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.
