Damon McCloskey: Cognitive Renovations
Factory Works Gallery September 6 – 26, 2019
Opening Reception September 6 from 6 to 9 pm
Light Refreshments Will Be Served

Factory Works Gallery at the Pajama Factory in Williamsport invites you to Cognitive Renovations, an exhibition of mixed media works by local artist Damon McCloskey. Consisting of a series of colorful, expressionistic works on canvas and paper.

In an artist statement that quotes from sources as varied as Dr. Albert Barnes and Dante Rosetti to Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead, Damon describes his process as, “allow(ing) my intuition to break through the matter of my bodily systems and create expressions of this world which I temporarily inhabit…” and, “…my conscious-self grips hold of something that pulls the substance through the other side to be splashed onto a material object such as paper, canvas, metal, or keyboard.“ In his words, “Regardless of the formula or anti-formula that I choose to follow on any given occasion the fact of the matter is that each mark made is a decision. It is a choice to create and record a specific moment in time.”

We hope you will join us in exploring these expressions of contradiction, and how color, form and spirit inform these very visceral contemporary works. Factory Works Gallery is open, in addition to the reception, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 4 to 6 pm or by appointment by emailing [email protected]

Also on display at the Pajama Factory: The Factory Expansion Program

The Factory Expansion program focuses on site specific works that engage the visitor/viewer beyond the gallery. These temporary installations place art that interact with the common spaces throughout the building. For September’s First Friday Events, the Pajama Factory will open two new installations by Chad Andrews and Ron Lambert.
