May 3 – 27, 2018
Reception: Saturday, May 5, 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Douglas Bosley uses detailed imagery and dynamic lighting to lure viewers into a narrative world of his own construction. His work imagines a future version of earth where the familiar environment has been eclipsed by engineered ecosystems and mechanical creations that have run amok.

“Those Who See Slowly”

Artist’s Reception, Sunday, June 3, 12:00-5:00 pm.
Slideshow Lecture, “Seeing Slow and Fast”
Sunday, June 10, 3:00 pm.
You are invited to see our fast-moving world more slowly, much slower than we usually see it, a world where the objectivity of the camera as a truth-telling machine is called into question but also oddly confirmed because it shows the world as it is, a place where things blur and where truth is often messy, enigmatic, and a revelation.
