Emil Salto: Light Forms

Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Thursdays, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. and Sundays, 1-5 p.m. Continues through Dec. 1
phone 336.397.2107

For Danish artist Emil Salto, light experiments are a form of intuitive yet systematic inquiry. The results of Salto’s experiments are carefully modulated interactions with light and shadow: monochromes, photograms, and films. Salto uses light as an agent, through which we can touch on questions of time and space, optics and perception. For his first solo museum exhibition in the United States, several series of photographs and films are shown together. The artist has also created two light and color installations that reach beyond the discrete image to envelop the viewer and choreograph shadows. free

Horizon Line: An Art Exhibition

Through Dec. 12

A horizon line is formed where we observe the edge of the earth meeting the sky. It happens in a space that is almost tangible, where we could seemingly travel, except that as we approach, our changing perspective produces a new distant edge. This dynamic space offers metaphors of consciousness meeting the unconscious, the known and the unknown, and an evolving, intangible finish line. Works by Queens Professor Emeritus Rick Crown, Professor Jane Johnson and Assistant Professor Denny Gerwin will address this theme in a variety of media. Free

A Love Supreme – Robert Mars featuring Jay West

Through Dec. 15

Robert Mars’ work is defined by pop culture icons. In this collection, you’ll find African-American legends that include Muhammad Ali, Lena Horne, John Coltrane, Michael Jackson and Martin Luther King Jr., a key figure in the series. Photos, collage and neon bursts of paint embrace the pop art movement and emphasize the significance of these legends. (Anita Overcash)

The Boxing Gym

Through Dec. 18

Using photographs, poetry and film, artists de’Angelo Dia and Shaun El C. Leonardo have created an exhibit based around a former boxer whose career has gone from glory to gloom. In the exhibit, we see the boxer in an abandoned gym with punching bags and debris on the floor around him. This former “macho” man sits with no punches to be thrown, as the exhibit makes a statement about the kickback associated with pain. (Anita Overcash) Free admission

Cristina Toro: Casa en el Cielo

Through Dec. 19

The New York-based artist is proud of her native country of Puerto Rico and her former home in Florida. That’s clear when viewing nature and animals that emerge in her work. Her paintings, often resembling tapestries, are filled with symbols and hidden meanings. They have a curious feel that’s worth the “time and silence.” (Also, the exhibit’s title comes from a song by singer Cesária Évora.) (Anita Overcash)
