Press release

The John Slade Ely House is pleased to announce the first exhibit of 2012 Exploded Views which runs from Jan. 15 through Feb. 26. Participating artists are Aimée Burg (Web), Geoffrey Detrani (Web), Martha W. Lewis (Web), and Mark Wilson (Web). Exploded Views includes drawing, painting, installation, sculpture, video, and digital printing.

Exploded Views refers to the practice in technical drawing of representing the parts of a whole in exploded or diagrammatic form for the purpose of clarity, instruction, and to make visible the relationship of scale, position, orientation. The artists in Exploded Views utilize this mode of representation to address a variety of issues from the interaction of planning and nature, the aesthetic quality of technical and scientific instrumentation, and as metaphor for insight and understanding.

Exploded Views will be on view through Feb. 26.
