Toby Millman: I Witness Palestine
Supermarket. Ramallah, 2008. digital print, 15.5" x 20.5"
I saw Palestinians who were resilient. I saw rural landscapes and urban centers, land that is fertile and flourishing but disconnected through checkpoints and settlements. I visited cities that were closed due to settler violence and harassment and others that were bustling and thriving. Though some of the images I recorded are infused with violence, or allude to a society marred by violence, they show a view that most people in the West do not see. They aim to fill the dangerous gap in people’s mental image of Palestine, distinct from the picture that the mainstream media has shaped.

Seeing Abstractly: Paintings and Works on Paper
The natural world and the way it manifests before me is the initial stimulation for my art.
I find that nature is a great source to use as a metaphor for my spiritual and poetic concerns.
I may start out with a vague concept; for example, looking below and above the
surface of water, the way the energy of line appears in a thicket, or a pattern of light and dark.
However, once I begin to put marks on paper or canvas, I make every attempt
to abandon any preconceived notions as to how the marks will progress. I try to let the work
develop itself. Ideally, the process becomes a pure visual dialog, where I attempt to balance
what appears to be "out there" with my personal emotions and energy.
Brent Fogt Perpetual Change
January 18th - Feb 24th, 2012
Brent Fogt creates drawings of imaginary organic forms that resemble islands, underwater plants or microscopic organisms. Within these forms are waves, explosions and amoeba. Closer still, the drawings contain thousands of tiny marks—usually circles or small lines made with pen or pencil. Brent varies the size and density of these marks to produce patterns and visual textures. Through his slow, deliberate technique, Brent explores drawing's potential to mimic the process of organic growth, resulting in forms that are perpetually changing.
DEREK PARKER - October 26th - Dec. 2nd, 2011
ReMaterial is an exhibition that delves into the forgotten storerooms at Thiel College,
animating obsolete items once locked inside,
and freeing these objects from the confines of their previous functions.
Anne Roecklein's collage and assemblage work on view in Accumulated Possibilities explores the activities and strategies of desire--how we go after what we want, and the resulting struggles between desire and dissatisfaction, attraction and repulsion, wistfulness and floundering.
