PUT on YOUR FACE and HAND ME DOWN is a group exhibition that explores the psychological relationships that we develop with the things that we wear as well as the general associations that are attached to different articles of clothing and fabrics to re-create reminiscence of the past. Like an overflowing closet, the space is filled with pieces that contain a variety of interpretations; clothing reduced down to its materiality to garments that contain a sentimental value equivalent to heirlooms. Exhibiting artists use photography, sculpture, installation, painting, video, and projection to explore these different connections.

Neil Daigle-Orians latest series, "heart on my sleeve," utilizes his old clothing to convey his fascination with tensions that exist between binary structures, gender, personal, private and digital space. Rose Nestler’s soft sculptures use associative psychological connotations of abstracted clothing to examine issues of power, attraction and gender. Expanding upon the clothing theme, Aaron Johnson mimics brush strokes with his selected medium of socks, elevating this humble item to a crafted artifact, simultaneously absurd and beautiful. Rebecca Ness is interested in how bodies interact creating new pattern and spatial form.
