“For Salon’s fifth exhibition, I wanted to bring together a variety of creatives whose work would complement each other within the gallery space. From select furniture pieces from O&G Studio to environmently conscious oil paintings by Michel Droge and large scale ceramic and fiber home décor by Karen Gayle Tinney, I’m excited to offer my clients a complete vision to outfit a room.”
—Amanda Pratt, owner of Salon
Navigation is our fifth exhibition and features exclusive work from three dynamic creatives.
Artwork by Michel Droge—an abstract painter and printmaker living and working in Portland, Maine—cover the walls. Their work and research implicates the relationship between the environment and its living creatures. Six large scale original oil paintings place the viewer in the midst of global climate change and environment upheaval.
Also featured is the Rhode Island-based O&G Studio. Navigation marks the debut of Inlet, a new seating collection. Both easygoing and rigorous in design, the collection's forms are defined by generous proportions, crisp lines, and delicate spindles, which are completed by cushions and upholstery in rich leather and linen textiles accented by bold marbled textiles from Rule of Three.
Karen Gayle Tinney of Long Beach, CA shares three original large scale art pieces. Her passion for mixed material design and interest in fiber art is apparent within the new pieces as the ceramic components are hand built then assembled together with their fiber counterparts.
Lastly, three large hanging sculptures from Noble Goods—based out of Brooklyn, NY— round out the vibrant assortment. Molly FitzSimons and Christopher Moore make up Noble Goods and have perfected the process of seamlessly combining concrete, wood, and resin.
The exhibit runs from June 25 to August 25, 2019.
