A Practice in Permanence explores the importance of human interaction in the work of seven artists using a variety of media. All pieces have a life in the gallery allowing viewers to see and explore the growth, decay, or remnants of each work. The works toil with the question of art’s permanence and the metaphor this evolution embodies.
The exhibit includes works from Christopher Cohoon (painter/mixed media), Christopher Hagen (printmaker and bookmaker), Claudia Husband (printmaker and textile designer), Whitney Johnson (plant materials/mixed media), Kira Santiago (organic flower farmer and floral designer), Melanie Scott-Dockery (mixed media), and Chris Wille(New Technology/mixed media artist).
