Perennial Small Space: Final exhibit of the year, ‘Everyone Needs an Outlet,’ opening December 9

“Perennial Small Space”: An immersive, interactive experience with local art is opening its final exhibit of the year, ‘Everyone Needs an Outlet’ on December 9, 5-9 p.m.

The minimalist paintings are by Jack Seiter.

Over the past five months, the 10×10 foot store front of the Mutual Building at 625 Madison Avenue has been transformed into an immersive gallery experience where local artists have had their work on display.

December marks the last show left to finish out the 2017 season.

Attendees have enjoyed captivating viewing experiences unique to each show, with every detail of the intimate space in control of the artist. The installations surround the viewer to create a multi-sensory exploration beyond the traditional white walls, giving the artists an opportunity to allow people to experience their work like never before. The gallery has displayed art in a variety of mediums including sculpture, mixed media drawing, and paint.

Since opening in July, curator Devan Horton, along with the partnership of Renaissance Covington and the Mutual Building, have successfully put on five installations featuring the works of Xan Conner, Randy Godawa, Chris Gibson, Logan Walden, and herself.

“We have had sculptures that you can physically handle, transformed the space into a new environment simulating the deep woods, a live mural painted by the artist throughout the duration of the exhibition, given people the chance to play detective while sorting through some of our country’s most notorious conspiracy theories, and taken a trip into alien worlds with surreal landscape paintings and narratives,” says Horton. “To finish us out, we are stripping down to the basics and finding aesthetic qualities in mundane objects.”

Everyone Needs and Outlet is a collection of minimalist paintings by Jack Seiter forcing the viewer to change their perspective on everyday objects. The artist believes that even items such as the common power outlet can inspire and intrigue us if looked at in a new way.

Gallery hours are Friday-Sunday 12-5 p.m.
