Dave Chance: Ode to Patina

USE THIS FRONTdaves photo (2)

Dave Chance sees a photograph as an encounter rather than an illustration. He aims to capture a subject the moment he sees it. “Ode to Patina” is a series of photographs of plaster walls in Italy that reveal a fluid relationship between light, form, material, craft, the effects of time & the patina that develops at the hand of people. Existence is temporal, fleeting & constantly changing. Essence is fixed. “Ode to Patina” is a revelation of the beauty of intersections between existence & essence, permanence & change.
Free & open to the public.  Gallery hrs: 8:30am-5:30pm M-F

Marlowe Emerson: Natural Collective

arboreality_detail2 (2) marlowe 2

“Marlowe Emerson’s use of mixed media and collage allows her to explore and connect with the diverse environment of the Virginia coast.  “Natural Collective” (April 7 – July 27, 2017 at the Transit Gallery) is comprised of works created from scans, photographs and drawings of specimens collected from nature.  Through this body of work, Marlowe hopes to heighten our perception of the interdependent relationship between all elements of nature, including ourselves.

Free & open to the public.  Gallery hrs: 8am-5pm M-F
