current show


Gary Duehr, Jennifer Liston Munson, David Palmquist

March 12 - April 11, 2015

Reception: Sunday, March 15, 3 - 5pm

MOTION, MEMORY presents the work of three artists whose work is a hybrid of photography combined with painting or printmaking. Although photography's origin is that of freezing motion (and time) as a way of preserving memory, each of these artists explores how photography, when altered or extended, can allow motion to partailly wipe away the memory of a place or event. They all owe a debt to Einstein's notion that time only occurs when change happens; if nothing changes, time does not pass. These three artists try to catch the moment of transition between stillness and action.
