Wake Forest University’s Babcock Graduate School of Management and the School of Law will display the spring exhibit “The Poetics of Space” at the Worrell Professional Center on the Winston-Salem campus. The exhibit, which is free and open to the public, opened Jan. 15 and runs through May 19.

Six artists are exhibiting work that collectively represents the aesthetic continuum present in still-life and landscape composition. Exhibiting artists include:

  • Jade Doskow, New York City, photography of an economically and emotionally depressed community in Brooklyn that demonstrates the universal aspects of loneliness and tranquility;
  • Anna Cox, Farmville, Va., photography that speaks to the beauty found in everyday life through the re-contextualization of a common daily ritual;
  • Douglas Grace, Winston-Salem, traditional and digital photographic techniques that create landscapes and “found still-life” images;
  • Scott Rook, Portland, Ore., traditional and digital photographic techniques depicting landscapes which catalogue his travels through Europe;
  • Scott Betz, Winston-Salem; oils that incorporate elements of traditional still-life painting and his son’s drawings to invoke the presence of a home where children live; and
  • Stephanie Neely, Charlotte, oil pastels of pastoral landscapes and still-life images that address the transformative role of spirit in everyday life.
