From April 14 through May 12, 2000, the Pyramid Arts
Center will present Illuminations, an MFA Thesis Exhibition
by Visual Studies Workshop graduate student Diann Manning.
This is Pyramid's first satellite exhibition since closing
up shop at the Village Gate Square and it will take
place at the Arts & Cultural Council for Greater
Rochester at 277 N. Goodman Street (hours: 9-5PM Monday-Friday).
There will be a reception on Monday April 17, 2000 from
4-6 PM. This event is free and open to the public.
Illuminations is a series of almost abstract black &
white photographic prints exploring nature as a metaphor
for the internal landscape of thought, feeling, and
emotion. Through the study of light and darkness the
images initially appear abstract before they appear
representational. In that split second, before recognition,
the images evoke a moment of connection on an emotional,
intuitive level. Where the visible speaks of the invisible,
where the landscape conveys or illuminates a sense of
mystery, fear, promise, and excitement.
