Gamut Gallery presents Shimmer, John Foster’s first ever solo exhibition. Foster combines color, light, space into sculptural synergy forming art objects ranging from radiant house plants and wall pieces to furniture. Fine Art and Quantum theory intersect in the process he describes as “inter-dimensional quilting.” Sculpted peaks and valleys of light represent a collaboration between strength and failure. Shimmer seeks to bridge the distance between the viewers and the objects.

EXHIBIT FINALE DANCE PERFORMANCE
Thursday August 22th, Doors 7pm // $10 presale, $13 at the door
This event will have limited 30 person capacity, tickets available here. This freeform performance experience aims at redefining the traditional audience-performer relationship while examining the concepts of perspective and reflection. Two 20-minute Improv Dance sessions will occur through the evening, followed by Q and A.
Artistic ambitions collide as movement brings objects to life in this existential exploration of light, color and reflection. The juxtaposition of Foster’s kaleidoscopic geometry matched with the immediate proximity of improvisational dance will make for an experience that bridges two different corners of the local artistic landscape – providing two different interpretations of the same world.
“I think the combination of John’s work and the response we have planned will make for an interesting display that adds yet another dimension to his artwork,” says Amanda Sachs, one of the participating TU Dance members. “Just like some of the pieces in Shimmer, improv can embody varying textures and can represent meaning that is both direct and abstract. Your perspective defines what’s a contradiction or a similarity, and an interpretation is often dependent on what it’s in relation to.”
