Current Exhibitions (on campus and downtown)
Osmyn Oree: I’m Still Black
January 17 – March 14, 2020, 1st Floor, Marketview Arts
Lancaster-based Osmyn Oree’s photography focuses primarily on conceptual portraiture and figurative studies. This series explores his identity as a young Black man and how that identity is shaped by others’ definitions of Blackness, with the hope of discovering what it means to be African-American today.
Deborah Dancy: Collision
January 17 – March 14, 2020, 3rd Floor, Marketview Arts
In Deborah Dancy’s work there is an undercurrent of nuance and tension, as if something is poised to happen. Paintings and drawings are constructed by tangential linear demarcations and erasures; abutting shapes and colors are inserted to provoke and entice, yet disrupt.
James Johnson: The Shallow Habit of Seeing
January 23 – February 27, 2020, York College Galleries
Lecture: January 23, 2020 , 5:30 PM, DeMeester Recital Hall
Combining digital fabrication, woodworking, photography, drawing (often in collaboration with his son) and other media, and informed by considering recent trends in philosophy and economics, Johnson is crafting objects that address basic assumptions about image-making conventions by considering minute details of his practice and materials.
James Johnson was born in Syracuse, New York. His art encompasses installation, sculpture, and photography and makes reference to architecture and issues surrounding representation, economics, and power. He is influenced by Conceptual Art and Minimalism. His studio is in Philadelphia.
