    With works created over the past two years, Jennifer Chernecki's (08) Good Old Boys examines the (female) artist's perception of the male ideal. An ideal that, as the series unfolds, evolves from a more sexual viewpoint to something closer to a fraternal sort of love.

    Sessional faculty member Howard Ursuliak's work will be included in the group exhibition; Space Beyond the Boxes: the Choice of Destiny, at the Shang Dong Contemporary Art Center in Nanjung, China.

This selection of Ursuliak's small color photographs further looks at his interest in the spacing of lived experience within the pictorial frame and a corresponding displaced agency of the photographic image.
