Confluences: Circumnavigating The Territory
September 28 - October 26, 2015
University of the Pacific's Reynolds Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of large-scale color photographs and video works by Dennis DeHart. Confluences is an interdisciplinary, lens based project focused on the Columbia River drainage basin.
Spanning eight US states and two countries, the series examines the interconnections of borders through the framework of bio-regionalism. The impetus for the project stems from a desire to learn and develop a sense of place through both research and direct, experiential engagement. The project is a continuation of DeHart's ongoing interests in the connections, conflicts, and intersections of the natural and cultural worlds.
Dennis DeHart received his M.F.A. in photography from the University of New Mexico in 2002. He previously served as an Assistant Professor of Photography with the State University of New York College at Buffalo and is currently an Assistant Professor of Photography with Washington State University in Pullman, Washington. DeHart's work has been exhibited in over 20 solo exhibitions, in addition to some 75 plus group shows including regionally, nationally and internationally. He has received grants from the New York Foundation for the Arts, the Arizona Commission on the Arts, and a Fellowship from the Idaho Commission on the Arts. His photographs are in private and public collections including the City of Phoenix and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Most recently, Dennis exhibited his photographs in solo exhibitions in Los Angeles and China, lectured on his works in France, and participated in an artist's residency in Finland.
