Opening Reception – Fall 2014 Exhibitions


The PAA is pleased to present three exciting solo exhibitions by artists Christina Day, Lauren Dombrowiak, and Heather Ujiie.  Please join us on Thursday, Sept. 11th, for an opening celebration of the following exhibitions:


Christina P. Day: Fifth Wall

Inspired by the phrase, "fifth wall," used by the interiors industry to describe the concealment of an overhead floor that creates a truly closed space, Christina Day’s exhibition considers spatial inversions of surface and place. Ranging from object-based sculpture to site-specific architectural installation, common interior surfaces and materials are re-assigned to associate with unlikely forms and objects. Patterns are superimposed on themselves, while repeated objects amplify their reality and awareness.

Lauren Dombrowiak: An Edifice Spectrum

Heavily influenced by Victorian decorative motifs found in the home, Lauren Dombrowiak creates entire environments that include tower-like sculptural forms crated out of dinnerware and other household objects such as mirrors and wood furnishings. For this exhibition, the she will present two interrelated projects. The first project will consist of several large-scale sculptural towers of sourced porcelain dinnerware combined with oversized, hand cut wall stencils based on Victorian paisley motifs. As a counterpoint to this artificiality constructed landscape, Dombrowiak will create a more ethereal experience in a second gallery using much materials found in nature, lit from the interior, and paired with home decor and accessories.

Heather Ujiie: Erotic Alchemy

Textile artist and designer Heather Ujiie incorporates many techniques--including hand painting, drawing, stitching, and printing with innovative large-format digital printing technology--to create an immersive Utopia that she describes as “ a celebration of the unconscious.” Using digitally created textile panels and upholstered furnishings, accompanied by audio recordings from nature and digital animation, the artist will create a complete sensorial environment that reflects her interests in biodiversity and the future of our environs.
