Photography, Jennifer Mineer
September 3, 2021 - November 2, 2021

Jennifer Mineer creates photographs and jewelry inspired by geology.  Her works employ a wide range of materials and have been shown in domestic and international galleries.  Her research investigates the intersection between digital fabrication and traditional handcraft, and she always finds time to dig for rocks.  The exhibition features photographs of unique stones taken with a special lens and lights in an effort to view the mineral filaments that have been frozen in the quartz.  After lifetimes of reaction, the minerals’ movement through the silica is captured and stilled. The stones record the passage of time and are a window into history.
