January 9 - February 4, 2005
Marilyn Annin
Title: "Materials Figured"
"My work consists of a series of sculptured garments with each acting as a metaphor for a specific attitude or custom of our culture. I focus on garments as portraiture, as commentary, and as satire."

February 6 - 25, 2005
Laurel Lueders
Title: "And Now . . . ?"
Reception: February 10, 5-7 p.m.
Gallery Talk: 5:30 p.m.
"Using video installations and digital photographs, I reflect upon the recent political climate in the United States, both as I have observed in this country and while living abroad. Specifically, I react to a post-9/11 world, where fear, uncertainty, and paranoia pervade; where surveillance, loss of civil liberties, and media cover-up become a cultural norm. I question the reliability of physical evidence, particularly as we enter the unknown territory of a digital age."

February 27 - March 18, 2005
Mayumi O. Takayama
Title: "Fragments of Imagination"
Reception: March 3, 5-7 p.m.
"What we know sets limits on what we actually come to see and experience. In this sense, we cannot see and experience things as they are, but do so only through the interpretive lens that we have come to wear. My paintings in this show play with and trouble the taken-for-granted correspondence between the signifier and the signified, inviting you to the world of infinite signification."

March 20 - April 8, 2005
Mike Wodyn
Title: "Ideas on a Plane - Paintings About Paint"
Reception: April 6, 5-7 p.m.
Gallery Talk: 6 p.m.
"When I begin a painting, it is not my intention to create the illusion of something on the canvas, such as a figure or landscape. Instead, the painting itself is the object, and the colors, textures and shapes created by paint on the canvas are the subject matter. Much like a carpenter who doesn't try to disguise the fact that he works with wood, I am not trying to hide the fact that what I am presenting is paint on canvas."

April 10 - 29, 2005
Student Exhibition
Reception: April 13, 5-7 p.m.
A self-juried exhibition of works in a variety of media by Edgewood College art students. Reception co-sponsored by the Edgewood College Alumni Association.

"Wickedly Delicious!"
