Conceivably Plausible:
Prints from the Collections of Jen Scheuer and Beauvais Lyons
Ink Shop Studio Gallery  July 1 - August 27, 2016

2nd Reception August 5th, 5-8pm

Conceivably Plausible presents prints from the collections of Beauvais Lyons and Jennifer Scheuer that test the limits of belief. The works in the exhibition depict a range of subjects, from unusual medical cures, to strange creatures and artifacts from distant cultures. Many of the images are speculations about the limits of knowledge and belief, while others appear to be historical propositions now considered to be invalid. Scheuer’s collection includes lithographs and photogravures showing the relationship between plants, medicine and the living body and a selection of research about a famous pharmacopoeia. Beauvais Lyons, who is the Director of the Hokes Archives is presenting lithographs that document ancient Aazudian culture, anatomical anomalies and various zoological curiosities.
