(Modesto, CA) –Modesto Junior College Art Gallery presents Terra Incognita, an exhibition of the work of Noah Wilson, a photography instructor at MJC. The photography display is open to the public through September 18. The MJC Art Gallery is located on East Campus, 435 College Avenue and it is open Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Admission is free.
A reception with the artist will be held on Thursday, September 4, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Gallery. Refreshments will be served. Terra incognita means “unknown land” and it is a label often used on early maps to describe terrain that was unexplored or unrecorded. “Every photograph is an image of something but it’s also an image of absence,” explains Wilson. “A photograph has edges, where the world does not, and every exposure made by a camera has an end. This is both the limitation and the strength of still photographs – that they can lead us into a landscape and illuminate so much, but that they always leave us with questions and wonder. In my work, I try to locate these limitations and questions about what remains unknown, unseen and ineffable.”
