ON VIEW – Galleri Urbane’s current group show Distant Snapshots, provides a look at the overall artistic vision of the gallery while also offering a preview of what to anticipate from solo exhibitions in the coming months. The exhibition shares its title with a brand new video work by Arden Bendler Browning, just one of many artists in the show with an upcoming solo exhibition. The video is an extension of Browning’s painting practice, transforming the artist’s abstractions on panel into a virtual landscape. The version in Distant Snapshots is only a small preview of the fully immersive virtual reality experience planned for Browning’s November exhibition. Other artists with upcoming exhibitions include Heath West, whose paintings have evolved to be larger in scale and include more complex architectural detail; Samantha McCurdy, whose sold out 2018 exhibition has set expectations high for her sophomore solo show in October; and Benjamin Terry, who has continued to hone his uniquely crafted paintings after an impressive first exhibition earlier this spring.
