The Hipp Gallery Proudly presents the Solo Exhibition by Josiah Lloyd

Big Fun

February 1 through March 10 at the Hipp Gallery

Hippodrome’s Art Gallery is thrilled to present a remarkable exhibition featuring the works of Florida-based painter, Josiah Lloyd. Despite working in different mediums Lloyd’s exhibition will only be showcasing paintings.

Josiah Lloyd has spent several years cultivating a powerful body of work that draws inspiration from different art practices. His artistic evolution into painting has been a journey marked by a keen focus on detail, a fusion of mediums, and a commitment to abstraction. The result is a collection of pieces that stand as a testament to Lloyd’s unique perspective on memory, visual language, and the interplay between them.

Lloyd’s paintings invite viewers to engage in the act of seeing through the lens of memory. He deliberately withholds visual information, prompting each viewer to interpret the artwork through their personal experiences. The meticulous placement of layers of tape throughout the painting, lifted later to reveal earlier marks, adds a temporal dimension, conveying a sense of time within the artwork.

The Hippodrome Theatre Art Gallery invites individuals or collaborators to submit proposals for solo or small group exhibitions during select dates throughout 2024. Proposals may be for existing or new work. Exhibitions average 4-6 weeks and include a public reception.

Please email artgallery@thehipp.org with any questions or to submit a proposal.

The Hipp Gallery Proudly presents the Solo Exhibition by Jorge Ibanez

Muses

March 11 through April 22 at the Hipp Gallery

This solo exhibition by Puerto Rican artist Jorge Ibanez, showcases his exploration of human experience and resilience. Ibanez’s art delves into historical traumas and the cycle of destruction and renewal, urging viewers to contemplate the present’s challenges and emphasizing artists’ role as preservers of humanity’s aspirations and fears. Based in Gainesville, Florida, Ibanez utilizes various mediums like pastel, watercolor, linocut, photography, and acrylic, drawing from his diverse career experiences as the Coordinator of Graphic Design Technology and Director of Information Technology at Santa Fe College, and co-founder of Emiliano’s Cafe in Downtown Gainesville. He sees his art as a celebration of curiosity and wonder in a world often overshadowed by disillusionment, encouraging viewers to maintain their capacity for marveling at life’s wonders.

The Art Gallery can also be rented for private functions.
