Target Gallery presents Ephemera, an all-media exhibition that challenges the concept of timeless art by exploring ephemeral artwork. Ephemeral is defined as “fleeting, short-lived, momentary, or brief”. For this exhibition the gallery will be displaying artwork created with ephemeral materials that purposefully decay over time or work that contemplates ephemera through themes of time, memory, and impermanence. The juror for this exhibition was Pam Rogers.
