Opening Reception: 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., Friday, November 3

Four artists work in diverse ways with the visual lexicon around the genre of landscape. Using materials ranging from ceramics, print, painting, video, and textiles the artworks in this exhibition explore our human relationship to land and how we construct a sense of place.
Exhibit at the Cohen Gallery: Residue
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.
