Altered Perceptions Exhibition: The Smith-Kelly Gallery at ACO

Just a reminder, I will be showing my new series Altered Perceptions in the Smith-Kelly Gallery at ACO from June 4 thru July 2 and the reception will be on Thursday, June 10 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Also, be sure to check out the work of Gary Holstein in the McQuistion-Matthews Gallery.

Altered Perceptions explores concepts of mystery, perception, and random consciousness while incorporating many visuals observed through my travels. Through the meshing of various environments, eras, imagery, and media I explore the interconnectivity of the world, and I hope the viewer experiences the same admiration for our diverse yet kindred existences.
