Karri Jamison is the 2015 Wilson Center Hidden River Art Festival Best in Show award winner. Her current series of paintings feature the birds and woodlands of the Midwest. When asked why she chose to paint nature Karri responds, “Nature is a constant inspiration to me. I’m fascinated how everything in nature is so complex and yet simple at the same time."
Nirmal Raja & Leslie Vansen • Accumulation
March 12 – May 6, 2017
Accumulation is a mixed media exhibition featuring current and recent works by Nirmal Raja and Leslie Vansen. This show has evolved from their shared interest in accumulation and complexity, and investigates their understanding of the present moment. Themes of figurative presence in space, perspective shifts, layered and simultaneous experiences, and dualities are explored using repetition, accumulation, scale, and medium manipulations.
May 14 – July 8, 2017
Michael Ware focuses on the transformations that occur in the natural world. Primarily concentrating on the geologic transformations that shape the landscape; tremendous forces full of movement, energy, and life. Rather than an actual depiction of the natural world, Michael’s sculptures suggest the essence of the natural world. They appear to be evolving, moving, growing, and impermanent, just like the landscapes from which they emerged.

(September 11 – November 5, 2016)
In Home Reports, Michael Borowski digitally collages material from recent data reports, published by IKEA, on household rituals across eight global cities. The resulting digital images disrupt ideal representations of home in advertising, abstracting the photographic space with strips of color and pattern, and highlighting poignant gestures.
