Independence Day

Opening reception – October 6th from 6:00 – 10:00

by appointment Until October 16th


Independence Day, a solo show by Joanne Ross, presents an installation of seven life-size photographic prints that obliquely document a gathering of people celebrating the history of American revolutionary action. The technological ability of the camera to document time-based events was intentionally utilized to record these multiple perspectives. Like a silent witness, the camera can chronicle and sometimes capture truths of what might otherwise remain unseen.
