Baby Blue Gallery is excited to announce In the Open, an exhibition of work by Chase Barney and Dylan Hurwitz. Both artists craft images of queers spaces that mix fact and fantasy. The settings range from Brooklyn parks, the Wasatch Mountain range, and surreal Vegas inspired scenes. Out of these images emerge narratives that celebrate queer joy, love, and intimacy. However, the works do not ignore the risks of vulnerability and the threats to these places; a rapid HIV test or a strange pickup truck on the horizon. Through ceramic and painting, Barney and Hurwitz encapsulate a longing for the ideal, be it a queer community or human connection.
