PANTRY is a collection of works by Nicole Phend that utilize imagery selected from vintage home economics text books, housekeeping magazines and books of etiquette. Phend’s pieces playfully explore the relationship between domesticity and spirituality, transcendence through daily routine.

Adit’s Ode: A Modest Revolt

East Gallery and Project Room


Cherie Buck-Hutchison

A Poetic Walk-through Exhibition merging art installation, objects and video poetry to create an immersive experience for the viewer.

Adit’s Ode: A Modest revolt complicates the traditional narrative by suggesting an additional point of view through the poetic metaphor of Lot’s wife (Adit) as a visitor to today’s contradictory health issues. Buck-Hutchison takes a feminist approach through a revision of the main character’s story, leaving the viewer to draw comparisons and ultimately ask one’s self the question, “what if.”

Stone Soup – Recent Works by Turner G. Davis

East Gallery and Project Room


Turner G. Davis

The exhibition “Stone Soup” is comprised of mostly new images and decorated found objects by Turner G. Davis. The title of the show reflects the diversity of mediums and the underlying themes of existential search for meaning and a yearning and aversion to clarity in the 21st Century. In the original story called “Stone Soup” a soldier convinces his unlikely hosts to contribute to an unlikely recipe. It is only through their (in this case the viewer) contributions that the result becomes, in fact, nourishing and of import. It is the hope of the artist to create an environment of pictures and objects that comprise the first ingredients of a larger collaboration and investigation.


2/20/15 – 3/15/15
