Opening Reception for the exhibition of works by artists Mary Jane Parker and Christopher Deris in the Collins C. Diboll Gallery. This event is free and open to the public. The exhibition will run February 5 through March 17, 2015.

Mary Jane Parker's exhibit is titled "Mementos" and features mixed media work with pairs of pressed plants, lace doilies and natural patterns of lichen with the human form. Plants that resemble lace, images of lichen and mold patterns are layered over faces, bubble from the top of the head or cover a body like a disease. The installation is a lush, yet slightly uneasy collision of patterns, keepsakes, nature and the disquiet of suppressed memories.

Christopher Deris' exhibit is titled "stop thinking so much." The series of drawings are playful constructions that indulge a desire to draw.  Images from newspapers, magazines and various historical books are reinterpreted in ink and gouache. The arbitrary subject matter of each composition is allowed to settle uniquely into their own fortuitous relationships.
