2nd Floor: Linda Connor: Gravity
Exhibition dates: January 16 – March 31, 2017
Linda Connor, Tomb Doorway, Petra, Jordan, 1995
This stunning exhibition features Connor’s work that connects to a wide range of subject matter, from the physical to the spiritual. Working with a large format camera, Connor has traveled to Africa, Southeast Asia, Nepal, India, Turkey, Mexico, Tibet, the American Southwest, and Europe in order to capture these spiritual sites. The meditative nature of the exhibition captures light and space but without the construct of linear time or concrete place.

This wide range of resources, united by the unique Cirkut camera, will feature images from daily American community life, industry, wartime, and fantastic views.
