    Searching for Home

    A PROJECT OF THE MARGARET VIRGINIA PHILIP ENDOWMENT Gallery Hours:The gallery is currently open for in person visits by appointment only Monday, Wednesday, Friday 12-5pm. Reserve your ticket here. We have all searched for home. Some have found it, while for others it is a lifelong quest.

As the pendulum swings, some search for an ideal PLACE; others yearn for psychic or spiritual…

  • The Possibility of Framing Infinity

    The Possibility of Framing Infinity on view spring 2008 curated by Lisa Alembik. “Painting as a noun takes on limitless form and attitude. It can arouse visual pleasure, support a manifesto, tell a story and speak of ideas. It is carved out of history. As a verb, painting is a suggestive practice that unfolds and is often self-reflexive. It is about color and shape and the senses extraordinaire. A rich process of exploration can take place through the goop of the medium, the blending of pigments and energetic eye movement. In action, the painter’s scope of vision will enclose the picture plane like a web—or like the hot pinball machine…

  • looking/longing

We absorb our surroundings by reading clues of light bouncing off objects, our subconscious quietly processing the scope of our vision. When a person, landscape or object is immortalized through a photographic process, we may be enticed to look. We could be attracted just to know why the subject is significant to the photographer.
