“Here’s The Thing…”
Group Art Exhibition

Opening reception Friday, February 3rd from 6-9pm!

stop-gap projects is pleased to present our first show of 2023! Here’s The Thing… is a group exhibition featuring the work of Perla SegoviaKenni DankertBella VarelaMarta LeeAnna Brody, and Leah Netsky. The exhibition will open on February 3rd and run through February 24th. Join us for the opening reception Friday, February 3rd from 6-9pm.

This playful exhibition recognizes the aliveness in things. According to “thing theory,” coined by Bill Brown in 2001, objects become things once they no longer achieve their original function or intent; they are either broken or deemed outdated and therefore unusable. The six artists in the exhibition were selected based on their creative dedication to thingness. This could be things embedded with narrative, things that are repurposed into something new, things that are activated for memory or intimacy, or things that serve as totems, carrying the energy of something that once was. Each artwork recognizes the magic in things, and perhaps even deems them more powerful than the objects they once were.

“Simplicity” by Jessie Cargas

Introducing Simplicity! a 6.5 ft tall sculpture located between Orr Street Studios and Balsamo Warehouse.

Inspirations come from within and daily experiences. Jessie’s sculptures represent what is real and what is conceptual. She continues to work on a variety of shapes, sizes, contemporary and abstract pieces. From creating designs, to welding, to the finishes on the sculptures, are the things that keep her most inspired, motivated and driven.

Jessie has shown her work at art festivals, local galleries, garden centers, art strolls and on her website: weldmadeart.com. Jessie has honed her skills by learning from others, the internet and practice, practice, practice. She focuses on metal sculpting and her business she created, Weld Made Art Works, LLC.  She is not limited to certain conventions, but open to exploring new ideas and trying different things, while simultaneously adding her own unique style. Jessie’s passion for completeness and quality is seen in every piece created.

Speaking of the Arts

Mid-Missouri is fortunate to have a weekly radio program focused on visual art, music, literature, and more. Speaking of the Arts hosted by Diana Moxon the former Executive Director of the Columbia Art League interviews art makers and explores all aspects of creative expression.
