The Outer Limits

April 4 – May 13, 2024

Reception: Sunday, April 7, 2-4 pm

With a retro nod to the 50s fascination with outer space, we asked artists to tap into their personal “outer limits” for this unusual exhibit. We prompted artists to draw on their childhood memories of such TV shows as “The Outer Limits” and the “Twilight Zone.” Or, a different angle of the same subject could come from more recent obsessions over mysterious white balloons, the colonization of other planets, or the Webb telescope, providing us with mind-boggling celestial glimpses from the beginning of time. Most importantly, we ask artists to question their own personal “outer limits” as creators in this new world where, for example, artificial intelligence is currently challenging our perception of creativity. Regardless of the inspiration, the purpose of this exhibit is to play with the edge and to push the limits and test the outer boundaries.

Ann Kalb – Featured 3-d Artist

An architecture enthusiast and former mosaic artist, born and raised in Los Angeles, Ann found her calling in art glass, with a distinct focus on mid-century modern design as a primary influence. Fired at over a thousand degrees, these unique and clean-lined pieces express an interpretation of the consistent aesthetic of late 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and early 70’s, as line and color become infused with a contemporaneous edge. Both functional and decorative, the work maintains an integrity as original art, with a utilitarian purpose, all with that Mid-Century Modern hallmark.
