    Paintings Nik Ridley
    on display July 2022, located on the fourth floor of HSEB

  • Apparitions: Postcards from Eye See You
    Photographs on Canvas by J. Fredric May
    On display from 2020-2022, located on the sixth floor of the HSEB
    • A highly-regarded photojournalist and filmmaker, J. Fredric May suffered a stroke during open heart surgery in 2012 that left him legally blind and subject to extraordinary visual hallucinations.  May’s digitally manipulated photo-based works on view here explore his liminal regions of vision where light and dark merge in hallucinatory revelations. For May, these works are both explorations of vision and therapeutic interventions that contribute to his own recovery and inspire others. This exhibit is co-sponsored by the Arizona Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired.

  • Humans of Tempe
    On loan from the Tempe History Museum
    On display from May 21, 2021 – June 13, 2022
    • Loosely based on the Humans of New York idea, four photographers, working with the Tempe History Museum, gathered short interviews and informal portraits of random folks on the streets of Tempe. Each photo and caption provide a small glimpse into the psyche, problems, adventures, worries and dreams of some of the people inhabiting our cities. These portraits and stories remind us that we are all human — our problems may not be that bad, that we are not alone, and that others may share the same joy and pain as we do.
  • The Psychological Logic of Collage
    Hand-cut collage on paper and acrylic paintings by Raphaele Cohen-Bacry
    On display from October 20, 2021 – March 31, 2022
    • This exhibit is a collection of hand-cut collages on paper alongside "make-believe collage" large paintings on canvas by pharmacist and artist Raphael Cohen-Bacry. Her artwork strives to put the viewer in an unknown and surprising context — to be intriguing and go against the illusion of comfort and safe familiarity in order to stimulate the mind.
