Artists Terrence Campagna (Ann Arbor, MI) and Tom Jones (Madison, WI) are both wanderers. In their many travels, they are also keen observers as they rove through physical and cultural landscapes. Heedful of many details, they document things others may not pay attention to, or even notice.

A significant part of Campagna’s art practice involves long walks through urban and rural environments, usually collecting detritus for use in his quirkily beautiful sculptures. A secondary part involves noticing and documenting reflections in water, often temporary puddles in unexpected places. Campagna notes, “initially it is the puddle itself that awakens me to a unique spot on the surface of the earth. The lively reflections capture my attention.” This exhibit brings together a group of his reflective images and is the first exhibit of these photographs in Wisconsin.

Tom Jones is highly-regarded for his work exploring Ho-Chunk and ‘Indian’ identity and documenting the many, frequently kitsch, ways white culture has appropriated and misused images of Native Americans. This new series, titled Remnants, combines photos of Native American casino carpets with etched images that make historical and political references.
