Nepal: The Mountain Kingdom
Anne Tapler White

February 1 - 24 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 1, 5-9pm

This exhibition details the people and places of the remote Upper Mustang region and the earthquake damaged Kathmandu Valley of Nepal.

The photographs highlight the annual Tiji Festival in Lo Manthang, the capital of Mustang; this festival announces the arrival of spring and celebrates the forces of good over evil. The resilience of the Nepalese people was observed not only in the arid landscape of Mustang; but in the severely damaged buildings of Kathmandu and the surrounding small towns and villages. The rebuilding of the collapsed structures will continue for many years.

All Exits Look The Same

Opening Reception: Thursday, February 1, 5-9pm

Unexpected change and learning to live a different life is something many experience. In 2013 my body decided it wanted a divorce. Although I hoped we could work things out, for a time we were separated. This series is an abstracted visual narrative of my experiences in developing and living with chronic illness. Drawing was a way for me to reflect on the changes in my life over time, and helped me to come to a point of acceptance.

No longer able to draw with traditional materials due to severe sensitivities, I have embraced the digital medium. While the apps I use mimic traditional materials, there is an inherent digital footprint that I embrace, a stair-stepped line, a slight blur of the image. I do not try to obscure these elements, as without this new medium I would not be able to practice art at all. In addition to my own experiences I seek out blogs, books and film. Language and words play an important role in the development of my work.

My life now is both the same and very different. No matter what challenge we face, darkness and light can coexist. In accepting the darkness/fear/anxiety that comes with major change instead of pushing against it, I found I could create something new that is still me.*
