Julie Snidle: Artistic Lichens: A Kolman & Reeb Gallery Project Space Exhibition

June 11 – August 6, 2022

Artist Talk and Demonstration
Thursday, July 7, 2022
7:00 p.m.

We are pleased to present our next Project Space grantee exhibition: Artistic Lichens, composed of new work by encaustic artist, Julie Snidle. The motivation for the exhibition came to Julie  while she was attending an encaustic conference on Cape Cod. “I’d walk out onto a nearby seawall, which was comprised of gray boulders encrusted with bright, yellow-orange lichens, Xanthoria parientina,” she recalls. “I couldn’t stop looking at them. I knew I had to create a new body of work inspired by those beautiful lichens.” The Kolman & Reeb Gallery Project Space Grant made it possible for Julie to paint 51 abstract encaustic artworks of different sizes all celebrating these fascinating organisms. Please make plans to see this exciting show; it's going to be a good one!

Jodi Reeb: Emergence: A Kolman & Reeb Gallery Project Space Exhibition

August 27 - October 22, 2022

Artist Reception:
Saturday, August 27, 2022
7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Kolman & Reeb Gallery is pleased to announce its next Project Space grantee exhibition, Emergence, by visual artist, Jodi Reeb. In the exhibition, Jodi plans to connect with the gallery space through a series of sculptures, paintings, and site-specific installations.

Jodi  intends to utilize the gallery’s cement columns, wood floor, and ceiling beams in order to “push the sculptures off the walls and into the space,” she explains. The materiality throughout the gallery, which also includes a brick back wall and sheetrock or drywall surfaces, has inspired Jodi, as have the gallery’s corners and flat surfaces. Reeb will also incorporate organic shapes in the work, along with tubing, tape, wax, and wire.
