Furtive is a photography-based exhibition that explores the complexity of memory, both personal and collective.

Jackson Patterson, Recollected Memories
Gallery 19, Chicago
July 6 - August 4, 2018
Jackson Patterson’s montages address the annihilation of space and time through the advent of photography in the mid-nineteenth century, and how it transformed American life. His exploration of the westward migration is focused on images he has taken of timeless landscapes merged with old family photos, and the personal history that lies within.
Catalog pdf, with an essay by Frank Vodvarka
This exhibition of new work by Chicago artist Patricia Hernes explores wonder as part of artistic discourse. Her drawings are an invitation to consider the intellectual dialog that exists between objects; both real and imagined. By juxtaposing disparate forms to create artificial curiosities, both naturalia and artificialia, which defy taxonomies, typologies and classification, new mysterious artifacts exist side by side as objects of amazement. Because they do not fit into existing categories, these wonders are perfect objects for making us rethink our world.
