From Moment to Moment

Artworks by Theodora Varnay Jones, Robin Richardson, and  Marta Sanchez Vasquez


date. May 13 thru June 11

opening. May 13. 5 - 8 pm

Civil twilight is the time of day before sunrise or after sunset when the sun is six degrees below the horizon. It is a time when light is increasing or fading and images and objects are difficult to discern. Similar to the shifting visibility at civil twilight, the artists in From Moment to Moment embrace ambiguity, disappearance, and reemergence in their work. Valuing the indeterminate in favor of absolutes, they explore the ephemeral quality of material, the nature of time, and the relationships between object and image. The open-ended nature of these artworks invite us to consider the play of presence and absence and the potentiality of our imagination.  Acknowledging that there is no one truth, their work remains open to interpretation over time.

New York Times Collages and Other Works

by Francesca Pastine

date. May 13 thru June 11

opening. May 13. 5 - 8 pm

Francesca Pastine uses printed media, received images, and

everyday objects as a springboard to consider her inner life

in relation to the world. For her Time Travel Series, she

harvests images of watches, jewelry, and full-page fashion

ads from the New York Times. She disassembles then

reconstructs the 22 x 11 inch pages of the Times into its

original format in order to retain the newspaper’s identity

The finished works lean on a shelf, creating an interplay of

light, shadow, and movement. The flow of time is revealed

in the newspaper's publication dates and the shifting values of its

ink and paper stock.
