Photography by Emily Jay
Vestige, a photography exhibit by Emily Jay, will open Oct. 24 in Bluffton University’s Grace Albrecht Gallery, located in the Sauder Visual Arts Center.
Vestige explores how we leave fragments of ourselves in the places we reside, and how those places take root within us. Created over the summer of 2016 while Jay was an artist in residence at Kunstnarhuset Messen, in western Norway, this show examines how we demarcate the past from the present within ourselves, through an envisioning of how that demarcation is mirrored on a landscape.
The exhibit is free and open to the public through Nov. 18. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 1-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. A reception for the artist will be held 1-3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 13.
