Opening Reception April 9th, 2016 | 7-10 pm

Sheryl Anaya
Kalee Appleton

Justin Strickland

Content Drought
A meditation on our tendency to repackage old content as new experiences to feed our ever-growing need to consume media.

Kate Colin

Spontaneous Symmetry
Spontaneous Symmetry is a group of paintings that suggest a twisted theory of everything, where a fragmented space exists in various states of activity. Disparate layers of media expose paint washes, graphite drawing, and soft brushwork. Each painting integrates an underlying axis of symmetry while subsequent layers of contrasting shape and color negate the initial simplification. This process-driven work seeks unification of oppositional elements.

Sheryl Anaya

Double/Standard
Double/Standard is an exhibition of photographs and site specific fiber installation.

Kalee Appleton

Surrounds
Surrounds: Viewers of photographs, particularly in today’s digital era, approach photographs with an air of skepticism. One of the most prevalent photographic techniques in the aid of this deceptive practice is the photographic backdrop, popular among pedestrian photography studios for decades. The photographs of idealized landscapes and utopian worlds become objects of transportation, portraying the subject in a halfheartedly illusionary light. These objects, used overtime begin to gain history of their own, due to mass production and repetitive use. Surrounds examines this history and transforms the photographic backdrop into something that it was never meant to be, a subject. By incorporating hints of photographic studio equipment and digital aesthetic fads, like repetitive gridded imagery on computer desktops, digital editing tools, nostalgia aids in creating a new history for the backdrop.

GRLPWR
GRLPWR is a group exhibition focusing on contemporary feminism, girlhood, and the impact of the 1990s Girl Power movement.  The works consider empowerment, but also kitsch femininity, and the overlap of the two.  Curated by Rachel Livedalen, the show includes the work of Jenny Harp, Gabrielle Roth, Hayley Fowler, Ashley Heber, and Breanne Trammell.

Making Marks
Making Marks: the rhetoric of design and design of writing is an attempt to reframe the discussion about writing, design, and imagination as it relates to our impulse to narrate experiences and ideas. It is a collection of images, texts, and processes curated by Michael Schueth and Jennifer Seibert as a collection of different artists, designers, authors, and makers investigating how image and text collide.
