Cycle 6 Makes an Intriguing Impact, Cycle 7 to debut in 2014
Red Bull House of Art is continuing its contribution to the cultural and creative landscape of Detroit's internationally recognized art scene with the unveiling of its sixth cycle of artists on Friday, November 15 with a public gallery opening. This will be the last exhibition of the year.
The eight artists selected for this cycle have drawn upon an array of influences and tools to bring their artistic visions to life. From Sydney G. James' enthralling "House of Mirrors" series to Tadd Mullinix's Armenian-influenced abstract expressionism and Abby Tagë Lee's introspective ink blot dissections, no medium was left behind. Dessi Terzieva's collage work delves into what inspires us about classic sculpture, while Michael Eugene Burdick opens up his personal sketchbook for all patrons to see on opening night. Paula Schubatis' art literally links to color and texture via woven fibers, Jay Oscar's lush and challenging abstract pieces use a nontraditional style to tell stories, and Joshua A. Gaudette dissects animalistic every day life. It's truly a treat to see the work of these local artists come alive in the heart of Detroit.
The gallery, built out directly below the artists' dedicated workspace in the E & B Brewery Lofts, was built in 1891 and renovated by local architect Tadd Heidgerken, Red Bull House of Art blends traditional New York-style gallery space with raw, cavernous rooms unique to Detroit's rich architectural history.
The eight featured artists in the fifth cycle are: Sydney G. James (Acrylic on Mirror), Tadd Mullinix (Acrylic Paintings & Decoupage), Abby Tagë Lee (Ink), Dessi Terzieva (Collage & Mixed Media), Michael Eugene Burdick (Mixed Media), Paula Schubatis (Oil Paint & Woven Fiber) Jay Oscar (Inks & Acrylics), and Joshua A. Gaudette (Mixed Media).
