Art at the Cave: The gallery’s October’s exhibit, “Interconnected, Interwoven, Interactive,” offers a peek into the complexities of our lives and mimics the neutral tones of fall — dissecting visual information into a dark, dense color palette.

Chipman’s interactive video installation, photographs and video address sexism and gender inequality, while Falk’s paintings reveal patterns and tendencies of perception that exist both within and beyond the present moment.
