First Friday Reception: ‘Dreamlogic II’ and ‘Trio: Daniel Shaffer, Cleonique Hilsaca, and Duyen Tran’
July 5 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Join us for the opening reception for two new shows: ‘Dreamlogic II,’ a group exhibit of work inspired by the ever-flowing and often bizarre content of dreams; and ‘Trio,’ a three person show featuring Daniel Shaffer, Cleonique Hilsaca, and Duyen Tran.
About Dreamlogic II:
Mysterious images, visions in the dark, surreal narratives… dreams are an ever-flowing source of reflection and inspiration that can range from the absurd and comical to the profound or frightening.
‘Dream Logic’ is the concept that the bizarre content of a dream makes some kind of sense while the dreamer is in the vision, but often breaks down once the dreamer awakens. It can be difficult to explain an experience in a dream because words often fail to encapsulate the feelings and thoughts that seemed clear at the time. The clarity blurs into obscurity, while the images are fleeting and eventually forgotten.

Trio is a group exhibit of three artists – Daniel Shaffer, Cleonique Hilsaca, and Duyen Tran – whose artwork is brought together by a kindred appreciation of style, color, and character-driven narrative. Endearing illustrations belie rich storytelling that reminiscent of animated film and children’s story books. The attentive respect for design, both in draftsmanship and color moods, elevates Trio beyond simple charm, inviting viewers to see contemporary illustration through the lens of fine art.
