Gallery owner, Rod Pulliam, with show guests. Nearby is Hildur's nostalgiac "found" video loop of an American cowboy riding a horse, looping a rope. Or is it lassoo-ing?

Elizabeth Leach Gallery features LED light and acrylic works by Hap Tivey. This facade piece is live with motion video-- mesmerizing a steady flow of people. The Alix Pearlstein video seems reminiscent of an avant garde actor's troupe performing on a lightbox.

Backspace presents installations by artist, James Newell. Cleverly built works that invite you to linger and interact for a while. Curious, crafted, concise with a bit of quirkiness in unexpected places.
