Batgirl and Robin is about friendship that bridges us together from a young age. The best part of a youthful game is the fun we have when we are on the same team looking out for each other.

In this case, it is also about a true friendship. –Christine Ferrouge, Artist

While rigor and reason shore up Euclid's logical system of plane geometry, Charlie Milgrim takes a more intuitive approach and renders her own geometric system of the three basic planes—the circle, square, and triangle. In Plane Shapes she creates an association of non-objective paintings and objects in which concentric and eccentric circles—one ordered, one disordered— collide with the linear edges and sharp corners of squares and triangles.

Drawn to things that are in a state of disrepair or decay, Harry Clewans and Linda Ellinwood revel about things one might find in a gutter or washed up on a beach––a broken light bulb, a battered plastic toy, a piece of driftwood, or a dried piece of kelp. For them collecting such objects offers insight into how they once worked or were formed and inspires new constructions and artwork that is entirely their own.
