[Sin-thuh-sahyz] is the second exhibition of Zoller Gallery’s 2013 calendar and the second SoVA group show for this M.F.A. cohort. This exhibition features the work of artists Dengke Chen, Sidney Church, Christina Erives, Negar Fadaeidehkordi, Katie Hovencamp, Anna Margush, Brooks Oliver, Jesse Rafalko, Sarah Swist, and Danyel Woodring. [Sin-thuh-sahyz] is defined as the combining of the constituent elements of separate material or abstract entities into a single or unified entity. This exhibition is a composite of artists whose work spans from integrating technology, performance, craft and traditional media into a contemporary context. The artists exhibiting are exploring various concepts such as humor, cultural traditions, loss, gender roles and issues in popular culture. Please come and support these artists as they blend together the traditions of contemporary art while exploring innovate concepts that promise to create an interesting dialogue. The Edwin W. Zoller Gallery is a non-profit exhibition space dedicated to the advancement of the visual arts and is free and open to the public Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. during fall and spring semesters.
