This week the Gem Gallery presents a show entitled Pocket Landscapes. Opening reception of the group exhibition is this Friday, Mar 18, 6:30-10:30pm

‘The exhibition is an inquiry into the particulars of a pocket of landscape definitive of place. We consider landscape to be better understood by moving through it slowly and gathering detailed information. We are interested in observing spaces and places by traveling through them while understanding their… simultaneous formation caused by our movement. Exemplified on a large scale are cities which develop according to peoples movements through them. On a small scale, a plot of grass changes as we move over it and flatten certain blades.

We are interested in a mimetic response to landscape in pockets, landscape found in our pockets, pocket sized landscape, pockets of landscapes or landscape that could fit in our pocket. Each artist will use a suitable medium to develop their inquiry.’
