Being Here and There
November 22, 2014 – January 11, 2015
Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH)
Opening public reception: Saturday, November 22, 2014, 4 pm

“Being Here and There” features photographic works by twenty-six artists whose imagery derives from their individual and contemplative experience of place. Each artist’s work in the exhibition is distinct in its concept, content, and approach, providing us with an opportunity to view and gain understanding of the significance of the everyday – that which is extraordinary within one’s experience as well as the ordinary and often overlooked. These photographic works developed from each artist’s creative impulse to visually articulate and convey their independent vision of our remarkable Southern California landscape. Clearly evident is their expertise as perceptive observers and visual poets who savor and artfully capture the experience of being present in this place we call home.

The exhibition includes works by Laurie Brown, Stephen Callis, Cristopher Cichocki, scott b davis, Lewis deSoto, John Divola, J. Bennett Fitts, Robbert Flick, Corina Gamma, Alexander Heilner, Steve King, Meg Madison, Tony Maher, Douglas McCulloh, Thomas McGovern, Catherine Opie, Naida Osline, Christopher Russell, Mark Ruwedel, Julie Shafer, Nicolas Shake, Kim Stringfellow, David Taylor, Andrew K. Thompson, Tom Turner, and Amir Zaki and is curated by Sant Khalsa. A catalogue for the exhibition is available from Blurb: http://www.blurb.com/b/5706178-being-here-and-there.
