Sinful Saints and Saintly Sinners at the Margins of the Americas
March 30 – July 20, 2014
Life at the margins in the Americas - borders both physical and societal - inspires sacred figures who walk the fine line between sinfulness and sanctity. In worship and artistic representation alike, such figures both reflect and impact the experiences of those who regularly struggle with complicated economic, political, legal, geographic, gender, and racial realities.

The Scandalous Art of James Ensor
June 10 – September 7, 2014
In his final decades, James Ensor was an international celebrity showered with official honors in his native Belgium. But in the 1880s and 1890s, the young Ensor was a scandalous and defiant figure. This was a period of great social and political unrest in Belgium, and also of incredible cultural ferment. Bursting with mad creativity sparked by the latest developments in the avant-garde, Ensor freely mined artistic sources both high and low, old and new, familiar and exotic, and oscillated unpredictably between painting, drawing, and printmaking...

Face It: The Photographic Portrait
April 4 - August 11, 2014
Portraiture customarily takes on the aura of fact, as it communicates information about a sitter’s visage. When captured through the mechanical lens of the camera, such likenesses impress us as vivid surrogates for reality. "Face It: The Photographic Portrait" considers the notional world—where ideas are balanced with facts—presented in the close-up. It assumes that there is more to the photographic portrait than meets the eye. In place of seeking a strict reportage of a subject’s features, or outright flattery, "Face It" bids us look for the affective moment, the human interest, and the metaphorical associations inherent in portraits of persons known or anonymous.

Pop Momentum
July 19 - September 5, 2014
Opening Reception: Sat, July 19, 6:30 - 8:30pm.
This exhibition showcases artists working with found images and the variety of constructs they are able to employ to create a new visual framework. In some cases the usage is direct--the artist captures and manipulates an existing image to create it anew through their own interpretation and expression. In others, the image serves more as inspiration, a path to visual representation. In all cases, the final product relies on the idea of the image and the way we observe the everyday, as much as the image itself.
