Gallery to Hold Exhibition by Art & Art History Professor

St. Lawrence University’s Richard F. Brush Art Gallery will hold a solo exhibition by Assistant Professor of Art and Art History Sarah Knobel starting on March 5. There will be an artist’s gallery discussion beginning at 4:30 on Monday, March 12 in the gallery. The event is free and open to the public, and a reception will follow.

Knobel is a photographer and video artist whose work has been exhibited across the United States in Kansas City, Miami, Portland, Seattle, and Washington, D.C., as well as in Belgium, Germany, and Greece. She holds an MFA in photography from the Design Architecture Art and Planning (DAAP) program at the University of Cincinnati and a BFA in studio art from Texas State University. She is currently an assistant professor of art at St. Lawrence University.

Regarding her exhibitions, Knobel writes: “Coming from a place of uncertainty, division, and flux, the photographs and video artworks in the exhibition explore the pause, the connective moments that take place within the motion of any mechanism. In this liminal state, the familiar becomes subtly unfamiliar or inexplicable, as I explore what is real versus imagined, artificial versus natural, and beautiful versus grotesque.”

“Experimenting with scale, time, detail, blur, reflection, color, and overlay is a large part of my current discourse. In a world of hyper-documentation, where facts can be distorted and truths easily misconstrued, I use photography to show how time creates variables that skew perception. Recoil offers playful enquiries into the mystery of the ordinary.”

The exhibition will run through April 14.

Located in Griffiths Arts Center, the Brush Art Gallery is free and open to the public Monday through Thursdays noon to 8 p.m., and Fridays and Saturdays noon to 5 p.m.
