Gallery II – Studies in Stone, Ice and Memory – Peter Blanchard, Terri Messinides & Steven Ralser
This exhibition considers memories, both static and fluid. Ralser’s photographs show us the beauty and abstraction in ice. Messinides explores the fragility of memory through collage using natural materials. Blanchard exposes patterns in strata of stone.
GALLERY III – Two Selves: Explorations of Personal Experience – Jacob Newman & Ryan J. Robinson
Robinson and Newman both deal with the confusion of everyday life. Robinson’s portraits contemplate the lack of perceived reason behind existence through his rough handling of the figure on the canvas. Newman imagines current social issues in the context of the fictional worlds he creates with his drawings on paper.
