Lexington Herald Leader writer Kevin Nance previews notBIG(5)

"In art, size matters. The impact of certain works by artists from Michelangelo to Banksy often depends, at least in part, on their being really, really big. It’s hard to imagine Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper,” say, or Picasso’s “Guernica,” as miniatures.

But small has its own charms. Artworks constrained by space limitations — as they are in notBIG(5), the latest installment in a series of juried exhibits of small-scale art at the M.S. Rezny Studio/Gallery in Lexington’s Distillery District ..."

Carleton Wing’s statement on “Sharing Time and Space,” the exhibition currently up at MS Rezny Studio Gallery in Lexington, Kentucky, calls it an “exchange.” As the title also implies, this is something shared. On its surface this is readily apparent: here Wing and Paolo Dal Prá engage in a dialogue even across the gulf between life and death. But the objects also stake out their own positions and their own conversation. The cross between the materials and the bodies of work is also an exchange, one that can even speak apart from the intentions of artist, gallery, or viewer. This is where things become more complicated. Set up together, the works work things out amongst themselves.What's this item about? What makes it interesting?

For the award Rezny chose to study a southern symbol that is very familiar to all of us, the magnolia tree. I am drawn to it because of the simplicity and beauty of the blossom and it’s most interesting and unusual seed pod. I photographed it throughout the spring, summer and fall as the blossom and seed pod developed.What's this item about? What makes it interesting?

‘Aggressively Fragile’ looks at artist’s battle with two bouts of cancer
BY CANDACE CHANEY
Contributing Arts Critic

The walls of MS Rezny Studio and Gallery are lined with the stirring, sometimes otherworldly images of Melissa T. Hall’s conceptual photography. Between each painting are curious wooden boxes with curious objects and textures inside.

Hall calls these her chemo boxes — visual assemblages documenting her experience fighting uterine cancer, the same cancer that killed her mother...
