Thurs Mar28 CohenGalllery SanKaur CloudsThe Cohen Gallery presentsFalling from Great Heights,” a group exhibition featuring photographic works by Siri Kaur, John Knuth, and Heather Rasmussen.

Each artist’s work transcends the materials used to dislocate the viewer by means of manipulation, scale, and movement. All of them engage with the sublime, the beauty and fear of the spectacle of nature and the unknown. This poetic leitmotif draws their work together, however each artist manifests this in different ways.
