Hispanic Heritage Celebration:  Francisca Oviedo

Art Exhibition: Tuesday, September 13, 2022 - Friday, November 4, 2022 
Artist Reception: Thursday, September 29, 2022, 6 - 8 pm

In this exhibition, Francisca Oviedo’s paintings allude to her native country of Chile, where she lived for much of her life. However, being that her work is abstract landscapes and, in some cases, reaching complete abstraction, the viewer can be transported anywhere in the world or from their imagination. Oviedo’s works largely reflect her inner, optimistic and adventurous world, and that gets further influenced by particular situations she is in. 


Hope & Faith: Eleisha Faith and Tonisha Hope McCorkle 

Art Exhibition: Tuesday, November 22, 2022 - Friday, February 3, 2023 
Artist Reception: Sunday, December 18, 2022, 1 - 3 pm 

Twins, Eleisha Faith and Tonisha Hope McCorkle, have been curating, studying, and creating art since they were 13. The two have used their art as a space of healing and creating immersive experiences that engage with loss, grief, and identity. Their work speaks to the candid, yet uncanny truth of black life, while simultaneously severing from a cyclical narrative deeply rooted in pain and disenfranchisement. By deconstructing materials in their practice, the duo reconstructs narratives through veracious and symbolic imagery to communicate stories of black life, food, rituals, healing, and magic.

Chris Combs: Refactoring 

Art Exhibition: Tuesday, May 9, 2023 - Friday, July 14, 2023 
Artist Reception
Thursday, May 18, 2023, 6 - 8 pm  

Chris Combs’ artworks respond to pressing themes of surveillance, artificial intelligence, and algorithmic failure. He employs a wide range of practices to create circuit boards, software, and enclosures for interactive and time-based wood, metal, and found-object sculptures, which both embrace and question technology. Their custom circuitry is engineered by the artist and hand-soldered with millimeter-scale components. Combs’ sculptures address changes in our built technology environment—changes that often occur before we understand their implications. His artwork makes these macro-scale changes tangible, letting us consider them anew.
