Green Screen: Mackenzie Browning
Mackenzie Browning’s exhibit Green Screen opens October 22 in the Mariani Gallery. Browning's aesthetic can be described as bold, meticulous, and inventive, often blurring the lines between design, craft and fine art.

Super Synthetic: Jodi Stuart
Jodi Stuart creates a techno-toxic playground in her latest site-specific installation, Super Synthetic at Mariani Gallery. The exhibition will feature ambitious, large-scale 3D printed works such as a faux climbing wall comprised of Stuart's "Knot" works and a hanging swing made from plastic playground/saftey hardware colored in "saftey yellow". A riot of color and texture that attracts and repels, Super Synthetic invites playful associations with intensely tactile materials, causing the viewer to contantly resist squeezing, picking up, and touching the work.
