What
The ASU Herberger Institute School of Art presents Spiritual Homecoming, March 8 – April 15 at the Northlight Gallery on the ASU Tempe campus. The photography exhibition features the work of Ron Bimrose, Bridget Conn, and Toshi Ueshina. Each artist creates works through alternative processes and has a connection to ASU. Bimrose and Ueshina earned MFA degrees in photography from ASU. Conn was the student of ASU photography alumni Michael Marshall while earning her MFA in photography at the University of Georgia. The Northlight Gallery hosts an opening, public reception, Monday, March 8 from 7–9 p.m., and a gallery talk with the artists, Thursday, March 25, 7–9 p.m.

Spiritual Homecoming honors the qualities of exploration and curiosity as evidenced in the artists’ visually diverse work. Bimrose collages photographs with drawings and found images and paints on the surface. He creates pieces that speak to the transitory interconnection between humans and our environments. Conn’s 3-D installations ritualize simple gestures and familiar objects to signify the “magic in the mundane.” Ueshina calls his poetic images of the places and events he encounters in his travels “photographic meditation.”

Each artist’s work expresses a desire for personal definition even as it recognizes the ephemeral state of being and knowing, with certainty, anything about ourselves and the world. To learn more about the exhibition, visit the Northlight Gallery Web site at: http://art.asu.edu/gallery/northlight
