Point of Contact Gallery Announces Opening of ‘Time Changes Everything’
Point of Contact Gallery is hosting an opening reception for “Time Changes Everything,” an exhibition by Syracuse University Professor Margie Hughto, Darcy Gerbarg, Beth Bischoff and Franco Andres, on Friday, July 12. The reception will take place from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
The reception is free and open to the public. Cash bar and light hors d’oeuvres will be served. Free parking will be available on the night of the reception in the Syracuse University lot on the corner of West and West Fayette streets.
“Time Changes Everything” will be on view through Aug. 9 at the Point of Contact Gallery. Admission is free and open to the public Monday through Friday from noon to 5 p.m. or by appointment.
Each artist in “Time Changes Everything” battles the temporality of human existence and the material world constructed around it.
Bischoff’s photography expresses a harmony of the past and present depicting the ruins left in the world’s progression. Bischoff’s Ruins series functions as a reminder of the care our planet deserves.
Ceramist Margie Hughto draws inspiration from landfills and remains left by humans in the creation of her Excavation Series. Hughto’s work embodies the transience of the human experience in a world heavily structured by transitory material objects.
Bringing together numerous modes of digital art, Gerbarg forms The Syracuse Pictures. Her artwork abstracts the world into its own heterotopia, existing in both the past and present.
Andres realizes the difficulty of authenticity for artists as he utilizes an accumulation of mediums in the formation of one’s identity. The process of his artwork becomes a depiction of time and change as his work spans from ancient processes to contemporary modes of video.
These four distinct artists come together in “Time Changes Everything” to pose a larger challenge to the viewers through the ultimate tool, their artwork.
