Doni Silver Simons: Measured Ascent
June 22 - October 18
A chronicler of time, identity, and memory, artist Doni Silver Simons uses myriad materials, including paint, frayed canvases, and video, to mark the moments of our lives with quietude, compulsion, and repetitive variation. Measured Ascent explores the ascension and the sacredness of time.
“Marking time is universal. It is what we all do throughout our lives…some more gracefully than others—but no one leaves an unmarked path.” —Doni Silver Simons, artist
