October 4-November 2: Shared Spaces, a mixed media installation exhibition by Stephen Wicks. While heading off across America to make these photographs Wicks chose the open road, deliberately avoiding familiar iconic destinations. Instead, he travelled with an eye toward discovering places along the way where the built environment merged with the natural landscape. Although the photographs and video pieces are of places void of people, Wicks views his images as social landscapes. It is precisely the absence of people—along with a sense of their presence, as seen in the marks, changes and artifacts left in the environment—that Wicks finds most fascinating. Opening reception: Friday, October 11, 5-8 p.m. Artist’s talk: Thursday, October 17, 7 p.m.
