Works by contemporary artists, including Steven Pearson, art professor and chair of the art and art history department at McDaniel, and Reni Gower, retired professor in the painting and printmaking department at Virginia Commonwealth University, are showcased in this exhibition curated by Gower. Other artists with works showcased are Virginia artists Jorge Benitez, Jennifer Printz, Tanja Softić, and Joan Elliott. As well as Kristy Deetz and Al Denyer. According to Gower, these artists embrace repetition and ritual as mindful strategies to ascertain meaning. Each artist utilizes complex systems, intricate patterning, repetitive marking or minute detail that provide guides for “making sense” out of the chaos entrenched in contemporary society.
