View exhibition page Matrilinear: Elizabeth M. Claffey

Elizabeth M. Claffey’s work is both cross-disciplinary in nature and aimed at starting conversations within the community. She uses visual art as a catalyst for storytelling and to express the knowledge of people often under-recognized within the public sphere. Claffey’s projects examine cultural and social context, engage in community dialogue, and encourage critical inquiry.

View exhibition page UnEqual Scenes: Johnny Miller

UnEqual Scenes uses a drone to illustrate the inscribed history of the world in a new way. The scars within our urban fabric, so apparent from above, can provoke a sense of surprise, at the same time they reveal our complicity in systematic disenfranchisement.

View exhibition page Rain and the River: Jacklyn St. Aubyn

Painter Jacklyn St. Aubyn creates a magical space in which things aren’t what they appear to be. First perceptions may be misleading. She has landscapes and interiors in mind as she works, but not in the realistic sense; rather, she conjures imaginary spaces that defy logic.
