July 28 – September 16, 2023

Incipience by Shelia M. Gray and Ryan Carlson in collaboration with Oli Begley, Steven Warrick, Mars Zeliax, Beth B. Jasper, Elizabeth Bowie, Allisen Learnard is a collaborative art installation that investigates the ideas and emotions around the intertwinement of natural elements, found objects, created materials and physicality. These artists approach this through the basis of opening up, rooting in, rising above, flight, and growth taking into consideration the inception of things and emotions. There exhibit evokes a sense of composed unbalance, familiar surrealism, and curiosity of sentiment.

The exhibit will be in the Jane Sandelin Gallery.
