Beautiful and Obsolete: Obituaries for the Machine Age

New Work by Kay Gregg, October 18 - January 4
 
Painter and printmaker Kay Gregg explores a bygone era of gears and mechanics, replaced by chips and wires. She says, "The era of the movable part is nearly done. Our actions are devoid of mechanical interaction. In the past, the lever, the switch, the button, or the potentiometer provided an extension of our human activities and feedback about where we existed in the process at hand. Our finger pressed a key, a lever slapped a carbon coated ribbon, letters appeared on paper, and an artifact was created."
