Oglethorpe Gallery is pleased to present Transcendentia, a group show featuring artists Arend Neyhouse, Grace Stevens and Julia Soehngen-Roos on November 11, 2016. The opening reception will be on Friday, November 11, from 6-9pm. The event is free and open to the public.
Transcendentia showcases the works of Arend Neyhouse, Grace Stevens and Julia Soehngen-Roos unified through the theme of existence and experience beyond the physical level. Neyhouse’s saturated oil paintings respond to the urban environment. He delves into the ideas of isolation brought about by our ever-increasing interface with technology. His work highlights the connective nature of being “plugged in” and the sense of togetherness this can bring about. Stevens is exploring the sublime beauty in creation through representational paintings. Her work focuses on the early morning hours, looking at the first light of day and examining how the night fades and the light of dawn loses the darkness. Soehngen-Roos’ work investigates the moment of surfacing from an abysmal darkness into tranquil light. Through painting, she is exploring the tangible and the imaginable, merging the lines of both representation and abstraction. Transcendentia highlights three perspectives of the immaterial through interpretations of transcendence.
Oglethorpe Gallery aspires to advance exemplary contemporary artists and their work through an emphasis on quality designed exhibition space, accessible and experienced curatorship, and an established presence in the Savannah art community.
