October 27 - December 8, 2000

The material presented in this exhibition, and the exhibition in the Pollock Gallery is but a very small portion of the artwork Linda Finnell produced during her lifetime of making. Finnell’s creative nature emerged at age ten in the form of complex diaries and stories. Remarkable for their content and form, many of these early works were made public here for the first time.

In addition, posters issued by the National Association of Manufacturers and the Czech resistance were displayed. Pamphlets are official government publications issued through the U.S. Depository program. 


Charles DeBus: New Work


April 27 - September 4, 2000

"These prints are made with alternatie photographic processes using found objects and photographic negatives with the addition of drawing color. Technically, I am attempting to create new realities. Sometimes there is an ambiguity of space or perspective but I am always trying to make feathers float or sway, the moon to shine and plants to glow with life. It is my hope that these images bring to the viewer myths and folk tales asleep in the hearts of all." 

– Charles DeBus
