Last week to connect

This is the last week McColl Center for Visual Art will house "Connectivity," an exhibit curated by Cynthia-Reeves Projects.

With a variety of traditional and unusual media, the pieces in "Connectivity" address interaction and intersection--how and why we connect. Learn more in this Q&A with the curator.

Whether it be John Grade's wood and resin sphere or Janet Echelman's colorful net sculpture, something on view will hold your attention.

The first pieces I saw when entering the repurposed church were created by Beth Ganz. Two large prints of vines hang beside each other, covered with wax paper painted with lines mimicking the vine directions. The black and white print juxtaposes the bright--sometimes neon--paint. I haven't worked out why the pieces resonated so strongly with me, but I have envisioned the wax and paint covering on every framed thing in my home.

Check it out. The show ends Saturday.
