Opening Saturday, May 1st, from 4PM - 5PM

On view through Saturday, May 22nd

Virtual Opening Reception, Saturday, May 1, 4:00-5:00pm

Jeanette May’s “Tech Vanitas” photographs embrace anxiety over new technology and love for beautifully designed, obsolete machines. Her still lifes suggest 17th Century Dutch vanitas paintings with their air of craft guilds, international trade, and personal wealth. Her carefully disheveled arrangements of familiar devices also allude to product photography and advertising. “Tech Vanitas” examines the present and the past of technology with a sense of wonder and trepidation.
