This event has ended.

This group show brings together four artists’ different representations of “place” and with its ambiguously open ended title —”and things”—it asks, what are the “things” that matter here? These works all offer investigations of space, surfaces, depths, vistas in the paintings and marks on their surfaces. They deal with a strange temporality in enigmatic images that summon memory and imagination.

Brigitte Engler’s prints offer traces of life, where voices and symbols caught up in the surface of the works evoke memory and longing. Peggy Cyphers’ paintings transport the viewer into distant imagined landscapes where abstraction slips into narrative and the familiar and the wild co-exist impossibly. Jane Dickson’s pictures open into great melancholy spaces and yet offer a deceptively reassuring familiarity. And Marguerite Van Cook’s images untell stories, inviting the viewer to guess at what lies outside of the pictures and create their own narratives. Hence the title “Places and Things” proposes a world that is visible and invisible.
