Shaunté Glover has a strong rapport with her subjects. Her photographs feel comfortable and casual, but not careless – her subjects trust her, because she cares deeply for the people and places depicted here. She sees them – drinking, thinking, looking out, looking in, looking back – and is asking you to see them, too. Shaunté Glover has a BFA in photography from ASU, and is a commercial and fine art photographer based in Phoenix, Arizona.

In Encore, Vision Gallery will re-exhibit work by three recent MFA recipients. For the first time, Ryan Eckert’s colorful, manic, still-life collages will be juxtaposed against Parker Barfield’s surrealist desert charcoal drawings and Lisa Zirbel’s photographs and installations that use natural elements to convey the weight of memory.

By directing and guiding a mixture of Sumi ink and water, Sapira Cheuk creates androgynous figures that appear to move weightlessly across a stark white backdrop. For this exhibition, Cheuk is exploring how individuals cope mentally and physically with change or trauma and what remains after. Through her work, she meditatively attempts to control the uncontrollable. While we may never be able to avoid these external forces, we can, like the artist’s hand, control how they leave their mark on the paper of our lives.

For most of his life, Edgar Cardenas has lived in the interstitial space between his two personas—Mexican ethnicity and American nationality – oscillating between the pride of his fluid identity and frustration of being ostracized from one or both cultures. In this series, Los Americanx, Cardenas illuminates other disenfranchised individuals who have also grappled with their identity and struggled to be seen.

Opening Reception: Saturday, November 21, 4 - 6 p.m.
Within the swirl and frenzy of life, there are ephemeral moments that remind us of our inner beauty, our strength, our fragility, earth’s wonder, and the cycle of life and decay. Remnants of debris on a pathway, a faded color on a crumbling wall, a glimpse of light and shape in a darkened space, an unexpected texture, a footprint in sand. Being mindful of these moments and capturing them reminds us of the connections that live eternally beyond us.
