OMN7 Presents Subjectively Projected Exhibition

  • 46 Yard Road Pennington, NJ, 08534 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Common Threads Gallery Presents:

The Subjectively Projected Exhibit is an immersive look into something so mundane, we rarely realize the intrinsic part it plays in our everyday lives, our interpretations of those around us, what that says about who we are, and how we eventually view ourselves.

Trenton based artists Billy Dee (Bill W Dumè), Brass Rábbit and Phillip Kon-el Mcconnell have created 3 separate new pieces each. Two depicting their fellow members and one self-portrait. The total of 9 portraits will be surrounded by bodies of work from each artist that discuss and dive into their own subjective understanding and commentary of the world around them. These portraits are designed to show the contrast between the way we see those around us and how our views of reality vary drastically based on the viewer.

Opening Reception is on April 11 from 6 to pm

Hopewell Valley Vineyards: Transitions exhibit featuring artist Wayne Freitag

Opening Reception Thursday March 13th 6pm to 9pm

Artist Wayne Freitag returns to Hopewell Valley Vineyards with his exhibit titled Transitions : Changes in Scenery - Changes in Life

About this exhibit Wayne writes, “Certainly as an artist, but simply as a person I've always been fascinated by the change of seasons and our own change of lifestyle because of that. I've painted a series of landscapes from summer to winter, especially that time of transition between seasons. The forest echoes our lives; where is the path? If I find the path, is it the right path? Take a few steps and find out! While we must always be wary of change, we should not fear it. It is inevitable. Nor should we embrace it too strongly, for times will change yet again. Perhaps it is not a path at all, but ourselves that we must find.”

Hopewell Valley Vineyards: Uneven Development an exhibit featuring Kat Reischl

  • Hopewell Valley Vineyards (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Opening Reception February 14th 6pm to 9pm

Kat Reischl's work is deeply focused on urban built environments and urban green landscapes. In her travels through the everyday (New York to Trenton) and a bit further afield (Moscow), she is drawn to the interplay of shape and texture: rectangles reshape circles, circles break up the flat plane of the square, green dandelions reframe gray geometries. Geometric forms can enhance perspectival depth, or deny the experience of depth entirely. Textures, even in the flatness of the photograph, can overwhelm our field of vision. As Viktor Shklovsky wrote in 1920, "Texture is the main feature of that special world of constructed things, the aggregate of which we usually call art. The word in art and the word in life are profoundly different. In life it plays the role of a bead on an abacus, in art it's a texture. We have it in sound. It reverberates and we listen to it in its full potential." This selection of recent work explores the meeting points between this world of constructed things and art through the (potentially) transformative power of the camera's lens. These captures invite you to look at the world differently through the camera's estrangement, but also ask you to consider the similarities between capitalist and socialist decay from the US to Russia before they are reconfigured by rapid (re)development. This will be uneven development: an academic's inclination to choose an intellectual point over aesthetic enjoyment, and a photographer's struggle to anew the road and medium already over-trodden
