Eunoia is the shortest word in the English language that uses all five vowels. Derived from Greek, Eunoia translates as, “beautiful thinking”, and is the rarely used medical term to describe the mental state of a well mind. The artist’s work revolves around the idea of a romantic relationship, specifically the honeymoon phase, with portraits that create and emulate an enchanting aura that captivates the viewer into coming closer.

The Keepers of Light

Thien Doan, Haydee Mendez, Mariah Drussel, Mikayla Bastin & Sadie Suenran

Monday, August 29-Friday, September 9

By combining historical analog photography processes with the current digital technology, we are creating a collection of contemporary works to provoke a sense of nostalgia. Although primarily forgotten, these processes are some of the earliest means of creating a photograph. Using processes including cyanotypes, tintypes, chlorophyll prints and others, we bring light to lost photographic techniques and capture the beauty of the process.

Unhinged can be defined as mentally unsettled, disordered, or distraught. These feelings can often occur after a traumatic event and can greatly influence everyday life in a variety of ways.
This series is based off the emotional and physical struggle of trying to regain a sense normalcy after suffering a brain injury. The work offers a personal look into the thoughts and processes of the artist trying to regain a sense of equilibrium.

The Soul of the Circars

Jai Kishan Chadalawada

Monday, October 10-Friday, October 21

This photo collection is an endeavor to capture the mundane, but beautiful lives of the fisherman that live by the Bay of Bengal in the erstwhile Northern Circars. None of the people in these photos are looking to be noticed or appreciated; they are just out to fish. The artist had a rare opportunity to record these moments during visits to his childhood homeland, Bhimavaram, India, which is a mere thirty kilometers from where these photographs were taken. Albeit foreign, the ethos of the Circars can be felt and understood by anyone; these photos convey a common feeling of solitary beauty.
