Gallery Episode, a new gallery located in the heart of Leonia, presents Eureka! - a group exhibition from November 18 – December 9, 2023. Pulling inspiration from the Ancient Greek word meaning "I have found it," Eureka! is a show about the tenacity of the human spirit and the passion for seeking truth.
There will be an Opening Reception on November 18, 2023 from 4:00pm-6:00pm.
In this chaotic and complicated world, we are always searching and discovering our own truths about human nature. We search and find inspiration in some higher being, in the universe we live in, in our relationships with the people around us, or in ourselves – it is what makes us human. This show is a celebration of discoveries of personal truths despite the complexities of human life.
Eureka! is a group exhibition featuring artists Katharina Castiblanco Grammer, Jill Hellman, Joan Knauer, Elizabeth Rundquist, and Rachele Unter – all of whom are in the pursuit of finding their personal truths through their artmaking. Katharina Castiblanco Grammer plays with the tugging between representational observation and the desire to change and abstract in art. Jill Hellman utilizes layers – covering and revealing certain parts of her work – as a metaphor for the human experience. Joan Knauer finds inspiration in her inner landscape while exploring color relationships on the canvas. Elizabeth Rundquist finds joy in reaching the place where her art speaks through gestural mark making. Rachele Unter invites viewers to explore her visual language of colors and linework to find their own stories.
The artworks are an insight into both the artists’ own retrospection and introspection to find the thread that connects the narrative of our lives. As Gallery Episode’s grand opening exhibition, they invite viewers to find inspiration in the showcased art and look within themselves to see what makes them human.
