EXHIBITS & PROGRAMS
HAMON ARTS LIBRARY - HAWN GALLERY: Evans Pond - A Long term study of a single place by Deborah Garwood, October 2nd - November 19th
Deborah Garwood is an interdisciplinary artist based in New York. Her work explores the interdependence of nature and culture. Garwood has exhibited sculpture, installation, photography, video, drawing, intaglio prints, and artist’s books in New York and internationally since 1980. In 1997, Garwood initiated a project entitled “Evans Pond: A Long-Term Study of a Single Place.” Bringing a variety of cameras and films to the same site in New Jersey, she has been documenting and interpreting the forest, pond, and an adjacent abandoned orchard for almost 10 years. The archive is a personal reflection on the duration of this forest at the edge of suburbia, and it is also a study of changing photographic tastes and technologies - from early 20th-century box cameras to digital imagery.
