New exhibitions at the Union Gallery
Two new exhibitions are on view now in the Main Gallery and the Project Room at the Union Gallery.
Shades of Grace, a group exhibition by Kingston- based artists Michael Davidge, Anna Elmberg Wright, DonnaLee Iffla, and other national artists will be on display in the Main Gallery. Outside of religious frameworks, the elusive concept of grace maintains a complex and powerful relationship with human nature and the evolution and understanding of the Self. The artists examine manifestations of grace, expressed through sculpture, video, photography, painting and poetry. In the Project Room, the Union Gallery presents this place of departure by Kingston artist Pat McDermott. Through a series of wax relief paintings, the nature of perception is examined as an index of reality, but also as illusion and a suspension of reality. The works express mundane thoughts and concepts that pertain to loss: a snapshot of a presence that used to be.
The gallery is located on the first floor of the Stauffer Library (corner of Union Street and University Avenue.) Both exhibitions will be on display until Aug. 8. The gallery will be closed from Aug. 10 to Sept. 2.
