CUAC UP: Geometric Abstractions, work by Leo Krikorian.|0|AND: Events, presents work by Todd Chilton, a contemporary artist whose painting is related to the geometric abstraction of Krikorian.|1| UPCOMING: Orbital, an exhibit by Jared Clark in which the artist sees an intersection of the worlds of installation, sculpture, drawing, painting and even performance. As each of Clark’s collected objects interacts with the others, they provide a narrative for the whole. AND: Crossing the Continent by Stefan Hagen. From short strolls around ponds and along trails, to epic cross-country tours, his images convey his travels. Hagen is a photographer of grandiose proportions. His exposure times last into perpetuity, sometimes spanning days at a time, and frequently spanning distances of great immensity. AND: Emergence by Dianna Lindquist, a recent graduate of WSU. This series is based on plant and biological forms struggling with the chaos of growth. These might be read as symbolic of human life forms, which also face challenges as people are created.
