1975 Gallery director Erich Lehman has turned over the reins for the current show. Through June 27, the space is hosting "With Love from the No Coast," a group exhibition curated by Chicago-based artist and curator, Josef Zimmerman. The exhibition will feature new works by six artists from the landlocked regions of America, as well as Philadelphia-based artist Yis Goodwin, aka NOSEGO. In addition to Goodwin, the show features rad artwork by Daniel Dienelt, Amanda Joseph, Justin Henry Miller, Kay Gregg, Steve Seeley, and Eric Tarr.
The thesis behind the exhibit is the idea that the modern movement has broken down the barriers of distance and standard model of the art world, per the press release. The new series seeks to showcase emerging and established artists from the middle of America on one or the other coast, in hopes of opening up communication between arts communities and expanding opportunities for artists.
1975 Gallery (89 Charlotte Street) is open Wednesday through Thursday, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday, 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 466-4278 or visit facebook.com/1975ish.
