Reception: Thursday, June 9 from 7pm to 9pm


Award winning artist Jonathan Zuck presents River Totems, a collection of approximately fourteen photographs.

These abstract landscapes call out for anthropomorphic interpretation. Think cloud formations but less ethereal. Materials are earthen, intensely weighty, more grounded in the past. Totems are creations of man to worship nature and align ourselves with creatures and gods of speed, strength, vision and wisdom. If nature herself created totems, they could be seen as reminders of our purest instincts and a simplicity long forgotten but not yet lost. Slow your pace, pocket the iPod and look closely as you walk along a river bank and you’ll see we are surrounded by faces, carved from land and water.
