Does history keep you awake at night? For many of the artists in this exhibition it does.  Twelve contemporary artists express their compelling passion for history in this show featuring Lewis Coburn, Tim Daly, Christy Georg, Nina Katchadourian, Joyce Kosloff, Stacy Renee Morrison, Micheal Oatman, Debra Priestly, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Joshua Reiman, Roger Shimomura, and Gaku Tsutaja. Peter Delman curated this exhibition.

Panel discussion on October 22 will explore the exhibition theme in depth, through artists' presentations by Lewis Colburn, Joyce Kozloff, and Debra Priestly, and introduction by the curator Peter Delman. The art historian, Dr. Dennis Raverty will moderate the discussion.

Reception: Thursday, December 6, 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Visual Arts Gallery

Tapia’s paintings range from the fantastic to the mundane, and stem from existential thoughts about life, creation, and the possibility of mutated life forms. Speaking to contradictions, the images portray incomplete narratives of unfinished avatars and surrogate bodies.
