Art House Reaching Out, Reaching In, Finding Magic

As a longtime resident of Brooklyn Center, I’ve been asked to write a perspective of Art House. After talking with energetic staff and researching Art House’s arts education programming and classes, I return to a moment that unfolded  during a late June fundraiser. Experimental filmmaker Robert Banks created an interactive multimedia installation for  this event.

Paying Attention at William Busta Gallery

There is always something missing when an artist portrays a place visited during vacation or sabbatical. And there is  often something spectacularly present when an artist’s work responds to the cultural and visual landscapes with which  they identify. The best of these works have a way of becoming insistent in the culture, forever shaping how everyone  understands that landscape. This fall, three exhibits at William Busta Gallery present the artists […]

It’s Only a Paper Moon at Proximity

Paper is a ubiquitous material we use without a thought—reading books or magazines, jotting notes, or wrapping delicate artwork in newspaper.
