“The first stroke is the one that counts”.

Ecclesiastical lawyers devised special punishments for the exceptional crimes of witchery and heresy. The Spanish Inquisition used an elaborate range of instruments to fight against those evil works of the devil.

Dysfunctional Society

Digital artist-architect J. F. Bautista highlights a devastating domain of unfamiliar landscapes and heterogeneous architectures, nature drained away and reduced to rubble and dust. Bautista’s discordant and strange images allude to days end, survival, and ultimately the end of our society. He imagines a world where the unexpected presence of dysfunctional structures rise from the fragments of a fallen society and environmental collapse, factories, smoke stacks, nuclear power plants. Bautista delivers an essential ethical message of the dangers of environmental degradation and transcends the viewer beyond our time and our uncertain future.

LIC-Artists Fear Returns

A Fine Art Horror Exhibition and Independent Horror Film Festival

Curated by Tessa Kennedy and Jason Artiga.

LIC Fear Returns is the second incarnation of a horror themed art show that brings us back to the nostalgia of what gave us fear  during our adolescence. Artwork should include themes surrounding  the supernatural, horror movies, literature, legends, the monsters under our bed and the demons in the closet.  The spook that made us jump, lose sleep, or just made us laugh after the adrenaline wears off, inspires this exhibition.

LIC Fear Returns is both a month-long fine art show and an independent horror film festival that runs the last weekend of the exhibition.

UNNATURAL SELECTION

Curated by Craig Norton

An exhibition highlighting species endangered by human activity and the effects it will have on our world: over-harvesting, pollution, habitat destruction, introduction of invasive species, over-hunting, exotic animal trade and trophy hunting, among other influences. Although global climate change is a major cause for species extinction, this exhibition will be focusing on the endangered animals themselves and the possible effects of their removal for the ecosystem.

Opening Reception:
Saturday, September 8
On View: August 30 – September 30 at
