Ground Floor Contemporary is pleased to present Phan-tas-ma-go- ri-a, a three-person exhibition featuring work by Birmingham artists Catherine Cabaniss, Maggie King, and Tara Stallworth Lee. Join us for the Opening Reception on Thursday, May 3 from 5:00-7:30.
Light can symbolize both truth and deception. Cabaniss, King, and Stallworth Lee investigate the capacity of fantasy and the problematics of beauty in Phan-tas-ma-go-ri-a. Cabaniss’s large scale prints and paintings examine the wonder and force of the environment. King uses real and imagined light to personify power dynamics, spirituality, and gender roles within an abstracted narrative context. Grounded in analog photography, Lee’s use of imagery as a figurative language peruses perceptions of human behavior, interpersonal relationships, and the relevance of the natural landscape to the human condition.
Gallery hours are on Sundays from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm and will include the following events:

MAY 13 2:00 pm Open Discussion: Graduate Schools, Residencies, Juried Shows, Publications, and more.
