Do/Undo presents the earliest and the most recent of Thea Clark’s artwork over a ten-year period on the theme of the conflict between nature and the built environment due to accelerating climate change.
The earliest work began after the former New Jersey resident experienced Hurricanes Irene and Sandy. These two catastrophic weather events in a short period of time left an indelible emotional impact, while time spent volunteering in Staten Island after Sandy led to absorbing powerful scenes of destruction.

Forms Follow Function: The Art of Nanette Carter
January 23 - April 24, 2022
Forms Follow Function includes work from two of the artist’s series, Cantilevered and The Weight. Carter refers to herself as a chronicler of our time, taking intangible ideas around contemporary issues and finding a way to present them in an abstract vocabulary of form, line, color, and texture.
Cantilevered adopts an architectural term that refers to horizontal structures supported at only one end. Precariously balanced, they suggest the uncertainty and instability of twenty-first century lives. The Weight pays homage to the mysteries of nature, human nature, and the contemporary burdens we bear in the 21st century.

Malcolm Mobutu Smith: Evermore Nevermore
January 23 - April 24, 2022
Evermore Nevermore features ceramic work inspired by concerns, fears, and uncertainties from ongoing social-political frictions. It is the continuation of a series that started more than a decade ago with the inauguration of our nation's first Black president. According to the artist, this accomplishment peeled back the thin veil hiding the hate pulsing and seething through our country.
