In the Main Space
The rural vernacular is a complex plurality, a language that is rapidly being altered by suburban encroachment, development, and preservation. The rhythms of forests, plains, hollows, hillsides, and long dirt roads form a basic grammar while a regional rural patois is forged through variations in human interaction with the land. The work exhibited in Rural Vernacular–maps, photographs, drawings, sculptures, and videos–are inspired experiences in rural environments. Concerns of poverty, identity, land usage, isolation, and natural forces share common ground with issues of home, place, routine, labor and leisure. With work by Brad Birchett, Cat Clifford, A. Jacob Galle, Sarah Gamble, Heather Gray, Lydia Moyer, Abby Sadauckas and Jeff Whetstone.
