Painter, Shane Guffogg’s curatorial project The Circle of Truth, in the South Gallery, comprises works by Ed Ruscha, Shane Guffogg, Billy Al Bengston, Lita Albuquerque, Jim Morphesis, Charles Arnoldi, Robert Williams, Ruth Weisberg and 41 other artists in a modern, visual take on a common childhood classroom exercise, wherein a secret message was whispered from student to student. The Circle of Truth project opens a dialog regarding the nature of what we consider Truth and the inherent flaws of receiving and retransmitting information.
Amy Kaps collaboration with painter Kaye Freeman physically examines the performative act of applying paint while expanding the painting plane to include the entire East Gallery.
