Rights of Way: Mobility and the City
December 5, 2013 –May 26, 2014
James Graham and Meredith Miller of MILLIGRAM-office
Rights of Way: Mobility and the City is a global exploration of mobility and transportation in cities. The exhibition will feature dozens of examples of visionary urban thinking, showing how the city is shaped by the ways people move through it.
Curated by James Graham and Meredith Miller of MILLIGRAM-office, Rights of Way will demonstrate that our urban environment is the result of constant negotiation among designers, policy makers, the private sector, and individual residents. By claiming that access to mobility is access to opportunity and that everyone has his or her own “right of way,” this future-oriented show will reveal how those public rights are always at play in the shared commons of the city.

FP3 Gallery is pleased to present Distorted Memories, an exhibition of recent paintings by Nick Ward. Nick’s paintings are often described as realism. However, these paintings stop quite short of – and in some areas just past – photo realism. Instead of capturing visual reality, his portraits attempt to describe his memories – real or imagined – of these subjects. Equal attention is given to long relationships and fleeting glances; actual experiences are treated the same as invented encounters. The portraits combine exaggerated characteristics with occasional use of text or vivid color as a counterpoint to the familiar forms of the human face and body.

Jeffrey Heyne: Fascia
An anatomical term, fascia refers to the membrane tissues that connect the body’s skin to its underlying muscles. In this series, the idealized human face is photographically explored. Continuing an earlier line of inquiry examining allegorical sculpture, mannequins, and Barbie dolls; body image concepts are explored questioning the way we feel about ourselves, the way we emote those feelings to others, and how they are interpreted.
Dorothea Van Camp: Leonardo’s Lap
Dorothea Van Camp’s imagery is found in a process that makes use of printmaking, drawing and painting to arrive at something on the edge of recognition — somehow familiar but unknowable. Drawings that originate in a vector driven computer program are screen printed onto panels before being freely worked and manipulated with more oil paint. There is a persistent reference to “body” in the work that delights in commingling with hard lines and technical processes, echoing our ever-increasing mingling of flesh with technology.
