Exhibitions - Fall 2018

Margaret Noble – Resonating Objects
August 21 - September 21, 2018
Second Floor Gallery
Reception: Tuesday, August 21, 4:30-6:00

I create interactive, multi-sensory sculptures and installations layered in sound and gesture. I design these works with recycled objects, raw materials, and circuitry. I use tactile controls to integrate light, electro-acoustic sounds, and field recordings into my projects. This practice enables users to animate objects and to be animated by my sculptures and installations. Through this hybrid medium, my work explores human and material relationships modulated by technology.


Sara Pedigo – Notes for Joan
August 20 - September 28, 2018
First Floor Galleries
Reception: Thursday, September 20, 4:30-6:00

My artistic practice focuses on a search for contentment and pleasure in undramatic everyday surroundings, emanating from a desire to generate gratitude for living. My revelation of life’s fragility has transformed my worldview and manifested in a practice of continually seeking gratification through the act of looking. Light mediates our perception of the world and is highly influential in my life and to each of my artworks. Light is the singular requirement for all life, and is the source of our perceived experience. Light is the arbiter of color, form, space, and ultimately visual memories.


Miya Hannan – Beneath My Feet
October 2 - November 2, 2018
Second Floor Gallery
Reception: Tuesday, October 2, 4:30-6:00

I have seven years of experiences working as a medical professional in Japan. Being a scientist in a country with many superstitions and rituals gave me an unique perspective to understand life and death. Over time, I came to view the world as layers and linkages of human histories.

This show encompasses stories around Japanese cremation urns. Japanese highly respect ancestors’ bone ashes because they believe ancestor worship brings them happiness. Every dead person, in some way, exists around us, as memories, stories, knowledge, and genetic codes, creating layers of rich histories that also enhance people’s lives.
