  • Laura Stack and Valerie Jenkins at Rosalux Gallery




    “Sticky Ridges and other perils of silent senses” two-person exhibition featuring drawings, paintings, and photographs by Laura Stack and Valerie Jenkins at Rosalux Gallery 


    "Both artists share an interest in exploring spatial perception through the simultaneity of flatness and depth, and the illusion of movement that can be suggested within still images. Laura Stack creates a fluid spatial world into which the viewer projects themselves into another world, a bodily or chemical world – a world with its own rules and physics. Val Jenkins’ makes work that she describes as projecting into the space of the viewer, so there is a moment of recognition between materiality and illusion." 


    Opening Reception: March 7, 7-10 PM Saturday, March 7th, 7-10pm
    Exhibition runs through March 29
    Rosalux Gallery Hours: Sat & Sun 12-4

  • Miranda Brandon at Bell Museum


    Miranda Brandon exhibiting her work at Bell Museum of Natural History through April 19

    The work MFA alum Miranda Brandon ('14) performed as a BirdSafe volunteer inspired her to create the body of work on view in Impact: Birds in the Human-Built World. Aptly named, Brandon's gorgeously high resolution images of birds at or just after the fatal moment of impact with a building visually stun the viewer into reflecting upon issues faced by birds moving through built spaces. (Paraphrased from the exhibition website. For more information about the exhibition, click here).
