BOONE—The Looking Glass Gallery (LGG) in Appalachian State University’s Plemmons Student Union will feature “CONTACT,” an exhibition featuring work by Alec Castillo and Chastan Swain. The exhibit will be on view Sept. 18-Oct. 13. A reception for the artists will be held Friday Sept. 18, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the gallery. Refreshments will be served.
Castillo and Swain are seniors working toward degrees in studio art with a concentration in photography. Their show focuses on the importance of relationships.
“We crave the relationships and moments of intimacy shared that build us. We long for the contact of others. By creating and exploring relationships we tether ourselves to a stronger identity, who we are is dependent not only on ourselves, but also on the forces around us,” Alec Castillo and Chastan Swain write in an artists’ statement.
