Jennifer Shaw: Flood State
 on view through February 15, 2017

Opening Reception with the Artist: Saturday, December 3, 6–8pm

Flood State, a new series of photogravures by Jennifer Shaw, addresses the precarious act of making a home on vulnerable land. A response to the recent catastrophic flooding in Baton Rouge and central Louisiana, as well as the global trend of rising ocean waters due to climate change, Shaw deftly and delicately imagines a dreamlike floating world that may soon become reality for not only Louisiana, but much of the globe.
