  • Wanderlust is an international group exhibition inspired by travel, far-away places, adventurous experiences and fascinating destinations. Participating artists were given identical postcards and asked to create a unique piece for the show inspired by the theme “wanderlust”. Travel via boat, plane, foot, and yes, even jellyfish to your favorite destination in this eclectic and imaginative exhibition!

  • Brian Donnelly’s portraiture deconstructs the dialogue between the audience and objects by experimenting with the fragile nature of artwork.  Faces deteriorate, separate, and occasionally combust in his work, redefining it as transitional rather than perpetual.  Presenting fading memories instead of permanent effigies Donnelly draws a parallel between the fragility of artwork and the ephemeral nature of ourselves.
