Point of Contact Gallery presents ‘In Woman Veritas,’ first exhibit of 2007January 18, 2007Tere Paniaguatpaniagu@syr.edu
“In Woman Veritas,” a selection of contemporary photography from the Point of Contact Art Collection, is on exhibit Jan. 19-Feb. 9 at The Point of Contact Gallery, 914 E. Genesee St.
“In Woman Veritas” includes works by Burt Barr, Maureen Connor, Marta Chilindron and Eduardo Costa, Rimma Gerlovina and Valeriy Gerlovin, and Joseph Kugielsky.
A reflection on women, this exhibit gives the viewer a chance to examine different processes by which art is created and to ask questions about the ways in which truth is manifest in women. Seeing the works of art — which were all created for publication in the Point of Contact journal series — in their raw and original forms along with their polished, published forms invites a comparison between reality and what the viewer, and the artist, perceives as reality — or truth. In fact, truth can arise from a process of searching or, conversely, can be expressed in an instant. The exhibit revolves around this idea of truth and perspective, and viewers are encouraged to explore both the artists’ perspectives of truth and their own.
Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Outside of regular gallery hours, guided visits by appointment are welcome. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call (315) 443-2169.
