Stephen Althouse: Relics
Extended through July 14, 2020
After receiving a Fulbright Grant to participate in an artist-in-residency program in Belgium, sculptor and photographer Stephen Althouse began exhibiting his uniquely constructed photographs in museums and galleries internationally. Featuring enormous images captured between 2003 and 2017, this exhibition elevates and transforms antique tools and decorative arts into universal symbols. The monumental scale and spiritualizing compositions of these artworks reference artifacts of the past to illuminate a collective human experience that transcends time.
