Footnotes: New Members, January 2020


COOP Gallery is pleased to present the first installment of its new member show titled “Footnotes.” Typically seen as a support to a larger body of work, the footnote becomes the main concern for artists Austin Reavis, Ellen Dempsey, and Evie Woltil Richner. Footnotes provide ancillary bits of information that seem less important but provide a deeper understanding of what is being read. In this spirit, Reavis, Dempsey, and Richner present one large piece amidst smaller, however not less significant, works.  With similar interests in mundane support systems like maintenance work, concrete and furniture, and the passing of time, these new members explore the footnote both literally and symbolically.
