A Strange Likeness: Perspectives on Contemporary Photographic Portraiture

This exhibition features works by Kelly Kristin Jones, Natalie Krick, and Xia Tio. The images examine the methods and usages of the photographic portrait with each artist’s approach  conceptually varied. The work in this exhibition questions of the validity and honesty of photographic portraiture and its power to shadow, and reveal, a truthful depiction of the subject.

Ranging, a Faculty & Staff Exhibition

August 21 through September 19, 2013

The term Ranging covers a broad spectrum of meanings: Varying. Fluctuating. Shifting. Moving across wide areas.  As well, the term alludes to a wide array of actions:  To arrange, to order, to categorize, to wander, to encompass, to extend, to fluctuate.

The exhibit title is suggestive of:  A series of things in a row; an aggregate of objects in one order; a direction one has taken with work; the limits of a series; the distance or extent between possible extremes.  An activity that includes exploring or wandering over a place or through a concept.
