Jeremy Wright
November 3–25, 2018
Ceramicist and sculptor Jeremy Wright explores the concept of identity within the larger conversation of place, ethnicity, and the interplay between the actual and perceived. Wright challenges the viewer to look beyond what s/he immediately perceives and prompts the viewer to find a more subtle, yet important subtext to the overall conversation.

Pamela Crockett: Dance of Decay
November 3–December 31, 2018
Painter Pamela Crockett’s work resonates with her fears and hopes in response to climate change, socio-political, and geographic-global movements by using decomposing pods, dried bulbs, and decaying fragments to inform this series. These delicate remains of life reflect both the fragility and the vitality of the earth. Their patterns of decay echo the invisible forces controlling their movement. For Crocket, even decaying life is active; she believes dead nature lives; therefore, the quiet objects speak.
