Trestle Gallery presents Vatic Utterance with an opening reception on Saturday, April 8th, 2017, from 6 pm to 8 pm. On view through May 5th, 2017, the show is curated by Samuel Jablon.
Vatic Utterance is about the subtleties of abstraction and language and how the two can morph together and be separate. The work ranges from fragments of words and coded language, to visual poetry. It involves a mix of artists working today who incorporate language in the work through different means. The artists in the show might clash and might coalesce and represent different ideas about art, language, and painting.

ABOUT TRESTLE GALLERY
Trestle Gallery was founded in 2012 by artist and educator Rhia Hurt and a team of artists including Mary Negro and Ajit Kumar. Working in Gowanus, they became involved with the local artist community and soon discovered that many of their peers were lacking a supportive environment to develop their work and make connections with others in the art world. Wanting to meet this need, they started Trestle Gallery and began developing exhibition and educational programs with the goal of supporting local artists, curators, and educators and reach a greater community. The name “Trestle” came from a type of structure built to pass over obstacles. Like its namesake, the gallery was designed to be a support for artists, providing opportunities for them to show their work, network, and learn from each other.
Trestle Gallery and its satellite location, Trestle Projects, host 15-20 exhibitions each year. Since being established as a non-profit art gallery in 2012, Trestle has showcased the work of over 2000 local and international contemporary artists from over 35 countries. Trestle welcomes over 6,500 visitors annually.
Trestle Gallery is located at 850 3rd Avenue in Brooklyn, NY, (11232) and is open monday, wednesday, friday 1:30 - 6:30pm & by appointment.
