GearBox Gallery Inner Room: Dana DeKalb’s paintings in Open Season depict a variety of characters purposefully engaged in a range of joint efforts. Posed diorama-like, the subjects appear to busy themselves with hunting and gathering forays, while encountering unforeseen or miraculous events. Although they are challenged and awed, the subjects seem not to have let it dim their enthusiasm for the task at hand. Each scene captures a moment’s pause in the action: for respite, assessment of the path forward, or perhaps second thoughts about the enterprise itself. These works can be read as a metaphor for the ways in which we manage the uncertainty and constant change in our own lives. The narratives reflect on our most recent journey together through two years of the pandemic, environmental peril, and political upheaval; as well as our individual endeavors to navigate the world.

  • Gallery Hours: Thursday-Saturdays, 12 – 5 pm
