Room 01: Sara Meltzer Gallery is proud to present Rendered, a
group show of works on paper by 46 artists. The term "rendered"
references the specific action of depiction, the instantaneous visual
result of an idea. Historically, work on paper has been viewed as the
predecessor to larger works, inherently raw in its process. As artists
continue to push the limits of the medium, it has grown to warrant its
own attention. This grouping of artists—emerging to established—presents
a survey of current trends, as established through a continuum of works
wrapping around the gallery, related visually, materially, and theoretically.

Room 02: Sara Meltzer Gallery has accumulated texts and information on
all of the included artists in the show.
Video Wall: Sara Meltzer Gallery is proud to present Shannon Plumb's Tack.
Plumb references the film work of Stan Brakhage, a filmmaker known for
his manipulation of composition and it's striking effects. After drawing
onto each film cell, the artist interacts on film with these drawings,
borrowing bits from old theatrical and cinematic forms. The result is
video that pays homage while overturning nostalgia.
Summer hours: Tuesday – Friday, 11am-6pm
