To the Nines Exhibition at the TCM's Cafe Gallery

To the Nines is a small look at the work of the students from this summer's first internship course at The Contemporary Museum. The work covers a variety of media and topics, from Reid Tabata's bronze abstraction to the solitude of Aaron Nicholson's “Exhale.” The work of Sonia Castro and Ualani Davis both carry a sensitivity and strength with their own unique personal visions. Gideon Gerlt's sculpture seems caught in ether and decay as corrosion sets in. Yumiko Glover's pop-inspired take on Japanese subculture plays on boundaries between reality and fantasy. Heather Matsuura's small figures quietly ask to be discovered, playing in the surrounding space. Brandon Ng utilizes the intensity of his eye, eloquently capturing his subject matter through a lens. Mapping environments in 4 dimensions Rex Vlcek uses capsules of the mundane and often overlooked: dust.

Come visit The Contemporary Café Gallery and indulge in fine food and Fine Art!
