Love In Hell: Contemporary Artists Reflect on Orpheus and Eurydice
The great archetype for poets, musicians, artists, and lovers in Orpheus, the ancient Greek shaman, singer, and lover. Orpheus sang the world's sorrow and the world's beauty with such singular intensity that forests and beasts followed. He sang the passionate extremity of devotion for his beloved spouse Eurydice and the grief he felt over her death with such art and feeling that the very power of death was defeated. The artists in the exhibition reflect on Orpheus and Eurydice. Exhibition held in the Street Level Gallery space.

Perceptual Figuration: A Collaborative Installation by Sara Northerner & Janet Shapero; Invasive Art by Matuschka
Public Reception at SLAC for "Perceptual Figuration: A Collaborative Installation by Sara Northerner & Janet Shapero" in the Corner Gallery space and "Invasive Art by Matuschka" in the Upstairs Gallery space.
Many contemporary photographers would duplicate images digitally through computer manipulation, which would result in precisely the same image repeated over and over. Instead, each of Misha's photographs is unique, exactly like a drawing or painting. What at first looks like merely repetitious imagery actually contains minuscule variations among similar images which Misha has repositioned. His work is aesthetically challenging because of this extraordinary subtlety and the time and attention required to appreciate it fully. In this sense, Misha's photographs are much like classical music, formally predicated on statement, variation, and repetition. Exhibition held in the Street Level Gallery space.
A free public symposium. Eight internationally-recognized photographers and filmmakers were commissioned to create new work about the emotional and collaborative experience of working with hospices and hospice care. Each immersed themselves, over an extended period of time and in different cities, in the world of the people who know it best: patients, families and health care providers. "Hospice: a Photographic Inquiry" held March 31 - June 10, 2001.
A photographic project examining McCall, Idaho's transformation from a rural mountain community to a resort destination, and the impact these changes have had on the social identity of the arena. The 45th parallel signifies McCall's latitudinal location--halfway between the equator and North Pole--and also serves as a metaphor for a critical juncture in the town's history. Exhibition held in the Street Level Gallery space.
Influenced by the paintings of Northern European artists he saw growing up in Germany, Arnold builds modern-day but age-old narratives about Life and Death and Man versus Nature. Intellectually rich and technically lush, Arnold’s paintings cast a wonderful spell. The viewer must step back from the paintings in order to reveal the image clearly. Exhibition held in the Street Level Gallery space.
A site-specific installation by Victor Kastelic. The unique relationship between the artist and Director Ric Collier is manifested in "Cloudburst," described by the artist as "...an enormous cumulus of imagery--free of filters, schemes, limits and rules that I normally apply to my paintings." This freedom is visible in the multicolored gallery walls; the 200-plus drawings taped to the wall; four large oil paintings and several drawings that were penciled directly on the wall. There sheer number of scenes, people and objects was overwhelming-- a feeling that was only enhanced by the unusual nature of the installation. Exhibition held in the Street Level Gallery space.
