Pretty / Tough Art Exhibit

Jan. 21–Mar. 5 • M–TH, 9 a.m.–4:30 p.m. • Lee Gallery
Artist Talks & Reception: TH, Jan. 30, 5:30–7:30 p.m.

In the current milieu of technological advance, information is distributed at an incessant pace and purposefully calculated for swift and continued re-consumption. “Pretty / Tough” examines the ways in which artists look beyond the facade to explore the by-products and effects of a globally connected world. Works in the exhibit investigate the seemingly conventional roles of nature, culture and the built environment but peer in from the edges defining alternative narratives to the arcane conditions of domestic, digital, economic and environmental histories.

Participating Artists include: Michael Ashkin, Cynthnia Camlin, Julie Dermansky, Joelle Dietrick, Diane Fox, Stacy Isenbarger, Lori Larusso, and Michael Marks
