Words Aren't Enough:
Recent Works by Denney Turner

Denney TurnerWords aren't Enough will broadly display the most recent photographic works of Denney Turner. Denney tells stories with her photographs in a way that words are unable to; the photographs are her voice. She uses this as a tool to disconnect herself in order to reconnect with reality. These stories enabled thoughts and feelings to be uncovered at the most vulnerable times, in her life and in the lives of others. She uses her camera as a way to capture her thoughts about herself, strangers, loved ones and distinct places.

Entrusted: Recent Works by Micah Kalagayan

Micah KalagayanEntrusted is a collection of my recent works that altogether display my purpose as an artist. I am ultimately a steward being used to expand and amplify the boundless and endless creativity of the initial Creator. By exploring every existing purpose of created things, I intend to assist each viewer in understanding the intended, true, and overarching purpose of which those things were created—for good, worship, and glorification— by producing works that range between two-dimensional mixed media, print, and installation.
I am especially compelled by declarations, varying definitions, the inanimate, and the patterns and transformations that occur in the world; however, I am also and much more compelled and strengthened by things that cannot be fully beheld, or let alone seen.
The word ‘creating’ refers to bringing about something from absolute nothingness. ‘Making’ refers to the handling of already created things and gives the indication that something was wrought from something else. Therefore, I am not a creator, but a maker. The source of creativity is not from me, but from Him. I have only been entrusted with it.
