Opening reception: ghosts, darkly - new work by Shona Macdonald

Tuesday, January 18, 2022 4 pm to 6 pm

For two decades, Shona Macdonald's work in drawing and painting has explored the effect the land has on thought and feeling.

Her images are derived from discreet, overlooked aspects of the natural and manmade world and expand beyond the depiction of specific locations. She is drawn to subjects that are common, familiar: the effects of rain in water and the disturbance of inverted reflections; the shroud like appearance of garden row coverings. These modest subjects, when taken out of context, acquire secondary, psychological undercurrents. Over the past five years Macdonald has honed her process to three connected bodies of work, ‘View of Rain,’ ‘Ghosts,’ and ‘Ghosts, Darkly.’

ghosts, darkly will be exhibited in the Memorial Union Gallery January 18 - April 8, 2022. Please join us for the opening reception January 18 from 4-6pm. Free and open to the public Refreshments will be served. Masks required.
