Lyons Wier Gallery is pleased to announce the group exhibition "HUMANNESS" independently curated by artist Marc Dennis. The exhibition is comprised of seven emerging artists of varying techniques whose depiction of the complexities of emotion explore the concept of the essential and distinguishing attributes of being human.
Noah Becker uses collage, paint and image appropriation to convey the symbiotic imbalance between art historical narratives and contemporary contexts.
Steve Cope paints with a virtuosity of a modern-day miniaturist, hinting at the contradictory emotions connected to states of aloneness and overcrowding in a wide range of suburban and rural environments.
Jeanette Hayes cleverly paints imaginary situations where pop culture and high art collide.
John LaMacchia's hand-made pristine porcelain vessels explore and expose (somewhat literally)
a hidden general curiosity and likely fascination with sexual identities.
Zorawar Sidhu creates visceral work about the possibilities of transformative dialogues between the past and present, as well as the technologically reproduced and handmade art objects.
Robert Telenick's figurative paintings signify the personal belief that science is at the core of our contemporary psyche just as religion was at the center of human consciousness in the 16th century.
Renelle White Buffalo's paintings intersect the varying relationships between color and form and Lakota culture and identity.
