      Ry McCullough & Nick Satinover: small_bars

      The Beverly & Sam Ross Gallery at Christian Brothers University announces an exhibition by Ry McCullough and Nick Satinover, opening on November 8. They will present the collaborative, multi-media “small_bars” in the main gallery. A public reception for the artists will be held on Friday, November 8 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The exhibitions will run through December 16.

      Ry McCullough and Nick Satinover are interdisciplinary artists whose works utilize printmaking processes and formalist strategies. The common components found in their individual practices are the development of contrasting abstract languages, structure versus improvisation, usage of limitations and iteration, and the attempt to translate notions of being and ambivalence through visual work. Both McCullough and Satinover also share the particular scars of having grown up in Southwest Ohio and graduating from its local DIY punk and hardcore scene.

      Within their collaborative practice, they explore the structural authority of their band name moniker, small_bars. This ambiguous name serves as an all-encompassing banner which simultaneously references pixels on a screen, lines of type of a letterpress, halftone processes, and the physical clubs and venues in which their former bands played. As small_bars, McCullough and Satinover are able to generate a collection of collateral materials such as audio recordings, videos, printed ephemera, performative events, and structural arrangements, all of which support and expand the notion of what the moniker suggests. This collaborative effort seeks to use the form of a band-like entity to create a space where the acts of publishing, printing, and performance co-exist.

      McCullough currently teaches art and design at the University of Tampa, and Satinover teaches printmaking at Middle Tennessee State University.
