grayDuck Gallery presents Elizabeth Chiles: "Time Being" opening reception
grayDuck Gallery will present "Time Being," a body of photographs and photographic collages from Elizabeth Chiles, made during the Covid pandemic.
Likely caused by the horrific mistreatment of animals in an unregulated meat market, the pandemic raises questions about the pace of lives and the damage that people do by separating themselves from the rest of nature. These questions inform the making of the work in "Time Being," which embraces rest, recovery, and the fabric of communities during a time when the artist found that tuning in more deeply and caring for the ecosystem right around her, one that includes her family, gardens, creeks, neighbors, animals and herself, offered her a sense of peace and purpose, and a closer view of what a more sustainable future might look like.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through October 3.
