Ethan Pignataro: Third Stage - October First Friday Opening Reception

Ethan Pignataro: Third Stage

Striped Light is proud to present our October Artist Ethan Pignataro. His work will be displayed throughout the month of October, with special gallery hours to be announced. In partnership with the artist we will be publishing a series of Risograph prints and a Zine that will be released on the date of the opening reception.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Third Stage is a collection of allegorical work developed through a variety of references.  My artistic vision has been in a constant state of flux as I try to harness the over stimulation I experience as a high school art educator while navigating my roots as a casualty of cartoons, comic books, and loud, fast music.

Opening Reception: Black March - New Work by Jonathan Purtill

BLACK MARCH includes drawings / prints of heads in the process of being destroyed and a curated reading room of literature dealing with CIA mind control techniques and demonic possession fetishes. 

I want to chart the psychic consequences of the 1978 declassifaction of the MKULTRA program beginning with the satanic ritual abuse panic of the 1980s and ending with the aesthetics of 1990s American heavy metal.

CLOSING RECEPTION - This 'un, one more, then the briar patch. New work from Song of the South by Amos Oaks

CLOSING RECEPTION - This 'un, one more, then the briar patch. New work from Song of the South by Amos Oaks

Please join us for September First Friday. This will be the final opportunity to view this exhibition. 

This 'un, one more, then the briar patch.  New work from Song of the South by Amos Oaks.  The work in this show is an ongoing project.  This show is a follow up to the 2015 show TWACK.  The work continues to explore issues of abuse, racism, addiction, lust, religion, and other un-fun subject matter.  This work offers no answers.  The performance on August 19 at 9pm is an orchestration being rehearsed by two separate groups of musicians.  We will not play together until the night of the show and each group will be delivering their own interpretation of the piece collectively that evening.  This is being delivered in this fashion to contemplate individuals from different walks of life coming together to hash out ideas, passions, and beliefs in a way that is sometimes confrontational, sometimes out of rhythm, sometimes out of sync - with the hope that pushing on will work itself out in a way that might not give you a complete solution, but presents itself as something whole, acceptable, and beautiful.

'This Never Was for Us' - An Installation by Dan B. Hood

Striped Light presents the installation and printed matter of Knoxville artist, Dan B. Hood.

Raised in the Midwest, Dan B. Hood is a recent transplant to Knoxville, Tennessee, where he is completing his BFA in Printmaking in the School of Art at the University of Tennessee. As founder of HAUS of DIVE, Dan curates the arts publication and online gallery; focusing on showcasing emerging artists from the southeast and around the country. In the Summer of 2015 he completed Barriers: A Pop-Up Art Experience where he traveled across the U.S. and Canada creating installation exhibits in various cities along the way such as: Austin, TX, Los Angeles, CA, Calgary, AB, Canada and Philadelphia, PA amongst others. 

This Was Never For Us, an upcoming exhibition at Striped Light in Knoxville TN, presents playful sculptural forms inspired by the architecture of his childhood. From concrete and wooden pools to organic shapes reminiscent of flowers and mushrooms, the imagery acts as a gateway to self exploration and identity, using the ever-present materials of industrialism in our modern era.

Opening Reception - FLAT TOP - A Site-Specific Installation by Barron Hall, Robmat Butler and Jason Brown

FLAT TOP is a collaborative site-specific installation at Striped Light gallery, designed and built by Barron Hall, Robmat Butler and Jason Brown. Using architectural elements inspired by rooftops, the trio of artists has created a series of sculptural platforms to give viewers a sense of elevation as if they are walking on rooftops. The interactive installation mimics the buildings in the Central Avenue neighborhood in form and material. The project has both indoor and outdoor components, and will feature musicians performing on top of the sculpture at the opening and closing receptions on First Friday September 4 and October 2.

Very Good Plus Extreme Wear, The Blade-Altered Album Art of S. Shebaro

Very Good Plus Extreme Wear, The Blade-Altered Album Art of S. Shebaro

The audio content housed in a record, hidden in a sleeve has an energy, the
cover image is its first interface of communication. Romantic scenes blurred
with a ring of static produced from years of play, these covers seemed too
precious to be sitting, stacked in second-hand stores. The quiet
accomplishment of a well-loved object has value and that value rests in its
past. Shebaro's altered album covers focus on the overlooked presence and
influence of these aged objects in our lives and the power of recalled memories
we associate with them.


With blades, sandpaper and hours in the studio this reductive drawing process
is a form of meditation. Obscuring content that immediately identifies the
practical nature of the object allows the imagery to be re-discovered on the
same etherial level as a new sound. The artist sees this practice as a form of
drawing that references and is influenced by the calming, driving, uplifting
presence of music in everyday life.


Sarah Shebaro is an artist, instructor and printer recently relocated to
Knoxville, TN. She along with cohorts Jason Boardman and Bryan Baker are
now proud owners and operators of a letterpress shop, record label and
creative output imprint, Striped Light, located in the Happy Holler neighborhood
of Knoxville.


These covers will be on display through the month of April at Striped Light
located at 107 Bearden Place in Knoxville, TN. More of Sarah Shebaro's work
can be viewed on her site: sshebaro.com

TWACK - First Friday Exhibition Featuring the Work of Amos Oaks

TWACK - First Friday Exhibition Featuring the Work of Amos Oaks

Please join us at Striped Light, Friday March 6th from 6 to 10pm for our second exhibition featuring the work of Amos Oaks

TWACK:
Common objects associated with crystal methamphetamine. These objects can be signs that junkies are present or were there recently (maybe crashed on the floor/couch). These things include really crappy drawings of graffiti on scrap paper, uncleaned dog poo/drinks/food on the carpet, broken light bulbs/missing light bulbs (can be improvised to smoke meth), crafty arts that require short attention spans (for females), left-over traces of meth on the coffee table, and other various tweaker paraphernalia. 

Amos Oaks has been working on a project titled “Song of the South” for a couple of years. It has been building up from a foundation of research and small shows featuring readings and drawings. A visual timeline of sorts can be viewed at: 

http://www.chocolateshores.com/song-of-the-south.html 

This particular show might be considered the joist system and will continue to explore universal social issues related to abuse, poverty, addiction, and similar potentially traumatic themes from an East Tennessee perspective. Each issue is represented by a particular character from the Tales of Uncle Remus. The evening will end with an improvisational blues performed by Amos and John Phillips. 

(Jason) Amos proudly works under the banner of his middle name. It is the name of his great-grandfather and is symbolic of a tradition rooted in heritage and storytelling. He lives with his wife Misty (co-owner of Mister Canteen), his daughter Gillian (a musician), and his soon-to-be-leaving-from-home son Cal (a videographer).
