Daren Kendall Gives A Sense of Where You Are At Station923

Station923 on East Shore Drive is coming to the end of its third season. “Our schedule is the opposite of that of the rest of the art world,” said curator Wylie Schwartz. “We’re open from May through October and do one show a month.”
The venue was originally a dwelling for a railroad conductor, but Cornell graduate student David Dixon, who was using the space as a studio, began mounting installation-oriented art exhibitions there. After Dixon received his MFA, Schwartz said that a lot of people told that it was be great if someone could continue Dixon’s mission.
“There just isn’t a venue for progressive, innovative are here,” said Schwartz, who just began a Ph.D. program at Binghamton University. “We wanted to provide that. It is a place for artists who want space and feedback.”
Station923 will open a new show with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, September 6 by Daren Kendall, who recentedly finished his MFA at Cornell and is now a teaching associate in sculpture at the university.
Kendall’s installation is called “Station to Barn As Apparatus to Hand.” The goal of his work is to help people pay attention to the space they are in.
