Steckline Gallery to host ‘Natural Anomalies’ for First Friday

Oct 27, 2021

Steckline Gallery will soon see another collaborative display for First Friday, preceded by an artist talk. The artist talk will take place at noon Thursday, Nov. 4, and First Friday will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Nov 5.

The upcoming display, “Natural Anomalies,” will feature a variety of components inspired by the Midwestern experience. As opposed to an individual artist doing the creative work, this display is the result of a team effort. 

Black Rainbow is a local group of artists composed of Carlos Palomino-Davila, Emily Baird and Hugo Zelada-Romero.

“Natural Anomalies” utilizes a variety of artistic tools and techniques. The display includes elements of surrealism interspersed with supernaturalism, enhanced by observational perspectives.

“Natural Anomalies” comes in the form of a mixed-media experience, implementing photography, videography and even soundscaping. These elements will collectively immerse attendees in the mood and atmosphere of the art.

Steckline Gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday in DeMattias Hall. “Natural Anomalies” will remain on display in the gallery through Thanksgiving weekend.
