Exhibition: Mon, Jul 22, to Fri, Nov 1 2013

Photographing withdrawn library books is one way to depict time’s relentless push forward and consider the institutions that change or fade as technology evolves. Some of these discarded books were rejected as no longer relevant to current culture, others were battered, and some contain inaccurate information. Libraries are often “weeded” to make room for new materials.

As society completes its move to a digital world, these small acts of personalization and artifacts of aging are harder to find. A handwritten dedication can convey sentiment to those who stumble across the volume long after the book’s original recipient has passed on. Illustrations, charts, even graphics and fonts speak to the values of specific time periods.

While working with these books, my head filled with narratives, not the tales put forth by their authors, but the stories of the book owners. I was struck by a child’s angry “impossible!” scribbled in response to the gift of a ponderous religious tome. What librarian so disliked a Dominick Dunne novel that she pummeled the book with numerous stamps? And how does a family give away grandmother’s golden anniversary gift?

The Big House Gallery / Granite Room
Featuring work by: Alexandra Marrero

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 5, to Fri, Oct 11 2013

We all have experienced loss in our lives: the death of someone important in our lives or even the rupture of a meaningful relationship; the kind of loss that shakes us to the core and challenges the way we perceive ourselves and interact with the world.

When we are challenged by loss, we go through an emotional state in which everything we know stops making sense. Then, slowly and painfully, we start to understand that we will never be the same again.

ETHEREALITY is a surreal visual metaphor for the emotional space that envelops us when we experience such loss.

Featuring work by: Forrest Aguar, Leslie Burns, John Murphy

Opening Reception: Fri, Oct 11, 7pm - 10pm

“Trends in art come and go, but the Nude remains a canon of high art, like a shadow we cannot jump away from…”
Mona Kuhn in an interview with Le Journal de Photographie, June, 2013.

Recent graduates Forrest Aguar and John Murphy collaborate with professor Leslie Burns to present Work of Body. The artists manipulate the human body to their unique motives, be they sensual, spiritual, or psychological. The visual dialogue between the content and aesthetic of student and professor is laid bare in this haunting contemplation on the nude.
