Transitions: A Window On Process
Alison Williams and Glen Scheffer 

Opening Reception: Friday November 3rd

Many viewers of art often ask or are curious about the process that an artist goes through to create an artwork. The artwork in this installation will evolve and change over the course of the exhibition  providing an opportunity for the public to observe the development of the work as well as engage the artist in dialogue. Beginning as multiple large photographs of a garden taken by Scheffer, over the course of the following month, Williams will make adjustments to the photographs using paint to bring them together into a wholly new image. Although the image shall always retain some aspects of the original, Williams’ manipulation shall bring about a slow transformation - on some days the viewer will be able to see Williams painting, on other days the image, although perhaps appearing complete shall remain in a state of transition.
