Featured Artist | Bernd Haussmann


When we look at art in a gallery or a museum, we spend at most 15 seconds with one work before we move on to the next one.

If you want to build a relationship with a work you need to be open and present, and you need more time.
The painting that seems the most challenging, irritating, boring, ugly, sweet- -the one you think you already know or the one that seems too far out - is the one you pick.
Sit in front of it and look carefully.
First you will see some paint and stuff on a surface.
Then slowly, with patience, openness, curiosity and presence, you will go beyond.
And the painting you least wanted to talk to will talk to you.
Listen carefully, absorb with all your senses and let the mind create a new experience.

Sunday Selects is a weekly review of the art, artists and culture curated by gallery director and founder Kim Fonder. By providing a connection to newly discovered art and objects as well as sharing enjoyed rituals, Exhibit hopes to expand enjoyment of the creative approach in your everyday life. We find this approach similar to the concept of wabi sabi, a Japanese term referring to the appreciation of the beauty of imperfection, impermanence, and simplicity as the natural state of things in the world.

Artist Spotlight | Patrick Adams


"In the process of creating a painting, there remains, despite the conscious exertion of my will, a thread of the mysterious and seemingly arbitrary. This admission implies there is something that emerges in the image beyond the interaction of intellect and material. It is this discovery, or recognition, of the unanticipated that drives my work and is, in fact, its very essence. This requires, however, that I believe that there is more to painting than the arrangement and manipulation of materials. The finished painting then becomes the manifestation, the incarnation, the evidence of my belief in the power and the inexorable mystery of images."

Wabi Sabi Holiday


Wabi-sabi is a Japanese design philosophy that celebrates the beauty of imperfection and simplicity. The concept emphasizes the natural and raw state of objects, and embraces the idea that things become more beautiful with age. When using wabi-sabi as inspiration for your home, focus on incorporating natural materials like wood, stone, and linen, and favoring muted, earthy tones. Opt for furniture and decor pieces that are imperfect or have a handmade quality, and aim to create a sense of calm and serenity in your space.
