Accumulate: A mass of

Molly Williams

Monday, August 25 - Friday, September 5

This body of work enabled me to develop my own cultural understanding and voice in clay as I became inspired by Ancient Sepik pottery as well as modern works from Matta Ortiz, Mexico. The cumulation of pattern and surface in my work represent the formulation of identity through the influence of a variety of cultures, which may not belong to oneself by traditional standards.

Disabled Creatures

Talia Bowman-Bekemeyer

Monday, September 22 – Friday, October 3

The artworks represent the emotional view from individual’s first encounter with adults with disabilities out of subject perspective. Caring for the handicaps with high rates of mental disorders seems challenging from the complexity of two different genetic genes in one appearance. The disability support systems don’t matter to first encounters, when their behavior stands out as disabled creatures.

Cultural, Ink, and Grid

Eriberto Biera

Monday, November 3 - Friday, November 14

Grids are conceptually perfect in art. Culture is an ever evolving list of values. When grids have been applied to culture, there has been a failure of application. These works are a visual presentation of those clashes between grid and culture.
