Opening reception on June 24 from 6-9pm.

Alec Bang & Douglas Tolman, (in)land
Alec Bang and Douglas Tolman explore issues of land-use in the West, whiteness, and seeking how to be responsible visitors in a land colonized by their ancestors. To address these issues, Bang and Tolman intentionally appropriate the visual language of their colonizer ancestors as a response to the socio-ecological problems which followed colonization of the West. The exhibition incorporates sculptural works, maps, and photographic documentation of Bang and Tolman’s creative process.
Rachel Hancey, Impermanence
Rachel Hancey seeks to represent the ephemeral nature of sublime experience. In developing a visual language that can adequately speak to such abstract and transcendental experience, Hancey looks to ethereal phenomena. Her work explores the evanescent qualities of light, time, and atmosphere, for which she has developed a visual language. She’ll be exhibiting a series of screen prints which incorporate atmospheric gradients of color, as well as delicate hand drawn components and distorted photographs.
