  • Welcome to the latest exhibit at S.Dot Gallery."Why are Dot and Dorrie waiting expectantly at the door?" you ask. Well.....

  • S.Dot Gallery took a trip to Bethesda Fountain and Dot and Dorrie miss their gallery. This is our April artist taking measurements in Central Park.

  • Welcome M. Chevali, we are so excited to have a NYC artist exhibiting with us!

  • M.Chevali and the S.Dot Gallery director have been planning this exhibit for 18 months! It was wonderful that M.Chevali got to see it before her installation.

  • Let's see what our artist is up to. OOOOHHH, looks like we are in for a real treat!

  • Our artist hard at work making furniture choices.

  • S.Dot Gallery is pleased to present "Between the Walls : new work by Marcy Chevali"

  • It looks as if S.Dot Gallery got a blanket of love upon her return home to Columbus, Ohio!

  • Wow, just beautiful!

  • Let's read M.Chevali's artist statement......

  • right after we take a closer look at her delicate knitting technique.

  • "My work is wrapped, covered, bound, enclosed, knotted, hidden, surrounded. Paradoxically, it is often transparent, translucent or with gaping holes. I bring non physical things into a tangible existence to explore themes of emotional residue, control and its lack, and the impermanence of boundaries."

  • "I position the work so that particular aspects of it are parallel to the place in the body where that particular emotion is felt, or sometimes hang work low enough so that the viewer must physically reorient the body into a position more akin to the sensations in the work."

  • "I choose familiar and domestic materials such as thread, rice, dryer lint and found furniture, jars and kitchen utensils to form narratives that alter space, perception and interactions. My work is tinged with a sense of fairy tale wonder."

  • This work is just so awe inspiring.

  • We couldn't think of a more appropriate exhibit for S.Dot to have after her adventures away.

  • The exhibit has a peaceful way of repairing all the cuts and bruises S.Dot had on the journey.

  • It looks like our director has cats and margaritas on her mind! Let's keep exploring.

  • Speaking of cats......Dot and Dorrie must be in heaven with all this string! Where are those gallery assistants?

  • Hmmm...well the cats should be pretty easy to spot in this classic gallery setting.

  • Maybe they are upstairs?

  • Love how fragile and beautiful these shapes are!

  • The negative space is as striking as the positive.

  • Lets see if those kittens are upstairs shall we?

  • Ohhh! Look at the ceiling!

  • Looks like M.Chevali had a nice bottle of wine with some close friends.

  • Who was smoking the cigar?

  • As we appreciate the amount of time and care that went into the exhibit, let's read more of M.Chevali's statement.

  • "Usually achromatic, my work evokes a haptic sense of stillness and subtlety. Techniques of repetition and ambiguity give way to a slow and patient accretion. In this work, I choose to utilize knitting to further invoke the sense of nostalgia and the feminine space already present in the dollhouse."

  • "Since the viewer can not physically enter the space and must rely on imagination and projection, the knit sculptures are tactile and relatable."

  • "The knitting on the walls treats the architecture as if it is a body, protecting it and keeping it warm while the hanging sculptures can reference the internal body."

  • "They remain mutable enough to represent emotional or psychological states of tension or balance and also a cocoon or a spider web and its alternate sense of domesticity."

  • "With representations of a bodily interior within a knit skin, and the dollhouse situated inside a house, the interiors seem to mirror themselves into infinity."

  • Such a beautiful exhibition! But where are Dot and Dorrie?

  • hmmmm....

  • Oh here they are! M.Chevali gave them their very own arts to play with! Spoiled kittens!

  • Thanks so much for exhibiting with us M.Chevali! Its been an honor! XO
