The Gandee Gallery
April 8- May 21, 2017
Reception: Saturday, April 8, 6-8 PM
The exhibition features work by Syracuse-area painter Phil Parsons and ceramics by Ted Neal of Muncie, IN. Parsons’s work explores the decay in landscapes as a metaphor of the shifting of values in contemporary rural culture. Neal creates functional ceramic forms which imitate industrial objects in order to comment on consumer culture and it’s impact on the environment. Disappearing World encourages the viewer to meditate on the places we pass by and the objects we use and discard and what these say about the society for which we all are responsible. read more…
