New Paltz, NY
Intimately Unfamiliar, an exhibition of new work by the fulltime art faculty of the State University of New York at New Paltz, presents a wide-range of projects in many mediums, utilizing a myriad of technologies, on many subjects. The breadth of this show, which presents work by over 20 artists, would suggest little likelihood of a common thread. But on close inspection, one discovers that the work in this exhibition is connected by a tension that exists between recognizable objects, situations, places, and spaces that we encounter every day and the startling degree to which the ordinary is complicated, fascinating, possibly misleading, and most likely unknowable.
