This evening from 6 to 8 pm, Driscoll Babcock Galleries in Chelsea will present the opening reception for In Between Days, a group exhibition that includes work by VCS faculty member Kara Rooney. Here are two excerpts from the show’s press release:

DRISCOLL BABCOCK GALLERIES presents In Between Days, a group exhibition featuring artists whose works are situated in the liminal spaces between memory and loss, dreams and reality, the scientific and the spiritual, the present and the past. Through explorations that push the bounds of their artistic practices, Leonardo Benzant, Michael Maxwell, Jennifer Packer, Kara Rooney, and Luke Whitlatch express the universality contained within individual phenomena.

[…] Kara Rooney’s delicate sculptures, from the series On Moving Farther Away from Speech, or Hindsight is Never Twenty/Twenty, study the openly interpretative nature of language and poetry. Employing literal transformative elements (ice, water, and gas) to explore slipping memory, social interaction and actual event, she highlights how language’s inherent blind spots affect our sense of collective consciousness.

In Between Days will run from June 19th to August 8th, 2014 at Driscoll Babcock Galleries, located at 525 West 25th Street in New York City. For business hours and other information, visit the gallery’s website; you can also contact them at (212) 767-1852 or info@driscollbabcock.com.
