Opening reception: Saturday, Feb. 2 and 3 at 5 p.m.
Cheryl L'Hirondelle, Mike Andrew McLean, Haruko Okano amd Ruth Scheuing in UWHAH (Until We Have a Helicopter).
Integral and common to the artworks in this group exhibition is the seemingly ordinary activity of walking. The title, Andante, draws from this tempo marking to mean - "at a walking pace" - a moderately slow pace that enables us to be attentive to our surroundings, literally and imaginatively. The artists presented in this exhibition explore the theme of walking to examine our surroundings, literally and imaginatively, in a range of media including photography, woven textiles, audio-visual media, sculpture, and installation.
