Two concurrent solo exhibitions:
Josie Osborne: Wonder…
Gary John Gresl: Anthropocene Culminatus
Exhibition Date: May 27 – July 9, 2016
Joint Reception: Saturday, June 11, 5–9 pm
Wednesday, June 29, 5:30–8 pm
Join us for an insightful conversation BETWEEN Gary and Josie on their own work and each others’.
Josie Osborne and Gary John Gresl both make art from found objects, detritus they carefully and curiously gather and reassemble into insightful artworks. Osborne’s work is subtle, often literary, and fundamentally about inexplicable wonder. Gresl’s art is rustic, creepy at times, visually overwhelming and related to the end of the world.
What might these two artists have in common other than their love of discarded, old things? More than you might imagine.

The tie-in between Anthropocene Culminatus and Wonder…
Although these are two separate exhibitions, there are a lot of similarities between the two. Both Josie’s and Gary’s work reference a tradition of creating artwork with found and readymade objects with their own signature that provide personal narrative and expression.
