The Lawton Gallery will host an opening reception from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15. The event will feature work by Samuel Davis, Jonathan Dedecker, and Joshua Hunt. Davis is interested in the history of photography as it relates to both truth and also historical constructs. Dedecker creates imagery that that revolves around framing the viewer as if they were a character within the image. He will be painting a special piece directly on the wall of the Lawton Gallery. Hunt is interested in themes involving color theory, contemporary culture, the history of abstraction and screen culture. He will feature both paintings, sculpture and video installations in the gallery. Hunt is originally from Green Bay and now lives in Milwaukee. Lawton Gallery events are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
