Space Exploration says
Space Exploration, a multidisciplinary, space-themed exhibition showcasing recent works by Nancy Mims, Dan Winters and Lauren Jaben, opens on May 2, 2015 at AgavePrint, and will run through June 12. The opening reception will be held on Saturday, May 2 from 7:00 -10:00 p.m. In addition to previewing the works, guests may gaze at the moon through a telescope, draw planetary trails with a Spirograph, and flip through vintage astronomy books.

Nancy Mims, whose greater body of work explores moments of wonder and transcendence in the mundane, is debuting “Memories of Space (Gravitational Collapse),” an ongoing series of photographs of space imagery found on sidewalks and streets during her daily morning walks. Nancy's work offers contemplation of the paradoxes in our universe: weightlessness and gravity; reality and illusion; the incomprehensible infinity above our heads and the pedestrian plane beneath our feet.

Dan Winters, celebrated for his editorial photography, works on paper and 3-D constructions, is showing original collages as well as archival inkjet prints from his “Cold War” series. He is also exhibiting a spacecraft miniature, a piece he originally created for Richard Linklater’s 2012 show “Up to Speed.”

Lauren Jaben will be showing her meticulously crafted found paper collages. Continuing her exploration of form and text, her current series is inspired by vintage astronomy illustration, the intersection of science and art, and the recent remake of Carl Sagan’s “COSMOS” television series.
