Rag and Bone: Of Loss and Desire
5 Continents
Featuring work by: Meg Dreyer

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 1, to Mon, Oct 31 2011

In 2008 I discovered an abandoned homestead in Maine.

When I (finally) climbed in a window to investigate the interior of the house, I was haunted and transfixed by the immediacy of the human lives, long vanished, that had unfolded there. It was as if the people who lived there had just stepped away, their abandoned possessions witness to a rich domestic life I recognized and understood but would never know the particulars of. Who had lived here? Why did they leave? And who had squatted in their wake, adding layers to the detritus of vanished lives? In the end it seemed not to matter. A sense of fragility and loss pervaded the place, the anonymity of human passage through the world a solitary truth that even the comforts of home could not dispel.

Comprising images marking passage, fragility and impending loss, this work grows out of classic themes of vanitas and memento mori long explored in art.

The Dog Park Photographs
The Studio of Meg Dreyer
Featuring work by: Meg Dreyer

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 20, to Sun, Nov 6 2011

The concept of any dog park begins as a meeting ground where people come together to socialize and exercise their dogs. In their attentions to their animals, dog owners themselves are socialized and shaped in turn. These images of people and their dogs reflect the often fierce connection that is formed between humans and animals, offering visual narratives of relationships and a collective portrait of a community.
