September 19, 2012 - October 26, 2012 Location: 1961 Adam Clayton Powell Blvd (at 118 st.) Gallery hours: Wed. to Sat. 12:00-7:00, Sun. 12:00-5:00   An exhibition of sculpture featuring the work of Leah Poller and Carlos DeMedeiros in a debut marriage of subject and style. The small-scale beds expertly sculpted by Leah Poller are a perfect foil for the intriguing mixed media miniature confessionals by Carlos DeMedeiros. Each artist tells a story. Not just their own story, but one that we all share in the same way: A narrative of myth and mystery. Together, their three dimensional fables of visual drama and imagined conversations blur the boundaries of art and theatre. ​ Leah's works are visual metaphors for the bed in all its literary and imaginary iterations, ranging from the lyrical to satirical, the ironic to iconic, the lovely to licentious, and the humorous to dark. Her multi-layered, fantastical beds are three-dimensional landscapes of the imagination that allow us to explore our usual perception of aesthetics, politics and social history. The tales that Carlos tells us are personal in a visceral way. His colorful and complex confessionals made from found objects tap into our religious memories, whatever the persuasion. Then, as if with unseen intervention, the visual strength and sincerity of his work amplifies our response to it.  Exhibiting Visual Artists: Carlos DeMedeiros Leah Poller
