The exhibition opens with a reception on Thursday, May 2, from 5:00 to 8:30 p.m. and will be open for First Saturday Evanston, May 4 from noon until 8:30. Roston Freilich and Sills have come together to find what they have in common, despite using very different means in their art making.

Confluence presents Judith Roston Freilich, a mixed media artist, and photographer Casey Sills. Both offer complex perspectives and contemplations on time’s transformations. The exhibition is meant to highlight and question similarities and disparities between their aesthetic sensibilities and explorations.
The camera’s shutter may be a fast and mechanical tool of the mind and eye, while the snail-paced hand of the artist bears a complicated, neurological relationship to the individual’s mind and body. Sills' photographic discoveries of America’s back roads and forgotten places look backwards in time. Roston Freilich implies ongoing transformation and growth. Both artists suggest a subliminal phoenix rising.
