be curated by Kathy Rodriguez, the instructor and gallery manger/director. Each
piece placed on display at the show will revolve around the title, bring a
variety of interpretations, such as mindfulness or “being present,” absence,
ephemera, ghosts, the indexical sign and the presence of the art object or
subject matter. The works of art will be made across a variety of media and
The artists that will have works on display are Martin Benson, Karie Cooper, Dana DeNoux, Harper Hair, Tyler P. Haney, Dane Hansen, Ashley Hope, Brent Houzenga, Erika Lehrmann, Holli Nunn, Sarah Oestriecher, Ruth Owens, Paul Richey, Same Stolte and Natalie Woodlock.
