Things Are Finished, Until They’re Not at Maisterravalbuena

Through May 20, 2017

Things are Finished, Until They’re Not by Dan Shaw-Town is his third solo show in the Maisterravalbuena gallery. An art exhibition with plenty of texture and movement, Shaw-Town attempts to eliminate the differences between drawing and sculpture. Instead of laying flat, paper is a whole new 3-D experience.

Ensayos Para Un Autorretrato at Real Sociedad Fotográfica

Ensayos Para un Autoretrato by Isabel Casellas is a two-part series of photos in black and white, featuring pictures full of movement. Her idea was to take pictures that are imprecise (even blurred) of things and moments as they are happening, in order to express emotions or even use photography as photo-therapy.

May 4 to June 17, 2017
