Escape Velocity at Mirus Gallery
Mirus Gallery is pleased to announce Escape Velocity, a group exhibition showcasing works by artists Tom Berenz, Steve Budington, John Deardourff, Joshua Dildine, Michael Dotson, Julian Duron, Matthias Düwel, Sarah Emerson, Clark Goolsby, Daniel Healey, Dean Monogenis, Kenji Nakayama & Dana Woulfe, Pepa Prieto, Allison Renshaw, James Roper, Jaime Treadwell and Bas Zoontjens.
Escape Velocity is part II of the Mirus Gallery launch, which opened with Crucible, a group exhibition highlighting the artwork that inspired Paul Hemming to open Mirus Gallery. In Escape Velocity viewers will be welcomed to a second group show that foreshadows the future of the gallery’s programming.
The opening reception for Escape Velocity will be held on December 15, 2012 from 6pm – 10pm. The exhibition will be on view through January 26, 2013.
The term escape velocity is used in physics to describe the speed that is needed to “break free” from the earth’s gravitational pull. This concept is a metaphor for Mirus Gallery’s second show, which will be featuring a group of emerging and mid-career artists whose work marks the vision of how the gallery plans to move forward and break ground with its progressive programming.
