Contributed by Mara Baldwin

First Person, Twice Removed: OPENING RECEPTION
Thursday, March 21, 5.00-7.00 p.m.
Handwerker Gallery
Gannett Center, Ithaca College

The practices of Claire Lesemann, Jessica Warner, and Melissa Zarem negotiate the experience of their environments using abstraction to mediate between real and imagined life. All use observation in their practice but do not render from it dutifully, straying from the fold of realism with phenomenological intention. Iterated from individual perception, but employed with imagination, thought, emotion, intuition, and desire, the works in this exhibition invite a rich and varied discourse and an array of interpretation.
