FOUND:RE Contemporary will feature visual and performing arts in three galleries, an art lounge and a number of auxiliary showcase spaces including mural walls, a sculpture yard, and much more. The innovative program will present emerging and established artists through a regular series of art exhibitions and special events in partnership with Artlink Phoenix.
The launch of FOUND:RE Contemporary features two exhibitions that are free and open to the public:
"Geometric Elegance: Art in the Age of Computational Beauty," is the first property-wide exhibit in a cycle of exhibitions that will be revolving three times a year. It will feature the very best painters and sculptors working today, each approaching geometric art from a different angle, expanding on the visual opulence of Hard Edge painting, the optical effects of large-scale murals and the monumental impact of sculptural forms. Artists included in this show are James Angel, Rowan Burkham, Jeff Davis, Peter Deise, Leenie Engle, Lori Fenn, Daniel Funkhouser, Lisa Von Hoffner, Travis Ivey, Mike Jacobs, Carrie Marill, Mark Pomilio, Travis Rice, Rembrandt Quiballo, Jayson Ward, RJ Ward, Grant Wiggins, and Ben Willis.
"In Sequence," is a two person exhibition featuring the work of Jeff Davis and Grant Wiggins. Both artists work in series to create abstract, graphic, and bold imagery but use radically different means and subject matter as inspiration for their individual artistic practices. This month-long exhibition will be held in the new FOUND:RE Contemporary gallery, which is a standalone building on the property at FOUND:RE Phoenix Hotel, just off the historic Portland Street.
