Durham by Ghostbike 

When: July 9-Sept. 17 2016



In one of his mixed-media collages, Durham artist Jeremy Kerman shows us a familiar downtown vantage through fresh eyes. Using bright colors, blocky shapes, and skewed perspectives remindful of a child's drawing, Kerman depicts the collision of old and new Durham, as historic brick jumbles with shiny ELF vehicles in front of the Organic Transit building. Lean in close and you'll notice a "Ghost Bike" parking sign, a tribute to a friend of the artist's in particular, and to all the people being erased, literally or figuratively, from Durham in general. "Road Closed Ahead," reads a construction sign; the symbolic question Kerman tacitly asks is "for whom?" Other pointed Durham scenes populate Durham by Ghostbike, Kerman's new show at Craven Allen Gallery, which runs alongside The Colors of Summer, Peg Bachenheimer's exhibit of vibrant encaustic paintings, through Sept. 17. —Brian Howe
