  • Hello! Welcome to another wonderful exhibition. This month's curator and artist is the fantastic Chris Sunami.

  • HI Chris! Although we usually show installs with our artists, this month got a little hectic and Chris has been away on a few secret art missions. Please no questions, because then we'd have to...well you know.

  • S.Dot Gallery is pleased to present "Dreams and Nightmares: The Mirrot Cart Project With artists including Richard Duarte Brown, Rhonda Keels, Iola Brooke Simmons, Mari Sunami, Christopher Sunami and the Brown family."

  • Let's take a look around and hear more about the project from C.Sunami. "Ten years ago, I conceived the "mirrot" card project (with the name inspired by "tarot" and "mirror"), under the following guidelines. Each participant was to create twelve playing card sized images. The guidelines were as follows: The images were to be created at the size that they were reproduced. They were to be inspired by the artist's own dreams, nightmares or other personal iconographies. They were to include a border. They were to be untitled, unsigned, and include no text. They could be versions of prior artworks, but the images were to be created specifically for the project."

  • What an interesting concept, lets look at some of the results!

  • Dorrie seems to love sitting with the pieces.....and I think she is eyeing that cupcake too.

  • No Dorrie, you're sweet enough already!

  • Wow! These pieces are fantastic, lets head to the other side to see more!

  • With a stop to eat snacks of course!

  • Hey, who put the level in the bathroom? No wonder we can't find anything around here.

  • Is our director here? I believe that the Halloween pop-up was a hoax. She didnt REALLY do the things we said she did.

  • Hi Dot! Watch out for those paints....unless of course you feel like painting.

  • No director, let's turn up the tunes and keep enjoying the show.

  • Lets head upstairs.

  • Looks like a chess game is about to begin!

  • Hey, who drank all the coffee?

  • Looks like someone was here taking pictures, hope they got permission from the artists!

  • A very zen place...

  • to chill and discuss. Lets hear more from Chris about the project and then revisit them all again! " The idea was that these cards would be reproduced, and then distributed anonymously and without charge. While we never did much with the distribution and reproduction, quite a number of people (ranging from established professional artists to non-artists and schoolchildren) did participate in the project, and many reported finding it psychologically beneficial. One of professional artists even found it led to a creative breakthrough, and the creation of a new personal art style. This exhibit represents my own selection of the cards I found most evocative in the various decks I still have in my possession."

  • Thanks so much for sharing with us Chris and the artists! We have been looking forward to this exhibit for a very long time! Visitors, hope you enjoyed!
