Off the Grid explores the formal, social, and environmental aspects of the grid. The exhibition presents works of art that offer alternative ways of engaging the grid as a structure, tool, device, motif, form, or system. Each artist in Off the Grid challenges in some way the grid’s discursive and conceptual confines, attempting to liberate its structural coordinates through concept and form.

2nd SaturGay is a monthly art and community showcase that takes place as part of the Midtown 2nd Saturday Art Walk. This showcase is dedicated to celebrating specific populations within the LGBTQ community through art, poetry, music, and other mediums. The event includes art or performance, food and drink, and a lively atmosphere that celebrates the diversity and talent of our community.
This show is all about the process of realizing who you are on the inside and challenging others to accept and question what they feel is acceptable or attractive.
The beginning of this process is a little tortured, showing that internal struggle with tight hands and feet clenching. The middle process of removing clothing represents that turning point within, letting go of all that struggle to expose the true self. Then lastly the confident gender fluid souls, beautiful in their own way and challenging the viewer to see the beauty that they see in themselves.

i could go on forever is Gillian Alexandra Kalisky’s love letter to the place of her birth, California’s central valley. Shot over a decade of living on the east coast and abroad, the work in the exhibition follows Kalisky’s travels throughout the world while always returning home. Drawing on an array of influences, the project is heavily process based. Taking cues from Eggleston, Ruscha, and the New Topographics, man’s influence on the natural landscape holds a place of high importance in the work. Analogue processes, such as Polaroid and silver gelatin, are also integral.

Art of Brandon Gastinell
July at White Buffalo Gallery
Brandon’s work is saturated in modern pop culture with bold, bright colors and contrast. His work is all about staging compelling contrasts and juxtapositions of collage. The life and death balance is something that flows through each piece as well as blurred line between the beautiful and the monstrous. He exposes just how thin the line between the two can be. He, as always, intends to challenge the viewers perspective with his stylistic interruptions.
Join us 5-8pm on Thursday and Saturday for opening Receptions for his new show entitled “Hi, my name is Brandon Gastinell.”
Looking forward to seeing you there.

White Buffalo Gallery is excited to present “Perfectly Detached” the Art of Laura Caron.
“It happened late October, sometime after 11 a.m., the day following elective surgery. I stood up from my hospital bed, and could hardly breathe; my heart started to betray me. Surprisingly, I was very calm, and it almost felt like I was witnessing the moment and not living it.
This is when I almost died.
For the next few days I floated in and out of consciousness. It is hard to describe this state of being. I felt perfectly detached from the rest of the world, yet completely safe and enveloped in love.
Now, five months after what I can only describe as a near death experience, I find myself striving to hold on to those feelings.
These small works of art remind me of those fragmented days, and the great gift that was given to me.”
Come enjoy an evening filled with these beautiful and inspiring works.
Opening Reception Thursday April 9th 5-8pm
Second Saturday April 11th 5-8pm
