noun \?si-z?-j?\: the straight-line alignment of three celestial bodies in a gravitational system.
A solar eclipse is a brief moment of daytime darkness, when all of nature pauses, quiet and still. In the chill of the moon’s shadow, the temperature drops. Birds stop singing, daytime flower blossoms begin to close, bees become disoriented and stop flying. With sunlight obscured, bright stars and planets become visible—creating a unique visual ambience.
Although only visible over a small area off the coast of Antarctica, a partial solar eclipse will take place on the opening date of Syzygy, Friday, July 1. We’re embracing the pause of nature and suspension of circadian rhythms caused by the solar eclipse, and using this hush to appreciate a collection of work contributed by an inspired group of artists.
Syzygy is a collection of work that features the trifecta of photography, illustration, and sculpture. Join us for the opening reception on July 1 from 6PM-9PM—First Friday in Hood River*
