New Exhibits

Jessie Wilber Gallery

Matthew Hamon | by Matthew Hamon

The photographs here are from an ongoing project that includes landscapes, portraits, and architectural images of the rural American West, that contemplate the dross cape between industry and wildlands, progress and stasis. I’m interested in the legacy of the myths of the West, and the associated nostalgia, longing and melancholy in tension with the unknowable power of nature and the clumsy legacy of man that seems ongoing.

Jessica, Clearwater River, MT by Matthew Hamon

Lobby Gallery

Barns, Bovine, and Botanicals

by Shari Chandler

My whole world is a series of paintings. Daily, in the beauty around me; trees, clouds, snow, light, color, I am inspired, and already imagining the scene as a painting. I can't view the world any other way, and painting is my way of saying, "this scene, this is how I see it, this is the world I live in.

Mona Lisa Smile by Shari Chandler

Weaver Room Gallery

Flat Lens | by Jennifer Combe

My research and artistic work explore cultural constructs around gender and mothering, ability, and schooling. Drawing from autobiography, I locate the essence of an experience and then distill my understanding of that experience into simplified, often geometric, forms. This process helps deconstruct cultural paradigms that complicate interpretation and meaning—ultimately how we perceive ourselves.

Circus II by Jennifer Combe

Ship Of Fools; A Giant Puppet Odyssey

August 11 & 12 | 6:30 PM | FREE

Random Acts of Silliness hosts the Washington based String and Shadow production of: A Ship of Fools; A Giant Puppet Odyssey

Three mimes set sail from the Port of Styx across the mythical boundary waters connecting the world of the living to the underworld. Aboard a mysteriously sentient ship, they encounter a world of beautiful and strange creatures: hermit crabs carrying houses on their backs, a ghostly humpback whale, and much more. Under layers of colorful fabric and dancing cardboard, Ship of Fools deals with themes of loss and acceptance, depicting a wondrous unknown and speaking to the power of friendship and love. It is brought to life by 3 mimes, 3 musicians, and 6 puppeteers.
