Opening reception highlights "With Perplexity" exhibit

The Opening Reception for Crystal Liu’s "With Perplexity" was March 17 in the San Marco Gallery in Alemany Library at Dominican University of California in San Rafael.

An Artist’s in-gallery talk preceded the reception.

The exhibit is on display in the San Marco Gallery on the first floor of the library through April 18.

Ms. Liu was the Gold Medal Award winner at Ontario College of Art and Design when she graduated with her BFA in 2003. She completed her MFA at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2005. Her photos hail from cities such as Toronto, San Francisco, Chicago and Glasgow. Landscapes float up into view with a delicate touch more akin to painting than photography. Their vastness and freedom allow viewers to surrender, re-imagine, or re-create them as personal reverie or memory.

In the summer of 2005 Ms. Liu joined the Hosfelt Gallery in San Francisco.
