Last Friday, the "2011/12 Jerome Emerging Artists Exhibition" held its opening reception. The show features the work of Richard Barlow, Gregory Euclide, Lauren Herzak-Bauman, Alison Hiltner, and Jehra Patrick. When displayed together, their works create a varied show that at times basks in introspective serenity and at times pounces with flair.

Patrick appears to be making a comment about not seeing; about things of beauty that are just in view, but somehow out of sight. That gives a key to examining the rest of the work, as all of her pieces suggests moments of beauty that you might only see in your peripheral vision, or that you wouldn't necessarily notice unless you were very in tune with the world around you.

Also showing in the exhibition is Lauren Herzak-Bauman's sculptural installation created from shattered bits of porcelain with spurts of black ash, cords, and plugs transformed into a theatrical set that unfortunately got lost during the opening reception, but probably has a better affect if you are to visit during open hours.
