Susanne Slavick: R&R (…&R)
Gallery Artist Talk: Friday, January 8, 5:30 pm
Opening Reception: Friday, January 8, 6-8 pm

Pittsburgh-based Susanne Slavick has created a dialogue of “restoration” in her over-painted photographs depicting the destruction in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Lebanon. By alluding to historical, mythological, and ornamental details in the added painting, she invites us to think differently about the area’s past, present, and future and just possibly begin the healing process.

John Allan Faier: Queen of Heaven
Opening Reception: Friday, January 8, 6-8 pm
Gallery Artist Talk: Thursday, February 18, 12:15 pm

Chicago-based photographer John Allan Faier’s large format digital color photographs of mausoleums and their lobbies suggest a paradox in their lush treatment of this somewhat culturally taboo subject. The formal qualities of the photographs and the architectural spaces represented are evocative and at times provocative in their incongruity with the subject matter.
