Exhibit at the Cohen Gallery: Residue

- Location: Cohen Gallery
(All Day)
Residue: Caroline Hayes Charuk, Terry James Conrad, Ron Lambert, and SV Randall exhibit at the Cohen Gallery

Nov 3- Dec 8, Opening Reception 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., Friday, November 3

The Cohen Gallery presents the work of Caroline Hayes Charuk, Terry James Conrad, Ron Lambert, and SV Randall in “Residue,” opening 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., Friday, November 3.

As humans we leave a trail behind us- a record of our personal histories. Some of these marks are egregious like the oil spills in the oceans, others are poetic like the subtly scuffed paint surrounding a well-used door knob. The artists in this exhibition are using residue as a tool for making their art. By making objects to create stains, mimic stains, or employ stains for creative reflection, these four artists reflect how residue can create a metaphor for life’s experience.
