The Muddy Waters Picture Show, Muddy Waters, June 1 - 30, 2007

The first show by local woman-about-town Jillian Anderson summed up over five years of work and drew from her travels across Asia and across the city she lives in. The travel photos of places she's seen and places she's been are on average your picture-postcard rendering of exotic locales with pristine composition and brimming with awe and wonder. It is in Anderson's hometown photos where we begin to see the kernels of an artistic voice: angles and shadows, slightly askew, of city locales familiar only to those who walk these city streets, are by and by, pieces that confront this hum-drum city, mainly within this increasingly-bustling downtown, with an eye that genuinely cannot stop exploring the mundane curiosities of life.
