| 7. Art by Albee and Connors | Things in the Slow and Steady Wins the Race Time Capsule for 2017

There are 7 days remaining in 2017 so we thought we would countdown and share with you some of the items and ideas we would put in our time capsule. For us they straddle the very specific space of the timely with the timeless; sometimes sublimely anachronistic, fundamentally classic, and are reflective of a value system we hold true to.

Matt Connors at Canada Gallery

From The New Yorker :

Lovely, jittery new paintings, bolstered by lyrical talent and philosophical suspense, affirm Connors’s status as a leader in contemporary abstraction. Each work takes a crack at discovery with some variant of strict or wobbly geometry, dense or scrappy composition, careful or flurried touch, and color that seems wrong, but you like it. Beauty keeps happening like something glimpsed by chance, neither quite intended nor fully grasped. What Connors is trying to get at may be unachievable, but his going for it beguiles.

Becca Albee at Situations Gallery

From Artnews:

“So that’s the kind of beginning walkthrough, this rotating light fixture that projects cyan, magenta, and yellow, which is to vibrate color,” Albee said.
