Liminal – solo show of photographs by Liz Vance
September 9 – October 4
Opening Reception Friday September 13, 5-7PM

Liz Vance is a visual artist whose work blends photography and cultural studies to capture and convey the smaller moments that define our lives.  Her work has evolved from the strict controls of traditional portraiture to the unexpected experiences of journalism, all the while looking at the stories behind the stories, the expressions between the poses.  

“There is a moment between things happening when there is change.  This liminal moment, where something isn’t one thing or the other, but both.  That’s what I try to capture.” – Liz Vance

Liminal focuses on common spaces and experiencing the transitions between them, capturing the details we pass every day without notice or pause.
