Julia Betts Unsettled Hues, Enduring Structures Monday, March 4 at 6:30 pm Join us for the reception of the exhibition at 5:30 prior to the talk ArtLab Seaboard Depot/Studio Arts Building 941 Front Avenue
Julia Betts creates unique situations whose exact results are ambiguous and disruptive. Her process emerges from degrees of situation whose "moment of truth" is variable. This makes each piece of her work as a whole or a vehicle for possibilities that is achieved through transient and unknowable states. The performative structure of Julia's work is set with guidelines, randomness, and even personal risk.

Johanpeter (Jp) Hol Building Shrines For Shadows Tuesday, April 11, 6 pm ArtLab Seaboard Depot/Studio Arts Building 941 Front Avenue
Hol's first point of departure is an idea, not the material. His work is based on the human paradox: the individual in the group, the forlornness that you can feel even as part of that group, and the loneliness of human existence. Some related overlapping themes are the invisible things, the shadows, that which remains unsaid between members of the group and to outsiders, dystopia, and Disneyfication.
