June 3 - 24th, 2016

Opening reception: June 3, 5-8p

Sculptor Josh Johnson makes connections between two environments -- one at hand, and the other remembered. Distance Learning offers a sideways glance of Plains landscape and the creation of Mount Rushmore, softening the edges between the physicality of what is materially accessible and the limited view offered by the mind's eye. Drawing upon the rock formations of the South Dakota Badlands and their fabricated proxies dotting Lincoln's Antelope Creek greenway, Johnson carves, fabricates, and joins second-hand materials into lonely vistas alluding to the slippages associated with memory's shaky hold on place.
