River Relations: A Beholder's Share of the Columbia River Dams

Mixed Media works by Nick Conbere, Assoc. Professor, Emily Carr University, Vancouver, British Columbia, and John C. Holmgren, Assoc. Professor, Franklin & Marshall College, Lancaster, PA

January 26 - February 23, 2017
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 26, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. - Presentation by John C. Holmgren at 7:00 pm

"Using art as a visual and narrative critical tool, our project investigates the presence and impact of hydro-electric dams on the Columbia River. We ask how aesthetic relationships can offer compelling ways to consider human constructions that alter natural forces, re-shaping the flow of a river. Through our collaborative documentation and interpretation, we will aim to explore parallels among various places and histories along the river, suggest patterns and relationships, and facilitate documentary, metaphor, and allegory in considering the presence of the dams."  John C. Holmgren
