Estuary

Mar 10 to Apr 30
Emily Galusha Gallery

Estuary, an exhibition of work by Simon Levin (Gresham, WI) and Amy Smith (Lincoln, NE), is an evolved dialogue of formal elements that explore ideas and properties of water. Making work from their separate studios, but in conversation through an exchange of work over the years, they’ve collaboratively paired select pieces for the exhibition. The title Estuary is derived from the Hudson River in New York State. One of its many names, Mahicantuck, means “great waters in constant motion,” or more loosely translated, “river that flows two ways.” Estuary visualizes the graceful meeting of two individual artists.

The artists write “our strength is our opposing energy: dark-light, male-female, hot-cold, yin-yang. Surfaces are balanced: dry and wet enhanced because they are together, they give rise to one another; the quiet paired with drama makes the quiet quieter; a warm, orange shino glaze burns beside pale blue. Gifts are bestowed, connections made, and concepts layered. We’ve set a conversation in motion between line, color, angle, space, and the space between.”
