Ken Hassell & Ann Pegelow Kaplan
Gallery 406, Arts West
Reception & Artist Talk: Monday, September 8, 2014
While the gaze has long been explored as a mechanism of domination, recent scholarship also considers the act of looking as a disruption of power. The artworks of Hassell and Pegelow Kaplan each explore modern day inequalities and how our attention and perspective as human beings influence our experience. Both artists work in photography and video - Hassell considering environmental and social issues in Appalachia, such as mountain top removal, pollution of drinking water, and black lung; Kaplan following her own autobiographical traces to explore instances of contemporary oppression, including racial segregation, nuclear power, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Continuing an ongoing conversation about power, representation, attention and stillness, and the act of looking.

Berding and Henriquez: Painting
Gallery 406, Arts West
Reception: 12:30 - 1:15 p.m.
Artist Talk: 5 - 6 p.m.
Inspired by the connectivity that John Dewey saw as essential to the aesthetic experience, this exhibition looks to highlight the work and studio process of two artists with different working methodologies, who at the same time, share a commitment to painting as a practice deeply informed by both, the landscape of material culture and the transformation that occurs in the creative process. Thus, along with showcasing new paintings produced over the year leading up to the exhibition, importantly the exhibition will also feature source materials and other archived elements critical to their studio practice.
