May 17 @ 5:00 pm - June 22 @ 9:00 pm

I use my queer gaze to examine memory, authenticity, and desire, while I reconfigure and recreate in order to describe departures from traditional understandings and to create new meanings. I use text, found objects, and appropriated materials in an effort to create links between external and internal worlds. I tend to work in…

Nate Ditzler | Domestic Perseverance

June 28 @ 5:00 pm - July 20 @ 9:00 pm

Nate’s work seeks meaning from the seemingly trivial and overlooked moments of everyday life.

Nate is fascinated by the way that combining familiar and surreal aspects can cause a shift in an artwork’s meaning, as well as the way in which the viewer can enter into the work based on their own subjective…

Rachel Trusty | Summer Crush

June 28 @ 5:00 pm - July 20 @ 9:00 pm

Based on anonymous found photographs, the small paintings depict same-sex female couples from different historical time periods. The titles in the series allude to captions normally written on family photographs and ambiguously address the relationship between the two women shown. This is purposeful as historically same-sex relationships are ignored or relabeled by family or friends to…
