What's Next ?????

The new art will go up on Sept. 3.
you have until then to see what's up right now.

The Sept. artists are Ardee Roberson & The Rogue Lemon.
Here are their statements.

Adee Roberson is a visual artist & musician who lives in Florida & California. She believes in ART as a commemoration of the natural world & our ancestors. She creates through MAGIC, DREAMS, & INTUITION.
Some of these works are about the magic & mystery of the Trinity ( pyramids, triangles, third eyes, etc ) . Others are an ode to the cosmos, obscure historical figures, legendary black gay icons, & my friends.

The Rogue Lemon--

"Put away your toys ....It's time for dinner!"
As a kid I remember feeling absolutely devastated at the prospect of having to put away my toys to eat or go to bed. "How could they do this to me ?" I thought. " Battles were being fought ! New worlds were being discovered ! Important stuff like that shouldn't take a back seat to food or sleep!"
Of course my perspective on this has changed a bit over the years but I can still appreciate the complete immersion children experience during playtime.
As adults , we can easily forget the intense drama we felt during play. After all , it's just injection molded plastic. But to a child, these pieces of plastic embody what it is to be hunter, hunted, victor, vanquished, prisoner, hero, villain......confused, lost, afraid, or empowered.
My " Just A Game " series seeks to revisit the world of miniature toys. Through controlled depth of field and lighting I explore the rich drama and excitement of play.
Anything is possible ........and it is anything but just a game.
