The St. Lawrence University Richard F. Brush Art Gallery will present two exhibitions showcasing artwork beginning Wednesday, Jan. 19, through Saturday, Feb. 26.
The exhibitions are open to the public and any visitors inside the art gallery are required to wear a mask. For up-to-date St. Lawrence masking policies and guidelines, please visit the Always Forward website.
Associate Professor of Art and Art History Sarah Knobel has selected images that navigate between the realms of portraiture and still life. As a result, the works selected span the many spaces between animate and inanimate, and in many images these worlds collide.
This exhibition features photographs from the Gallery’s collection, national and international photographers, and St. Lawrence University students and alumni. In pairing newer photographs with works from the collection, Knobel inspires viewers to see the interactions and interruptions between these images and explore how their work relates to the history of photography.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Knobel will give a gallery talk on Monday, February 7, at 4:45 p.m. at the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery. The event is open to the public and any visitors inside the art gallery are required to wear a mask.
