David Armstrong: The Burden of the Beholder January 26 – February 11, Coburn Gallery

In an era of Photoshop and digital mash-ups, the casual viewer might be forgiven for thinking that David Armstrong’s surreal images are computer-generated.  Armstrong’s seamless collages are created the old-fashioned way – with scissors, a steady hand, and infinite patience.  The exhibition features images and text from Armstrong’s publication, The Burden of the Beholder, created at the CC Press, and featuring poetry from nineteen nationally-recognized writers. On Wednesday, January 26, 4:30pm Coburn Gallery will host an opening reception featuring a gallery talk by David Armstrong and poetry readings by authors featured in the publication.  The reception is free and open to the public.
