internal shroud to a collective conscious, where they can be morphed and cultivated. Discussions convene weekly, hosted by a revolving door of organizations and spaces involved in visual art and other forms of creation.

Next meeting:

Thursday, December 3rd @ 8 p.m. Hosted by:

FOUNDATION GALLERY ( 1109 Royal st. )

Robert Kelly and Thomas Kelly, From Concealed to Revealed

DATE
Sat, Mar 5, 2016
through Sat, Mar 26, 2016
DETAILS

March 5 – 26, 2016
Opening reception: March 5, 6 – 8 pm
Reception with artists: March 12, 6 – 8 pm

Octavia Art Gallery is pleased to present From Concealed To Revealed, a two-person exhibition for twin brothers Robert and Thomas Kelly. This will be the first exhibition at the gallery for both artists.

Twins often have commonalities; for Robert and Thomas one thing they share is an intuitive poetic sensibility to shape, form, and color. Thomas captures fleeting moments and the spirit within humans, while Robert creates spirit through his use of line and form on canvas. Both artists are able to suggest that which the eye cannot see and have a certain reflection and absorption in the act of creating an image. They prefer to live with questions rather than answers, pointing toward greater mysteries. Inspired by the notion that sacred symbols are concealed and then revealed, each artist uses their respective mediums to express their ultimate concerns and use creativity to find sanctuary, beauty, humility, focus and a voice.
