Please join us for the opening reception of Traces by Cameron Zebrun on Thursday, September 8 from 6 – 8 pm. The exhibition is on view September 1 – 30, 2022.
Traces is an invented series of three-dimensional models that explores ideas of geological time and its effects on the land as well as our need as humans to catalog, interrupt, and conquer our environment. This exhibition introduces a series of small models that are based on the rivers and water courses along Minnesota’s North Shore of Lake Superior and the accompanying geological features, including waterfalls, cauldrons, and coastal forests. Traces represents Zebrun’s interest in creating objects of fine craftsmanship and illustrate a preoccupation with presenting landscape subject matter in surprising and non-traditional ways.
