Curated by Michael Asbill.  Featuring projects in a wide range of mediums by more than 20 members of the art faculty at SUNY New Paltz, the work in this exhibition is connected by a tension that exists between recognizable objects, places, and spaces encountered every day and the degree to which the ordinary is complicated, fascinating, and most likely unknowable. Free. Alice and Horace Chandler Gallery and North Gallery, Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, SUNY New Paltz, 1 Hawk Drive, New Paltz, 845.257.3844; www.newpaltz.edu/dorskymuseum​
