Casey Whittier. Every Corner: A Confessional

August 31 @ 5:00 pm - October 13 @ 9:00 pm

Casey Whittier’s work is informed by her fascination with cast-off objects and quiet spaces: the things stuck in the corner, at the bottom of the pile. Her interest lies in an object’s ability to catalyze a story, to conjure up associations: past, present, future, real, fictional, or in-between.

September 28 @ 5:00 pm - October 20 @ 9:00 pm

“Something has survived,” reads the tagline for the 1997 movie, Jurassic Park: The Lost World. Undeniably, something has survived: Brett Kern’s infatuation with the pop culture of his formative years, during the late eighties and the nineties.
