Unfortunately, I came late and missed the gallery talk by Marco Zamora. Here he is next to his wall piece.
This installation of piled backpacks dominates the space and is an example of the kind of site specific installations that the Union, with its enormous ceiling height and dramatic architecture, does often and well.
This is from Marco Zamora’s website.
An example of the lovely sculptures, inspired by hurricane Katrina, by Loren Schwerd.
This detail shows Schwerd’s incorporation of human hair into the work. See more at Loren Schwerd’s website.
Schwerd will give a gallery talk at 7 pm on Thursday, Dec. 2.
