Totally Exposed is a photographic exhibition of work by emerging artist Sarah R. Bloom.

Bloom’s work is revealing, challenging, and disarming. As the setting for her nude self-portraiture, Bloom has chosen some of the most dramatic elements of America’s decaying industrial landscape — from abandoned mental asylums and churches to the wasteland of Detroit’s once thriving automobile factories. Her work is raw and often brave. The depth of her images reveals genuine beauty in the aesthetics of decay.

EXHIBITION: BLACK & WHITE The Art of Dana Ingham and Len Cowgill

Artist Reception
Friday, July 22, 2011

Be part of the event: wear black and/or white!

Len Cowgill places his drawings in boxes and bottles and surrounds them with writing and found objects. “My work is about containment. I explore some facet of the human condition in a drawing and box it up or put it in a bottle. I create a stage for the drawings and invite the audience to get close, look at and touch it. It becomes an experience shared, a story that’s been told; perhaps not the story I had in mind.”

Reception: Friday, July 22, 2011
5 to 8 pm
