SEPTEMBER 6 – 28: West of Center: Art that Pushes Boundaries

-This juried all-media exhibition, now in its 11th year, will showcases over 60 works created by 35 artists. Detroit artist and juror Tony Roko made selections based on art and artists that pushed the boundaries of art imagery, practices, and theory. Boundaries include those set by traditional concepts, art history, genre, subject matter, personal experiences, and societal norms. Artists were also encouraged to explore and employ new techniques, technologies, and media to create compelling two-and three-dimensional artworks.

This free exhibition runs through September 28 during regular gallery hours.

Briana Mohan of Moban Studio, Clarkston, MI

Moban Studio explores pressures applied to wildlife by human expansion into natural frontiers. High contrast styles lean heavily on linework to freeze natural forms and textures in stark, ghostly aesthetics. Animals are shown in dramatic poses to convey power and pain. Optical illusions that mask an animal’s form allude to quiet recession of individual animals and fading of entire species.

Briana Mohan is a self-taught artist painting in acrylic and oil on both canvas and clear acrylic panel. This unconventional media accommodates a deeper interpretation of negative space and shadow than traditional canvas. Her work debuted publicly in April of 2019 at the Venus Rising exhibition in Detroit, Michigan.
