Jenny Hyde and Katie Creyts
Saranac Art Projects is pleased to present the new work of cooperative member artists Katie Creyts and Jenny Hyde. The exhibition opens on September 8th with a free artist reception from 5pm-9pm. The exhibition runs through September 30th. In this exhibition, the artists come together in the space with independently created new work.
Hyde is showing a series of digital prints that feature individual American made rifles. A local gun shop gave her permission to document these guns by scanning them with a photo scanner. This was done onsite in the gun shop. At first, Hyde was only interested in the .22 rifles, as a way of looking at the gun as a household tool, as it is often understood to be in most rural American homes. However, once the process started, all rifles became a point of interest – old shotguns along with newly manufactured models. These images examine cultural identity of Americans in a couple different ways – particularly looking at the romanticized depiction of isolation or “independence”.
This summer Creyts explored the northwest in a series of hikes. These adventures became pilgrimages as she personally explored the theme of hope, both dashed hopes of the past and the ever-twinkly hopefulness of the future. Creyts hiked with a mirror ball and an iPhone camera considering spaces that would respond to the ball in reflection and fragment. The captured images of the ball sidled with camping inspired the sculpture on view entitled “Tabanakkle”. Creyts considers this the shrine at the end of the trek. Also on view are selected images of the mirror ball hikes.
September 8th– September 30th

Our exhibit of Rachel Smith, Juventino Aranda, Lisa Nappa, and Jenny Hyde continues this week.
The theme of lines and movement investigated by these four artists has made our space an interesting place to think about what lines imply and how they are used daily.
This week we are open.
Louise Kodis is in the space Thursday from 2 to 6pm.
Katie Creyts sits the gallery Friday from noon to 4, followed by
Aryn Fields from 4 to 8pm.
Saturday, Kurt Madison and Margo Cassteven sit the gallery from Noon to 8pm.
