When we hear the term “collecting” we often think about money. But, how often do we think about ‘celebrating’ artists? Although there are various ways to acquire work such as purchasing, bartering, trading, and gifting there is still the idea about sharing with others what you love, are passionate about, and supporting the artists. The works in Works on Paper from the Juarez Collection is about having a continuous dialogue after the fact. Each piece of art will have a story as to how the piece exchanged hands from the artist to the collector.

Ignias features new works by Zak Worth. Worth uses pen and ink to draw lines that create multiple layers and depict complex views of dimension. Landscapes, both urban and natural, inspire much of the work he does. The juxtaposition of the busy dimensionality of man-made environments and the flow of organic systems is a point of fascination for him. The rigidity of city lines and the fluidity of nature seem to be in opposition, but Worth enjoys discovering their ties to each other as it unfolds through their complex patterns and sophisticated structures.

Gallery hours are Thursday and Friday, 5-8pm, Saturdays from 11-3pm and by appointment.

Open to the public.
