Hoffman Gallery

In this interdisciplinary and interactive exhibition, Dana Lynn Louis will transform the Hoffman Gallery into an experiential environment that explores the varied meanings of “clearing.”

In this new body of work, viewers will enter an ethereal landscape inside and outside of the Hoffman Gallery, composed of drawings, sculpture, photography, projections, and sound.

Louis will be drawing in the gallery from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, September 13; Tuesday, September 16; Saturday, September 20; and Tuesday, September 23.

A Conversation on “Clearing”

Sunday, November 16th

South Chapel


Please join us for a facilitated dialogue on “clearing,” the subject of the 2014 Hoffman Gallery show by Dana Lynn Louis. This afternoon of conversation will feature a panel discussion with Ms. Louis, followed by small-group discussions in which you are invited to participate. Together, we will explore the varied meanings of clearing – as understood through our professional practices, through our personal experiences, and through our impressions of the artwork on exhibition.
