Jane Dennis and Harry Littell.
Our August 2020 exhibition featured new work by multi-media artist Jane Dennis and photographer Harry Littell. Dennis’s sculptures and paintings explore her concerns about people, politics, and the environment. Littell’s photographs look at the beauty and sadness of upstate New York through the lens of the built environment. The show ran from August 6–30.
Looking at the photographs now, in light of the 2020 pandemic, it appears that I was in a social distancing mindset well before Covid-19 arrived. There are solitary figures in many photos. There is also a contrast between places bustling with new construction and economic activity, and places that are suffering and struggling to hold on.
