PROCESSING THE IDEAL: Nick Peña, Associate Professor of Art at CBU, is exhibiting his paintings at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens through October 5. The exhibition, titled “Processing the Ideal,” features large-scale paint­ings that re-visualize perceptions of the “American Dream” and the effects that pursuit has on our environment. Many of Peña’s paintings begin with personal nostalgia and culminate in serious, social, or polit­ical inquiries. He considers both changing social norms and the physical appearance of the American landscape in his work. “Processing the Ideal” presents an interesting conundrum and questions if the ground that we live upon is both physically and ideologically solid. More information at CBU News Center or at www.dixon.org.
