Erek Nass will exhibit Descent, an installation of light and protracted sound. Reflected video footage is projected onto water vapor seemingly contained within the clear walls of a wooden structure. The accompanying layered soundtrack echoes and dodges the contours of the projected image while leaked vapor slowly dissipates into the gallery.

 

Nass is a multidisciplinary artist with a MFA from Columbus College of Art & Design. Prior to that he received his BBA from the University of Notre Dame. He has exhibited his work at Pearl Conrad Gallery (OSU, Mansfield), Manifest Gallery (Cincinnati, OH), LUXUS international group show (Corning, NY), and S12 Gallery (Bergen, Norway). Nass is a resident of Corrugate Studio, and lives and works in Columbus, Ohio.

 

 

Kelsy Gossett will exhibit Relations, an installation combining video work and a multitude of pale pink balloons. Gossett’s work acts as a broad critique of the depiction of women in popular culture while also relaying Gossett’s own experiences navigating a transitional time in a relationship. Gossett is focused on honesty and averse to things being sugar coated, using her own experiences to explore issues of codependency within romantic partnerships.

 

Gossett received an MFA in Studio Art/Photo Media and a BA in Studio Art from Wichita State University, where she is currently an Adjunct Instructor (Wichita, KS). She has exhibited work at Anne Kittrell Art Gallery (University of Arkansas), Diver Studio (Wichita, KS) Hallie Brown Fine Arts Center (Ada, OK), and the Wilson K. Cadman Art Gallery (Wichita, KS), among others. Gossett currently lives and works in Wichita, Kansas.
