Gregory’s recent body of work, "Everything Lasts Forever," is a series of cast bronze sculptures; the content is pertaining to altering the destiny of ephemeral or discarded objects while questioning permanence using an archival sculpture method. The work has subtle and not so subtle political references, in addition to commentary on the human experience.

Cone's "Processed" explores the complications of occupying a female “body” in the prison system with a focus on the visceral, often dehumanizing ramifications. As an incarcerated woman, I became an object – a collection of meat, fleshy folds and hiding holes – routinely checked and inspected. The works in this show embody this experience; bloated, swollen sacks and misshapen lumps evoke anatomy turned inside out. The orifice is site of trauma, but also functions as a point of transformation.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until February 15, 2020.
