Sutton Gallery Opening Reception

(10.15) Welcome back to the 159 Sutton gallery who will be reopening this Friday with Floor Plane, a two-person exhibition of recent artwork by lens-based artist Leah Dyjak and sculptor Kelly Goff. This unique carriage house was originally part of the J.B. Barnaby Castle around the corner, and echoes the flamboyant tastes of its owner.*

Leah Dyjak is an interdisciplinary, lens-based artist whose work combines performance, labor, film, and photography to explore how generations of human use affect the ecologies of place.

Kelly Goff is a Curaçaon-American artist with a focus on sculpture, installation, and public projects. His work is driven by place-based research domestically and abroad including work done in Key West, Florida, the Alaskan wilderness, Bhutan, Nepal, the Ecuadorian Amazon, rural Colorado, and in his homeland, the Caribbean island of Curaçao.

This will be the gallery’s first opening reception since February 2020.

This is the first opening for 159 Sutton since February 2020. They ask that you please wear a mask when visiting. Viewings by appointment. Contact: 159sutton@gmail.com.

Art in the Ruins has a detailed description and history of the Barnaby Carriage House.

The tack room, originally simply the area that the tack for the horses and carriages were kept, has floor to ceiling mahogany walls with alternating shades of light and dark mahogany. . . The floor of the tack room is made of porcelain tiles in an intricate, colorful, and fanciful mosaic pattern.

*(One of Barnaby’s daughters got married in the carriage house, so the family recognized how cool the space was even when it still smelled of horses.)

Opening reception, ‘Floor Plane’, 6pm to 9pm, Friday, October 15, 159 Sutton Street, (directions)
