Meggan Gould: Traces of Vision
Using photography, Gould exploits, or even subverts, the usual legibility
of the photographic document, by arresting our vision at an ostensibly
superficial level of mutable, mundane surfaces. She captures layers of visual
information that are not the primary
photographic image, but the traces left after viewing the image.
Open Gallery, Reception: Thursday, December 4, 6–8
December 4–January 30

John Nicholas Hutchings: Focused
Hutchings artwork generates a conscious awareness of presence within the viewer––an
awareness of the tension between the objects of perception and the conscious
presence of the viewer. Sculptural forms and site-specific installations both
record gestures and focus the viewer’s engagement with the exhibition space.
