A three-artist exhibit titled “Where the Light Goes” is on display in the Center for the Visual Arts Gallery on the Toledo Museum of Art Campus. 

In its 2nd iteration, “Where the Light Goes” deepens its exploration of contemporary approaches to the photographic image through the examination of its physical properties, the possibilities of its reproduction, its vulnerability, and its uncertainty as an instrument of truth.

“Backyard” by Trisha Holt

On Friday, Feb. 2, Dr. Robin Reisenfeld, curator of works on paper for the Toledo Museum of Art, will moderate a panel discussion featuring the exhibit’s artists: Trisha Holt, Ben Schonberger and Eric Zeigler. Brian Carpenter, UT lecturer of art and gallery director, also will participate in the discussion, which will be held at 6 p.m. in the Toledo Museum of Art Little Theater.

“Framework: Remainder 1” by Ben Schonberger

Holt works with printed photographs to dismantle the image plane. Her bodies of work center around the themes of feminist performance art, the history of cinema, and the aesthetics of serial killers. Her work is at the intersection of performance art and large-scale collage that exist as framed photographs, videos and installations.

Schonberger is a visual artist and lecturer of photography at Point Park University in Pittsburgh. Utilizing photography, appropriated imagery, collage, performance and sculpture, his work examines the complexities of identity through long-term social investigations and archive augmentation processes.

Zeigler is a photographer based in Maumee, Ohio. As an associate lecturer in the UT Art Department, Zeigler teaches photography, digital media and tools.

“False Martian Regolith” by Eric Zeigler
