Civilian Art Projects relocated to our neighborhood in 2009 and has since been doing very exciting things from its home base on Seventh Street. Its latest group show -- which opens Friday (January 21, 2011) with a reception from 7 to 9 p.m. -- is no exception. From the press release:
Civilian Art Projects presents climate, control, a three-person exhibition curated by Kristina Bilonick and Karyn Miller featuring J.J. McCracken, Jan Razauskas, and Millicent Young. The name climate, control refers to the artists' response to their immediate surroundings, as well as the exacting nature of their practice. The artists in this exhibition work in drastically different materials – from clay and horsehair to drawing and paint – but in each of their works, there is an intense focus on the precision of artistic production, and a sense of significance in the medium they chose to work in.
