The “through lines” on display represent concepts, mediums, and techniques with which each artist has been involved and revisited over time. They are not necessarily straight or continuous. Nor do they tell the entire story of each artist’s development. Some work is connected by subject matter as in Dan Kasser’s symbolic and Jennifer Little’s documentary landscapes. Subject matter also connects Barbara Flaherty’s cave paintings, Deanna Hunt’s fascination with trees, and Lisa Cooperman’s focus on the human body. Material explorations are featured in Brett DeBoer’s reinterpreted game pieces and musical instruments and Jill Vasileff’s saturated, tactile installations. Marie Lee and Michael Leonard present work on the spectrum of illustration. Monika Meler and Lucinda Kasser share the evolution of their luminous work in printmaking and painting.

Through Lines features photography, painting, prints, posters and sculpture by Barbara Flaherty, Brett DeBoer, Daniel Kasser, Deanna Hunt, Jennifer Little, Jill Vasileff, Lisa Cooperman, Lucinda Kasser, Marie Lee, Michael Leonard, and Monika Meler.

The Reynolds Gallery is located in the Jeannette Powell Art Center on the Stockton Campus of University of the Pacific at 1071 W. Mendocino Ave.
