Ruby Palmer, Blue Ruin

Blue Ruin transports the viewer to a magical landscape inhabited by tiny deer, who peer at one another around the corners of a vividly painted architectural folly. Ruby Palmer is a Hudson Valley-based artist who reimagines the memory of a dream-like place or structure, and the scale of our longing for such places.

Takeyce Walters, Reflecting on Nature

Through October 5, 2023

Reflecting on Nature seeks to offer the viewer an intimate replica of a peaceful and contemplative

moment outdoors, with the aim of fostering a deep and lasting connection to the natural environment.

How would we view and experience the world around us if we realized that we are not separate from

it? Our disconnection from nature has led to environmental problems like climate change and

deforestation. Perhaps seeing ourselves as a connected part of our ecosystem can help us

become better stewards of the environment. We are not only a part of nature, we are nature.

Laura von Rosk, Homage to the Firefly

Oct. 2023 - March, 2024

Laura states, "As a kid, I loved family trips to the Museum of Natural History in NYC, where I was transported into another world while viewing its wildlife dioramas. The miniMOCA gallery echoes that memory, filling the viewer’s field of vision with critters in a painted landscape. When the sun goes down, the space is transformed by the use of phosphorescent pigments, allowing the bugs and stars to glow in the dark."

Melinda McDaniel, Loop-the-Loop

March 20 - June 1, 2024

Presenting as sweet on the surface, the ceramic figurines featured in my work are recognizableand strange; they are one thing and another simultaneously. They playfully act out theme sassociated with endless news cycles, politics gone wild, privilege, and identity. Using a library of commercial plaster molds, I create slip-cast positives that serve as my palette. Figurines are collaged from various subjects, including nativity scenes, flora, fauna, and vessels. The final forms are displayed in diorama-like narratives that illustrate the surreality of the human condition.

Sascha Mallon, Tower of Dream

June 6 - August 31, 2024
