Velvet Highway Artist Reception

April 4, 2019 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The Holland Project Gallery is very pleased to announce VELVET HIGHWAY, an exhibition of work by artists of Smooth Muscle Collective (New York + Bay Area) including Dominique Palladino, Jacy Ceccarelli, Sophie Parker, and KC Tidemand. This all women show illuminates the relationship between human, nature, and modernity. The highway is a portal to internal and external landscapes, but it is also a barrier that separates us from our wildest tendencies to wander. It is the modern ribbon connecting the wilderness to the twinkling metropolis and the visceral to the touchable. A clean, fast line cutting through the unperceived – it is the edge, an end, and a beginning.  Through sculpture, photography, kinetics, and multi media, Smooth Muscle approaches the highway as a measure of internal trajectory and travel – as a metaphor for growth in the act of becoming. In the Velvet Highway, they are the drivers on the ontological road, vacillating between what it means to be neither here nor there, but rather somewhere in the middle – somewhere soft to touch.

Velvet Highway will be on view from April 4-May 3, 2019 with an artist reception on April 4th, 6-9PM. Holland Project Gallery hours are Wed-Fri 12-6PM and every last Saturday of an exhibition. Appointments can be made with Alisha by calling 775.448.6500 or emailing alisha@hollandreno.org.
