Oculus: Of A Place Unseen

November 22, 2019 - February 2, 2020

Oculus: Of A Place Unseen
On View November 22, 2019 – February 2, 2020
McGuireWoods Gallery, Building W-16
Exhibition Reception: December 14, 6 – 8 p.m.

Workhouse Arts Center is pleased to present the interactive exhibit Oculus: Of A Place Unseen featuring works of artists Elaine Buss, Edgar Endress, Michelle Repiso and Steve Wanna. The use of the word ‘oculus,’ most known as an eye-like form in architecture, gestures towards the enlightening narratives discovered throughout the show. Each referencing feelings of solitude and contemplation, the storylines range from institutional boundaries to societal oversights and mantra meditations. Some works are as light as silk, some as heavy as stone, but the overall space is quiet — both literally and figuratively. Oculus: Of A Place Unseen encourages visitors to listen, connect and reconnect.
