Closing Reception Friday, February 5, 2016, 6-9 pm
“Discernible Effects” explores development and influence of social proclamations in the work of seven contemporary artists. Following the evolution from awareness to execution through photography, print, figurative, collage, textiles and light. In doing so, this exhibition establishes a platform highlighting both cultural diversities and social similarities.
The exhibition includes a photography project 13 years in the making focusing on the women in Cairo, Egypt. Mexican inspired works in Neon light from Los Angeles based artist Daniels Evans. Juxtaposed woodblock prints that explore the human subconscious. Expressionistic figurative pieces from Michele Utley Voigt, recently on view at Art Basel in Miami is also on display. A print series from Denver, Colorado that evaluates the male standards of female beauty and a series of photographs that examines trophy hunting and the objectification of nonhuman animals.
These varied forms of manifestation represent moments of understanding and in essence, the results of examination that typifies the artist’s quest. Through visual mediums, both conceptual and literal, the process behind each artist’s creation finds form.
Artists on Exhibit: Kristina Key, Edith Hillinger, Nevis Granum, Daniel Evans, Michele Utley Voigt, Jenna Lynch and Kimberly Putnam
