Open Spaces: A Visual Experience in Two Artistic Projects

Spruill Gallery

Featuring work by: Acquille Dunkley, Kathryn Nee

Two artists have been invited to showcase their artistic ventures within the realm of digital, photographic media. Acquille Dunkley utilizes his photography background and transforms it into new age, digital art, creating spaces from his imagination through the use of technology while Kathryn Nee takes a more traditional approach. Nee, using a DSLR camera, tripod, and long exposures, documents physical places where the initial purpose has long since diminished. Together, these two artists portray open, quiet spaces, void of any physical presence, while the remnants of society can still be felt.

In-Person: Exhibition Sep 09 - Oct 23

Join Spruill Gallery in welcoming two exhibitions that portray open, quiet spaces, void of any physical presence but where the remnants of society can still be felt.

"The Calmness in Cognition" is a visual presentation from Jamaican born artist, Acquille Dunkley. Through advances in technology, Dunkley is able to breathe new life into visual art with endless possibilities. Creating environments with full control over lighting, textures and colors, he is able to generate spaces where shadows and highlights become the sculptor of moods and emotions.

"Fingerprints" presents photographs from Kathryn Nee. Allowing the derelict and broken to have the final word, Nee gives voice to the silent. During her many travels, she documents the slow decline of abandoned buildings and sprawling industrial spaces, capturing the residue of humanity; the fading fingerprints of society and culture.

In-Person: Opening Reception Sep 09 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The opening reception for "Open Spaces" provides viewers a chance to meet the artists along with the traditional reception fare of light bites and beverages. A brief artist talk will occur during the evening to introduce both Acquille Dunkley & Kathryn Nee and their respective projects. This event is free and open to the public. Masks are required inside the gallery when not actively eating or drinking. No RSVP required.
