Every week we are launching an exhibition that includes work by a gallery artist, or a thematic show based on our inventory. This week's Spotlight exhibition is "At Home."

For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted a sabbatical... time to read fiction, recharge, and reflect. While I’ve started to take staycations in August, current events have forced an unexpected pause in my otherwise hectic schedule.

As most of the world is sitting at home, I decided to look at work by our gallery artists to see how they portrayed home life. I hope you enjoy our second Spotlight exhibitionAt Home. From the controlled chaos in Julie Blackmon’s images, to the peaceful serenity in Doug Prince’s light boxes and Kate Breakey’s still lifes, to the imaginative worlds portrayed by Robert & Shana ParkeHarrison and Elizabeth Ernst, At Home reminds us of things we may take for granted and yet are most important.
