We’d like to thank everyone who came out to the opening reception for Our Origins last Thursday!
The event, which included a guided gallery tour from contributing artists Alison Ruttan, Ken Fandell, Alison Carey and Jennifer Ray, had an exceptional turnout, allowing artists, curators, college students and the general public to meet and discuss artistic representations to the age-old question, “Where do we, as humans, come from?”
In case you missed it, here are some photos from the event:
Jennifer Ray discusses the inspiration behind her series, Go Deep into the Woods.
Alison Carey discusses her series, Organic Remains of a Former World with visitors.
After giving a lecture on his video installation, The Most Important Picture Ever, Ken Fandell mingles during the reception.
Jennifer Ray fields questions on her work during the opening reception.
The crowd snacks and socializes, no doubt making plans to meet up at the next MoCP event.
