FOUND - Artist Jeremy McKane’s latest ocean conservation exhibit. FOUND aims to promote conversation about ocean cleanup and the important environmental impact that ocean pollution has on humans. McKane found these pieces while photographing Baxter for another project on some of the most secluded beaches on the planet such as Kamilo Beach in Hawaii.
Of Note: A portion of the proceeds from any art purchased will benefit 5 Gyres, a conservation activism group that fights ocean pollution. Level Gallery hopes that guests will join the online conversation with the hashtag #FOUNDatLevel.

An investigation into the notoriously complex, elusive, political and intoxicating industry that is oil, “The Oil and Gas Show” touches on issues of labor, finance, cultural variation and industrial development. The exhibition, which will be on view from Thursday, Jan. 28 through Sunday, Feb. 28 at the newly revamped LEVEL GALLERY, aims to expose the intricacies and complexities of the varying perspectives on the industry. It attempts to illuminate and hold in balance the vilification of the industry due to its harsh and real effects on the environment and the quality of many lives, while also illuminating the necessity of the industry and the ethical, intelligent and efficient practices already in place.
Various artists from around the nation will be involved in the kick-off show, including Brian Wagner (Philadelphia, PA), Jonas Criscoe, Thomas Macker (Jackson, WY), Nikki Moser, Liz Appling (Austin, TX), and Dallas-based artists William Messimer and Blake Boettcher.
Of note: The Oil and Gas Show debuts LEVEL GALLERY’s first exhibition under the new name (formerly WAAS Gallery.)
