Abstract Small

With the proliferation of video recording devices and the variety of ways in which to view video, the video artist's intent can get muddled. The initial experience of watching video meant for a large screen fluctuates greatly from seeing it on YouTube. For the 2nd annual exhibition, the Museum of Pocket Art invites video artist to submit work with the intent of seeing work on a mobile device.

Jan Blythe

Using catalogues, magazines, books, and postcards referencing art, textiles, furniture, interior and industrial design, Jan Blythe’s mixed-media collages fracture and re-combine found images into formal exercises far removed from their original source imagery. This solo exhibition is an extension of Blythe’s broader art practice, which allows materials to combine and transform in her hands as she manipulates them to unexpected ends.
