Opening Reception: 5 - 8pm
First Thursday, January 2, 2014

In Romanced, Schmidt Dotzauer experiments with the idea of the classic front porch in American popular culture, presenting viewers with the experience of various aspects of porch life. Delicate paper afghan blankets hang from the walls like those of her grandmother’s house telling the back-story of Romanced. Fragments of this classic American meeting space are placed throughout the gallery allowing viewers to sit, ponder and chat.
