Looking Glass Gallery presents “Imaginary Places”

BOONE—Looking Glass Gallery (LGG) in Appalachian State University’s Plemmons Student Union presents “Imaginary Places,” an exhibition featuring work by William Seal.

“Imaginary Places” will be on view Wednesday, Nov. 18 through Friday, Dec. 11. Gallery hours are weekdays 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday’s 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sundays noon to 11 p.m.

A reception will be held Friday, Dec. 11, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

Seal is a senior studio art major from Washington, D.C. His work explores the idea of proprioception, or the body’s understanding of its place in space. Through his large-scale installations, Seal builds environments that engage the viewer. Interaction with each piece is essential.

This exhibition is extremely light sensitive and must be displayed in total darkness. In order to achieve the darkness that the sculptures require, the gallery was painted black and the windows have been covered to block as much light as possible. The sculptures emit enough light to help visitors find their way around the gallery.
