Victoria Sambunaris: Taxonomy of a Landscape

Visual Arts
August 27 – December 17
Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery

This exhibition presents photographs made over the span of more than a decade by Sambunaris as she traversed the United States, stopping to photograph phenomena ubiquitous and familiar to particular regions but anomalous to the ordinary eye. Acting as both document and metaphor for the American experience, Sambunaris’s photographs bring into view the vast, open-ended mystery and unease of a country where human intervention and natural beauty inspire wonder in equal measure.

Tom Scott Untitled, 1950s, oil on canvas, 69" x 69"

Tom Scott, Retrospective

Visual Arts
Thursday, October 9 – Saturday, December 13
Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture

Tom Scott’s career as an artist spanned more than 60 years, from the early 1950s through the first decade of this century. His output is remarkable not only for its temporal span but for its quantity and qualities, amounting to over 3,000 by his death at age 85 in March 2013. It is also remarkable for the particular span of time it covers: a unique time that saw the ascendancy of American art on the world stage for the first time and an extraordinarily fertile period of general artistic invention worldwide that included the creation and maturing of important sub-movements of modernism, and simultaneously the beginning of post modern tendencies in art. Opening reception on Thursday, October 9. (Click heading for full description.)
