Evoking Place

20 Jan 2002 - 16 Apr 2002

The works of Lorna Brown, Katherine Knight, Brenda Pelkey, and April Hickox will present the viewer with new and diverse approaches to depictions of place and their relation to identity and memory. Lorna Brown's Measure (1990) consists of photographs, a large text piece, a section of cornice, and a metronome. The text recounts the effects of a mentally disabled woman's pregnancy on the residents of a small town. The woman's condition evokes a myriad of responses that reveal the social fabric of the town and its mores, as well as larger issues related to social constructions of femininity and masculinity.
