'Everything Flows' exhibit at Roz Steiner Gallery opens Oct. 8
Nate Hodge's "Everything Flows" exhibit opens Oct. 8 at the Rosalie "Roz" Steiner Art Gallery at Genesee Community College.
It will feature the mixed media work of Nate Hodge, a Brockport native. Two opening receptions are planned on Oct. 8: from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.; and again later that day from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. Prior to the first reception, Hodge will be giving a lecture about his work in the Gallery at 12:30 p.m. All events are free and open to the public.
Hodge uses art to explore his observations through their temporality. Delicate forms develop and dissolve amidst the various layers of his work. Applying the same principle, the last moments of each painting set the parameters for the beginning of the next, creating a continuous flow among each exhibited work.
An accomplished, contemporary painter, Hodge is indirectly influenced by everything he has experienced in his 36 years, from food to family. Hodge took an interest in art at a young age and dreamed of a career as an artist.
"With my paintings I try to understand things through their temporality," Hodge writes of his works. "How I paint begins with what I observe happening around me, observations which can come from nearly anything."
His work has recently been displayed at Main Street Arts (Clifton Springs), the SUNY Global Center (New York City) The College at Brockport, The University of Buffalo, and several exhibitions in Buffalo and Rochester.
Hodge is the 2014 recipient of the Elliott Painting Award presented by The University at Buffalo, as well as the 2013 recipient of the Alumni Portfolio Award and the Maurice J. Moss Award presented by The College at Brockport.
"Everything Flows" will be displayed in the gallery through Nov. 25. The exhibit can be viewed during regular gallery hours, which are Monday through Friday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. For more information on all upcoming events at the Roz Steiner Art Gallery visit www.genesee.edu/gallery or www.facebook.com/gccgallery.
