ONCE/AGAIN by Carol Blackwell, Opening Reception, Wednesday, January 13, 7:00 pm, on view through January 28 in the Gallery: This series of mixed media work resulted from deconstructing old paintings, printmaking and collage into fragments; then repeating this process with long-saved fabric and objects. By continuing to shift the torn fragments, mysteriously surprising compositions came to life. Often identified as an 'out-of-the-box' artist, Carol Blackwell’s work has been showed in many venues. She is a faculty member at Danforth Art Museum and the New Art Center.
Invisible No More: Domestic Workers, New Laws and Changing Culture by Mario Quiroz-Servellon, Opening Reception, Wednesday, January 6, 7:00 pm, on view through January 28 in the Main Hall: For Mario Quiroz-Servellon, photography is a tool to connect people and ideas. A photograph is the result of a relationship between photographer and subject, which itself aims to connect with a viewer. At the heart of his work, Mr. Quiroz sees himself as a good listener and a good storyteller. One of the principal quests of his work is to promote the need for comprehensive immigration reform in the U.S. His goal is to become one of the leading photographers of the movement and to document this generation’s struggle for civil rights, much the same as Charles Moore, Danny Lyon or Bruce Davidson did in the 1960s.
