"Everyone has a concept of transparency\ ," writes curator Myra Block Kaiser\,\n"from the simplicit y of thin fabric or the porous openings in a\nsculptural work\, to the conc ept that transparency implies the unknown\nor unseen." \; This exhibiti on explores these multiple definitions by\nbringing together a group of art ists who express their understanding of\ntransparency through a variety of mediums. \;

\n

Random House Converter/Tran ce-Former #5 by adam (the late Paul Cotton) functions as a portal where the viewer becomes both subject and object.

\n

\n

\n

With antiquity as a foil for her beaut iful manipulated fabrics\, Marie-Laure Ilie addresses the question of permanency.

\n

Ali Naschke-Mes sing creates lace-like words with laboriously and fragile hand-man ipulated thread.

\n

Susan Taber Avila makes\nphysical the transparent ideas of memory. \; Bold words and manipulated\nGuatemalan photographs overlying tangible blocks of color act as\ntriggers to invisible past experiences.

\n

\n
