Shift Gallery welcomes new members Holly Hazelton and Matthew Harkleroad with an exhibition through the month of January 2023.
Harkeroad presents “That Thing, Right There” as a celebration of that moment when you see it but don’t quite know what to call it, and an invitation to linger there a while. He states "My process results in playful, contemplative and often surprising imagery that reflects my experience of observing the world just before identity is overlaid upon it. "
In “Familiar Devastation”Hazelton investigates our daily experiences of ecological grief. Big and small moments come to mind: effects of catastrophic, sensationalized events caused by climate change we see in the media, to the slow, almost imperceptible transformation of plants and place over time from human meddling.
