On view May 24 – June 6 / Opening Saturday June 1, 2013 6-8PM

“Seeing Through” implies the process by which we see and interpret our visual and psychological worlds. Emily Berger, Nancy Manter and Anne Russinof investigate and construct forms or places that speak to the flux and beauty of our ever-changing environment. Process, mark making and spatial shifts are as integral to the drawings as they are to the paintings. Yet there is a dif¬ferent sense of time and place in the works on paper, as though working on paper turns the dial down, and attention is paid to a more intimate touch and scale. All of the works on paper are presented un¬framed, appearing like windows within a window, and aptly refer to the space they occupy in Soapbox Gallery, which presents art seen through a large window as an installation.
