Shadows of the Invisible
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 11, 6:00-9:00 pm
Artist Talk by Susan kae Grant at 5:00 pm

“The ability of photography to reveal what is invisible to the naked eye has a rich history dating back to the advent of the medium. Often typifying the conflation of science and art characterizing early photography, the pursuit of the invisible by means of light-sensitive emulsions remains a compelling source of fascination for contemporary image-makers and their audience. Within the realm of art, this preoccupation with the unseen manifests itself in remarkable fashions ranging from the poetics of evocation to the dread of the unknown.

Bringing together the intriguing work of seven international photo-based artists, Shadows of the Invisible casts light upon a spectrum of energy fields, emanations, perceptual imaginings, and subconscious imaging rendered tangible by photographic technologies.

The exhibition will be on view October 11 – November 23, 2014.  Featuring: Michael Flomen, David Maisel, Marie-Jeanne Musiol, Susan kae Grant, Shimpei Takeda, Amy Theiss Giese and Chrysanne Stathacos.”

“This exhibition at VERVE is a collection of photographs that dispels the belief that photography offers an accurate rendering of persons, places, things and events–Realism. The images by these three fine art photographers are created, constructed and choreographed by the artist to, at first blush, appear as accurate and objective renderings of what they portray. They summon the viewer to first comprehend them as an accurate rendition, only to then provoke the viewer to see them in a completely different light. Unmistakably aesthetic, this imagery of persons, places, things and events is to be seen and understood as metaphors–to tell a different story or stories, or perhaps a story of a dream–Surrealism…. This exhibition is therefore a theater, an itinerary of animated pictorial elaborations—images of the dream. In each instance, however, the image content is always inviting and the compositions have patterns, structure and narrative. The works are pleasing to the eye.”

Tangibles: Beauty and Purpose in the Art of the Book
On view September 17 – November 16, 2013

“The Northern Arizona University Art Museum presents “Tangibles: Beauty and Purpose in the Art of the Book.” This exhibition is created in the belief that the physical artifact of a book can offer sensory experiences and imaginative encounters that the realm of digital facsimiles and “virtual” art cannot.

The exhibition includes works that go beyond self-expression to engage with political and cultural issues in the contemporary world. The visual arts remain a compelling arena in which to effect criticism, reflection and change in a time of war, economic inequality and environmental destruction, to name only a few of the themes represented in the show. Pieces chosen for the exhibition will employ traditional media of paint, ink, paper, woodcuts, and engravings, but we are equally interested in works that fall outside expected definitions of what a book might look like or how one might experience a book – creatively defined – as an aesthetic object.”

This exhibition was co-juried by David Williams, Professor of Fine Art in Printmaking, School of Art, Northern Arizona University and Susan kae Grant, Professor of Art, Department of Visual Art, Texas Woman’s University.
