The Kids Are Alright - Sandra Wong Orloff & Daniel Stingle
Dec 01 - Jan 07 2023 - 34 days left
GearBox Gallery presents The Kids Are Alright, featuring work by Sandra Wong Orloff and Daniel Stingle. Wong Orloff’s figurative drawings are highlighted with bright lines of color that are reflective of the times and the world. Wong Orloff draws images of young people as they navigate coming of age in a pandemic. Other drawings taken from news events ask us to reconsider whether the kids are alright. Stingle finds and creates objects; assembling them in fragile constructs to represent human infrastructure and its collision with nature. Calling attention to objects that are linked to natural resource consumption and environmental degradation, Stingle aims to engage the audience by using the formal principles of ceramic art mixed with humor.

Elegy - Carol Elkovich
Dec 01 - Jan 07 2023 - 34 days left
GearBox Gallery presents Elegy, a special exhibition in the Inner Room by Carol Elkovich. Elegy is a deconstructed painting that acts as a parasitic intervention upon architecture and reflects upon both the beauty and terror of nature. Consisting of many thousands of handpainted pieces, the installation was made over the past three years during the COVID-19 pandemic as a process of marking time and contemplation of the extraordinary experience. The installation offers a space and moment of contemplation for viewers to process the losses, isolation, and sacrifices made during the global pandemic that has changed our world and will be long remembered. The installation includes a metaphorical wailing wall where viewers are invited to tie a white strip of cloth to a tree branch as a catharsis and in elegy to our collective losses. This element nods to Cherokee, Lakota, and Buddhist traditions for healing and positivity for the future.
