Art opening: Matthew Ronay: Between the Worlds

Critic's Pick Release Date: 2010-09-22

Now that Artpace’s road-trip through Nostalgia, USA, has made its final pee break, Brooklyn-based artist Matthew Ronay transforms the Hudson (Show)Room with Between the Worlds, “an elaborate installation of organic elements.” In recent years, Ronay’s work has evolved, leaving poppy cartoonism in the dust of perplexing, tribal arrangements. According to Artpace, Ronay’s Between the Worlds “reveals a metaphysical, sacred experience reflected in the shamanistic objects he has assembled.” On the way in or out, be sure to check out Leonardo Drew’s WindowWorks installation (in the gallery’s Main Avenue windows). Third and final in Artpace’s yearlong tribute to past residents, Drew is known for “formally abstract” works, often “made to resemble the detritus of everyday life.” Free, 6-8:30pm, Artpace, 445 N. Main Ave., (210) 212-4900,
