Join us for a special, extended-hours July First Friday (courtesy of Duke Energy) as we celebrate the public openings of Martine Gutierrez: WE & THEM & ME (in the Independent Weekly gallery) and 20 Years of Horse & Buggy Press (and Friends) (in the Media Lab).
WE & THEM & ME by Martine Gutierrez presents three series of Gutierrez’s work through photography (Line Ups and Girlfriends series), video (Martin(e). TV), and installation (Air Dolls: Confrontation series). Each series and the varying media and formats diversify the artist’s approach to viewer engagement with her work. The artist acts as subject, artist, and muse, documenting her personal transformation into various imagined roles.
20 Years of Horse & Buggy Press (and Friends) is a multi-media, mid-career retrospective celebrating the award-winning, book production, graphic design, and letterpress studio which got its start in Boylan Heights at Antfarm in 1996, and has been working out of downtown Durham since 2003. The exhibition, which opened at Cassilhaus on the banks of New Hope Creek in Orange County in May, focuses on the fine press book collaborations between Horse & Buggy Press and a diverse range of writers, photographers, visual artists, and historians.
