Mary Dondero

Small Points in Time

January 16 – May 1, 2016

Ilgenfritz Gallery

Mary Dondero's exhibition, "Small Points in Time," draws inspiration from both natural environment and the artist's individual sense of place. Rather than pin down a simple, observable subject, this exhibition aims to instead capture and abstract the hidden beauty behind the elusive, fleeting feelings and experiences within the "constant state of impermanence in which we live."

Outer Myths

January 16 – May 15, 2016

Wright Gallery

Artist Jason E. Smith finds fascination in the various historical and mythological ideas that permeate civilization, tracing paths of ceremonialism, life and death, fertility, and war across numerous cultures. With references to mysticism, religion, and symbolism, "Outer Myths" reads into the obscure nature of lore, and its ability to create and transform a cultural identity.
