Art Room is pleased to announce its upcoming group exhibition entitled “TWO,” representing the work of local and regional artists including Jessie Barnes, Kyle Hobratschk, Felice House, Alessandra Khraish, Jessica McClendon, Ryan Schroeder, Liz Trosper, Vance Wingate, and Dana Younger.

“TWO” reveals itself to be an extension of Art Room’s debut show “ONE.” This particular body of work intrinsically reveals the juxtaposition of naturalistic subject matter and industrial, geometric forms. Although seemingly dissimilar, these two subjects are embedded in the traditional and representational. An overt characteristic that is exemplified by all artists in the exhibition is the accessibility of their craft, whether that exists in the form of printmaking, painting, sculpture, or digital reproductions, which are all techniques represented in the show. Dr. Stephen Caffey describes House and Younger’s work as creating “an expansive and fertile interpretive space within which the viewer can project and reflect on his or her own senses of self, nature and wholeness.”
“TWO” will run through June 4, 2016. Gallery hours are by appointment only. For additional information please contact Nathan Madrid or Katie Murray at artroomfw@gmail.com, and visit our website www.artroom.space for more information about upcoming shows and to join our mailing list.
An exhibition catalog will be available for purchase.
