Littman Gallery presents foreGround
, curated by PORT's own Jeff Jahn. The show addresses the "pervasive but often hidden influence of geology on contemporary life," and features works by Zachary Davis, Arcy Douglass, Jacqueline Ehlis, Jim Neidhardt, Matthew Picton and Ben Young.
"Call it existential geology. The show sidesteps the literal landscape to get at things hidden in plain view. It is a landscape show which explicitly avoids traditional landscape art in order to explore geology's existential, intellectual and spatial impact on our lives."
Opening reception • 5-7pm • November 5
