Nancy Van Devender: The Left Coast November 14 to December 19
Opening Saturday, November 14 Atlanta artist Nancy VanDevender presents two views of California culture, the dry, desolate, but hauntingly beautiful desert and the luxuriant and curative spa. Each promises its own allure and revitalizing nature, mirroring the attraction and pull of the counter coast. An installation of two single-channel videos and accompanying photographs, The Left Coast invites the viewer to consider pleasure and its absence, the oasis and the parched landscape, another state and another state of mind.
