Mark Penxa: New works - 2015
Opening Reception September 12, 7-10pm
Show Runs September 12 - 26, 2015
We are thrilled to welcome back Mark Penxa to 1975 Gallery for a solo exhibition of new works. Mark will be joining us for the opening reception.
Taking its name from tempting, vacuous "click bait" headlines; "You Won't Believe What Happens Next..." exhibits a brand new series of paintings from Detroit-based artist Mark Penxa.
Highlighted in this exhibition are 10 wooden sliding boxes which Penxa calls "Personality Profiles". On the outside the boxes appear to be an abstract portrait, but each box slides open to reveal a deeper, interior painting. "I have alway been enamored with how easily you can hide behind a profile . . . Visually, social media has always been a 'sliding door' idea with me,” says Penxa.
You Won't Believe What Happens Next... also includes new works on paper, over thrift shop paintings, and on handmade canvas, compiled and created over the last year, inspired by Penxa’s fascination and frustration with early internet imagery and misinformation.
Currently the resident artist for Stereo Skateboards, Penxa previously held a position of 'satellite artist' at Girl Skateboards for over ten years and art directed the highly popular "Mountain Lab" series for DC Shoe Co.
This is Penxa's first solo exhibition in the United States. In 2011, a career retrospective entitled "Leap into the future" was held at MEL Space gallery in Moscow, Russia.

June 6, 2015 - WITH LOVE FROM THE NO COAST
Midwest touring show curated by Josef Zimmerman
Opening on June 6th, 1975 Gallery will host With Love From The No Coast, a group exhibition curated by Josef Zimmerman. On view till June 27th, the exhibition will feature new and bold works by 6 artists from the landlocked regions of America and 1 artist from the chosen anchor gallery.
The exhibit will shoulder the idea that the modern movement has broken down the barriers of distance and standard model of the art world. This new series will showcase emerging and established artists from the middle of America. The chosen artists are then showcased on a given coast in hopes of opening up communication between the communities. The old walls and guards of the art world decaying with the rise of the Internet and publications. Through these new tools artists are empowered and informed. With Love From The No Coast demonstrates this new idea as the series will grow and travel from coast to coast.
This cross-section of artists are a part of the exciting time in opening up art across the nation instead of limiting it.
With Love From The No Coast will include works from:
Justin Henry Miller

Draft is an annual student-run publication and exhibition, featuring the work of photography students at the Rochester Institute of Technology. In it’s twelfth edition, Draft aims to create an engaging discourse around contemporary photography and self-publishing.
Beginning as a bet between a professor and a group of students, Draft challenged the notion of producing a collaborative body of work outside of the curriculum. The final product was a stapled packet of photographs, a magazine as an art object, and a symbol of the creative drive that connected that group of students with their work and with one another. It has now evolved into a multitude of forms: hardcover editions, video projections, and curated exhibitions.
This drive fuels Draft 12, which has continued to receive a strong sense of support and recognition from the photographic community. It has been the nature of the publication to reinvent itself every year, pushing the boundaries of a student-run initiative and representing the dialogue amongst students.
This year, Draft 12 presents the work of 21 artists from the School of Photographic Arts & Sciences. The carefully curated sequence of photographs, collages, and moving media represent the contemporary ideas and interests of emerging artists at RIT.

An exhibition of new work involving the use of Bullseye Glass by the faculty, students, studio residents and studio staff of the Rochester Institute of Technology Glass Program.
invisibilia highlights the inquisitive dynamic of a unified glass department; a department defined by the various modes of approach within each department member’s relationship with the material. The common denominator metaphorically resides in contemplations of clarity . . . of using glass to look for unseen potential within a curious perception of what has impact and leaves meaning upon our human experience.

BLESS THIS MESS
New Works By Adam Francey
We have extended BLESS THIS MESS for one more week! You can still get in to see this show in person until Friday March 6, 2015! We'll be having a closing reception on Friday, March 6 from 7-9pm.
To commemorate the end of the exhibition, Adam will be releasing a very special edition of 5 hand-embellished prints of his fantastic ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY! Unlike the normal edition, these prints are 19"x25" and are adorned with watercolor embellishments. Each print is unique and available for $150 on a first-come, first-served basis at the closing reception starting at 7pm.
One of the original three artists from 1975's first show, inauguration in 2008, Adam brings his signature style to a brand new body of works on paper and wood. This is the second in our series of solo shows revisting our roots.
Adam will also be releasing his first art print of his work specifically for this show, printed by our good friends at HTB Press.
About the Adam and the show:
Adam Francey has worked in Rochester, New York as a professional tattoo artist for 14 years. He received his Bachelors Degree in Illustration and his Graduate Degree in Fine Art from the Rochester Institute of Technology.
Adam’s career has consisted of multiple solo shows as well as collaborations and his artwork has been featured in Studio Art Magazine. Adam is also one half of Man Crafts, a small business that creates hand made cigar box guitars and more traditional folk-rooted artwork. In 2013, he participated in Rochester's ongoing mural project WALL\THERAPY and most recently created a mural for the University of Rochester's Baby Labs in 2014.
For “Bless This Mess,” Francey is showcasing his long held interest in folk art. With each painting, he has focused on a singular image and wanted to create artwork with intricate details and compositions that are easily read. He combines his well-known collage style of painting with the precision and focus of his tattoos. Francey has pushed himself in a new direction with his drawing and painting and created a clean and uniformed show based on the evolution of his artistic decision-making.

UNDER THE INFLUENCE
New works from John Perry and Pen1
Opening Reception Saturday June 7, 2014 from 7-10pm
Show runs June 7 - June 28, 2014
1975 is thrilled to bring you the power combo of John Perry and Pen1 this June! The duo are dipping back into the pool of all the things that made them who they are today in a body of new originals and screen printed works. John Perry will also be a muralist in this July's WALL\THERAPY!
About John Perry:
In his own words: "Born and raised in Rottenchester New York. I paint and I draw but not necessarily in that order. Art found me, I didn't find it and so many years later we still have a love/hate relationship."
Pen1 is an artist and graphic designer best known for his street art in and around Rochester in the 1990's and into 2000. His love of Rochester graffiti and its growth inspired him to establish the iconic legal walls behind Village Gate, home to some of Rochester's most revered urban art.
In 1996 he formed the painting crew TWD with painting partner Det and Onorok who became known for their unorthodox styles and prolific painting.
In 1997, along with The Village Gate, DJ Too Chill, and DJ Silly Cutty, he organized Rochester's first graffiti expo. The event brought together hip hop creatives from all over the east coast and Canada for a two-day outdoor expo, leading to the return of local graffiti icons and Pen1 influence, Pose 2, and Change.
He joins one of his closest painting partners, John Perry, for Under The Influence. Pen1 credits John with being one of the most talented Rochester graffiti artists of the 90s and an inspiration towards his own work.
Working in screen printing for Under The Influence, Pen1's works are a fun and graphic look at several influences that have inspired him over the years and his time painting in Rochester.
Pen1 currently lives Baltimore where he works as graphic designer and teaches. He previously worked as a designer for Nike, Major League Baseball, and the National Hockey League. His personal work has been exhibited in Hong Kong, Montreal, Australia, Baltimore, and NYC.

"In ancient times,
The land lay covered in forests.
Where from ages long past,
Dwelt the spirits of the Gods.
Man and beast lived in harmony.
But as time went by,
Most of the great forests were destroyed.
Those that remained,
Were guarded by gigantic beasts,
Who owed their allegiance to the great forest spirit.
For those were the days of Gods,
And of Demons."
- From Princess Mononoke.

Ryan Bubnis and Lucas Irwin
Opening Reception - Saturday June 1, 7-10pm
Show runs June 1 - June 29
Black And Blue began with the simple prompt of two friends creating bodies of work that featured a cohesive, limited, color palette. Within these constraints Ryan Bubnis and Lucas Irwin work through a series of new drawings, paintings and sculpture. This exhibition explores themes of restraint, resilience, friendship, collaboration and mark-making.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Ryan Bubnis’ work has been described as “modern folk.” Through his paintings, illustrations, design and mural work, he comments on themes relating to the human condition.
Working both traditionally and digitally, he incorporates a range of mediums that include found objects, paper, wood, canvas, aerosol, acrylics, cel vinyl, Papier-Mâché, graphite and India ink. He draws inspiration from life, love, graffiti, folk and outsider art from a variety of cultures.
Bubnis has collaborated with a number of commercial clients and his work has been exhibited in galleries and museums across the U.S. and abroad. He is currently an Assistant Professor at The Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon.
Lucas Irwin is an artist, designer, and maker best known for his work in the world of designer toys and helping to launch the genre-creating, indy DIY Magazine Readymade. Influenced by the urban landscape, architecture, heavy machinery, instructional manuals, schematics, and popular culture, Lucas builds complex images by weaving together and dissecting these references. His work has been exhibited across the U.S., U.K., and Japan.
