92nd ANNUAL solo exhibitions: Daniel W. Coburn: Becoming a Specter Julie Anne Greenberg: Considerable Uncertainty Remains Jacob Koestler: Copy of a Copy are on view through August 4, 2018. This project is an extension of my examination of the family photo album. In “Becoming a Specter” I make images in an effort to describe the anxiety and psychological estrangement one experiences during times of political and social unrest. I think of this project as a form of aesthetic defiance. It is my goal to expand the perimeter of visual ephemera that might be considered for new iterations of the family album. - Daniel W. Coburn Image: Daniel W. Coburn, Untitled, work from “Becoming a Specter”, 2018, Archival pigment prints, 16” x 20”, Edition of 12 http://printcenter.org/100/92nd-solo-shows/

The undular bore formed as rain-cooled air that developed out ahead of a line of showers and thunderstorms (also known as a gust front or outflow boundary) moved off the coast and into stable marine air (because the ocean waters are still very cold).
