Three artists, Rodriguez Calero, Kevin Hetzel and Jason Noushin, probe the nature of identity through the medium of collage. By appropriating, fragmenting, layering, and unexpectedly juxtaposing images derived from personal and collective histories, each seeks to question socially imposed narratives and destabilize fixed notions of identity.
Co-curated by Kirsten Pitts and Isabelle Schiavi

GLOW features four abstract artists: Ryan Crotty, Susan Meyer, Linda Kamille Schmidt, and Audrey Stone. These 2D and 3D artworks intersect with themes of color, transparency, process, and materiality. Ambient light plays upon color illuminating artworks that glow, pulsate, and float in space.

Wordplay: Messages in Branches and Bark features the work of two internationally renowned fiber artists, Gyöngy Laky and John McQueen. Both artists use materials found in nature often in combination with unexpected elements to create baskets and other recognizable forms. They each address time-sensitive world issues, often incorporating words and symbols.
