DILUTIONS OF GRANDEUR
VERSA Gallery / 1918 Union Ave., Mercy Junction Justice and Peace Center May 4, 2018 - May 18, 2018
A collaboration featuring Eleanor Epstein and Charlotte Acevedo. The two created an installation containing three columns, resembling telephone poles, made out of logs with layers of pictures of the Chattanooga area stampled onto them. Each column is a different height and positioned off centered so the audience is confronted with them as they enter the gallery.
