Rand's statement: I chose the pieces within this show based on instinct and intuition. Something in me resonated with the feeling, emotion, or sense of each work, and I was able to recognize something familiar from my own lived experience in the faces of the individuals portrayed here. Each work references and encapsulates a moment in time, a feeling or state of being, that despite different lives, cultures and histories, is completely human.

7–10pm

Photographer Regina DeLuise is committed to an immersive experience of place. As an artist, she has spent a lifetime leaning towards what is unknown in order to create space for direct experience. Her work is formal in approach and springs from a place of inquiry. Utilizing film and a large format, 8x10 view camera, compels her to move slowly and interpret her surroundings at a pace that is in opposition to our culture’s spinning clock.
