"BLOW-OUT II" is an exhibition of sculptural forms and mixed-media paintings by Chicago-based artist Sarah Krepp, exhibition curator and founding director of DIALOGE CHICAGO, an interdisciplinary seminar.

"Unorganized Territory" is accumulated, stacked, layered and collaged forms by Kansas City-based artist Garry Noland. Noland's presentation is supported in part by Arts KC, the Kansas City Regional Arts Council. Noland received his B.A. in art history from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. In 2014 he was the recipient of the Charlotte Street Foundation Visual Artist Fellowship.  

Art curator and writer Lynne Warren of Chicago has written a major essay about the artists that will be available in the gallery-produced exhibition brochure.
