Studio art professor's exhibit opens

January 7, 2010

An exhibition of studio art professor Jeremy Drummond’s work will open Saturday, Jan. 9, 2010, at the Cambridge Galleries in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada.

“Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere” uses photography and video installations to criticize issues such as land development, cultural diversity and—most notably—contemporary suburban environments.

An opening reception will be held at the gallery on Jan. 9, from 2:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Many of Drummond’s pieces depict housing developments as isolated communities cut off from their surroundings. “65-Point Plan for Sustainable Living” features aerial views of suburban areas across the United States and Canada from which Drummond has digitally erased roads leading to and from the community, creating a modern version of the medieval village.

His most recent work, “Grave Architecture,” documents abandoned subdivisions in Delaware and captures the aftermath of the recent collapse of the real estate bubble.

The show features work completed between 2006 and 2009, and runs through Feb. 28, 2010.
