Lendeck titled, Instances 3. The exhibition is on display October 10 - November 11, 2011 in 171 Cedar Arts Center's
Houghton Gallery. The exhibit reception will take place on Friday, October 14, 5:30 - 7:30 PM. The reception kicks off with
a short artist talk at 5:30 PM. The event is free and open to the public.
Instances 3 is a collaborative
installation of two-dimensional work by Galambos and Lendeck. The exhibit displays work created by the artists individually,
in their respective studios. The work is then interspersed with a collaborative mural painted on site. As a dialogue
is created between their individual work, the artists capture this dialogue in the collaborative mural. In their exhibit
statement, Galambos and Lendeck write, "Ultimately, the gallery space functions as a laboratory for us, where current
finished drawings serve as raw material for new cross-pollinated formulations of narrative concepts and imagery."
"Our work involves drawings developed as narrative constructs.
We are interested in the formulation of narrative as captured and fractured bits of time. With Instances we have developed
an ongoing and organic body of work that deals with narrative imagery in broad and specific terms. It opens an arena for collaboration
and dialogue between our individual interests as artists and the possibilities of interchange between our separate bodies

is a painter and cartoonist. His work explores the experience of memory and the ways in which the brain constructs memory
as a creative act. Lendeck's work is inspired by nature and the universe. With his work, he documents a personal
interpretation of cosmologic structures and interactions. Separately, Galambos and Lendeck's work create strong and
complete individual bodies of work yet when paired together, their work creates a new and dynamic dialogue and cohesive exhibition.

Places was recognized by the Time Magazine website as one of the best comics of 2001. Lendeck holds a M.F.A. in Sculpture
