producing misleading impressions of reality. The Center’s current exhibition is a visual representation of
the ways that our minds and senses play tricks on us. Whether it is oranges that appear as glowing
lanterns or a sheet blowing in the wind that integrates itself into the natural world around it, Illusion is a
reminder that not everything is as we perceive it to be.
Illusion is a juried exhibition that was selected by Terry Etherton of Etherton Gallery. Founded in 1981,
Etherton Gallery specializes in 19th, 20th Century and Contemporary Fine Art Photography. As one of the
Southwest's premier galleries, its inventory incorporates museum quality works including turn-of-thecentury
western American ethnographic and landscape photographs. Mixing traditional black and white
contemporary imagery with vintage classical and digital technologies, the history of photography is always
evident in the gallery's holdings.
Illusion will be on display in the Center's online and physical galleries from August 3 – September 1,
2012. The artists' and public reception will take place August 3, 2012 from 6 - 9p.m.
This exhibition is made possible thanks to the generous support of the City of Fort Collins Fort Fund Grant.
