Latent Adaptations - Opening Reception

Opening Reception from 6 – 9 p.m.

Artist Lecture at 7 p.m.

February 24 – April 6, 2022

“Latent Adaptations” features work by Jim Graham and Leigh Merrill. Graham currently teaches at the University of Arizona, and Merrill teaches at Texas A&M University-Commerce. The exhibition centers around constructed landscapes that reveal connections between environment and culture. Graham’s paintings address topics of sea level rise and adaptation, expanding on the traditions of both landscape and allegorical paintings. Merrill’s photographic digital collages depict a constructed reality of urban spaces that explore the impact of desire, simulation, and perception on contemporary landscape and reveal a culture of perpetual longing.
