To make art involves a push: tools on surfaces, hands on materials, minds on ideas. As artists, we push into next steps and unknown territory, and we push against deadlines. We push ourselves to make a thing we haven't seen before, and then bring it forward to be seen by others. Make a thing, make a change, make a decision, make another change; but the clock is ticking and it moves in one direction, so push on, push ahead, find a way to stay in motion. Pushing forward can be exhausting. It can also be exhilarating.

A push can be sustained, a resistance against pressure—whether it comes from our own lives, or from the world with its always-breaking news. It can be explosive: a destructive push opening up potential in a process that has stalled. It can be curious—lifting corners, investigating edges, quietly determined to find something of value. Things can be pushed together to make something better, newer, stranger. Things can be pushed apart to reveal what is hidden. A push, at its simplest, transmits energy.

At the start of a new year, the Associate Members of Kingston Gallery are energized: exploring, discovering, responding, and transmitting. We invite you to join us in Pushing Forward.
