The Rematch: James Wrayge and Duane Ditty January 2017

Rosalux Gallery presents
“The Rematch- James Wrayge and Duane Ditty.”
Opening reception:  January 7, 2017 from 7pm – 10pm
Exhibit runs through January 29th.
James Wrayge: “Composition in the Key of X” oil on canvas
Though Wrayge and Ditty have only become aware of each others work relatively recently they have a shared history and similar understanding of painting, both choosing to keep their work abstract and non-objective.  The work of both displays an enthusiasm for the interplay of geometric pictorial space.

Like boxers who return to the ring they have honed their skills and are aware of the necessity for response and exchange in the working process.  Their familiarity with the canvas allows for loose, geometrically defined gestures to create a space representative of action and reaction.  Both work in the realm of discovery and ambiguity where the next move could lead to disaster or completion.

These paintings represent time and it’s overlap, surrounding and circumstance, spontaneity and consideration.

Rosalux Announces The Return of Our Annual Open Call Exhibition This December

Open Door Twelve

Rosalux gallery is proud to announce the opening of it’s twelfth annual Open Door exhibition coming to the gallery this December.  Open Door is the one time of year when Rosalux opens its doors to artists outside of the collective in the form of an open call to bring inside what is happening outside of the gallery doors and give them an opportunity to share their work with our audience.  Open Door Twelve will feature work form artists Nicolas Darcourt, Justine Di Fiore, Mary Gibney, Monica Howell, R.J. Kern, Daniel McCarthy- Clifford, Karen Peters, Montana Picard, Erika Ritzel, Nick Rivers, Adam White, and Jake Zirbes.  This year’s call was jurored by artist and curator Andrea Carlson who had this to say about the selections she made for this years open door exhibition,

“This years Open Door was narrowed by the unified, curated theme of tactility. There is an immediacy of associating a surface with similar things one has touched. When I see the texture of an object, there is a known, lived experience. Looking past the glossy screen of a minimalist surface, glancing at my minimalist phone, I’m more tortured by the texture, complexity of surface, materiality that I can’t reach—the desire to break a snow globe to free the figurines. The artists in this exhibition are communicating experiences or theory sympathetic though texture and materiality. That being said, follow my mother’s warning and, “touch with your eyes.”
