THYE SPRENGERI IS A STUDIO GALLERY INTENDED FOR THE USE OF J. MICHAEL SIMPSON AND INVITED ARTISTS.
Last Seen is a collection of photographs that have been taken at the last place a species was seen in the wild before going extinct. Through extensive research lists of extinct species have been translated into visual context in order to create a photographic reference. Some of the research has led to re-tracing the footsteps of explorers who witnessed and documented [their] decline....
The title of this exhibition, “Here”, refers to the concept of presence. The artworks in this exhibition were created in response to a certain location, place, or reference. These pieces communicate through abstraction and, often, immediacy. Color, painted marks, and directional movement aim to create immersion between the viewer and the artwork. The paintings explore our ability to remember a place through our emotions and senses.
The locations within these paintings are beyond points on a map – instead they point to how we remember places. They move over and through
time and our past and present experiences.

Collected Papers is an exhibition of a body of work that is based on my artistic evaluation of the elements COLLECTED PAPERS the papers that I use. ‘Found’ and purchased papers from Thailand, India, Europe and North America all embody their own characteristics. The effectiveness of making the work is based upon an intuitive response and a rigorous process of organization, as I ‘shape’ each one to my specific ends. The satisfaction of viewing the work comes from the creation of an empathetic link between the artist, the image and the viewer, who must look beyond representation and respond to a poetic language often dependent on ambiguity and abstraction.

Sprengeri Studio Gallery is proud to present "Traverse", a collection of mixed-media works by the artist Amanda Foshag . Amanda seeks to explore, through two and three dimensional materials, aspects of the human experience to which we all can connect. Her work uses basic simplicities to surface and color as triggers for her personal experiences. Narratives, stories, journeys, and memories are what drive her creative process; a process that allows the viewer to trace through the feeling and emotive response present in her visual storytelling.
