THE BANK OF CASTILE MAIN GALLERY

The Traveling Ghost by Ryan Gustman

Dates: September 13 - November 3, 2018

Reception: September 20, 2018 from 6-8pm

Artist Statement:

I am a twenty-six year old resident of Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  I was diagnosed with high-functioning autism spectrum disorder and ADHD early in life.  With no formal training, over the last three years I have gone from using my cell phone to a 70 D Canon, always using a manual setting, never taking more than three photos of one spot.  I found that engaging in urban exploration in order to preserve and document abandoned buildings helped me to emerge from my autism chrysalis to a passionate, communicative photographer, or some call an artist or an active participant in the history of Winston- Salem.

"This is my escape, this is my release, for others long forgotten, to me a playground. I share my experiences in this exhibit traveling up towards New York from my home town of Winston-Salem North Carolina through photography and risk."

Rhythms of Nature

by Christopher McGee

Dates: October 11 - December 8, 2018

Reception: October 18, 2018 from 6-8pm

 Artist Statment:

“The Rhythms of Nature” is an ongoing art series that I started in 2008. This series was inspired by observing the landscapes during road trips and around my own surroundings in Western New York: fields, forests, waterfalls and of course, snowstorms. 
Mixed-media is the perfect flexible visual tool to portray the physical effects of the natural world. I utilize splattering, layering, washes and smearing together many materials such as spackling, charcoal, oil pastels with acrylic and latex paint. These processes emulate the erosion, flooding, textures, color, light, shadow and changes of season of the physical landscape. 
As this series progressed, I gradually expanded into other areas of nature such as interstellar phenomena and the psychological effects of color. My past experiences playing drums in experimental and improvisational noise bands has helped me to visually express some of the more mercurial, unpredictable elements in the universe: earthquakes, meteor showers, supernovas and black holes.

I enjoy art in all forms and see art in everything that is life it self. Sketching, painting, photography, sculpting, I enjoy participating in all kinds of art projects like that. Art is a loss of thought and flow of self.
