Jeff Wilson's photographs explore the unknown. Cryptozoology, the exhibition title, is the study of evidence that suggests the existence of creatures that have never before been recorded. From the Loch Ness Monster to Bigfoot to the Abominable Snowman, stories of unusual and mysterious creatures exemplify a desire to explain the unexplainable. Wilson's images subtly insinuate the existence of the mythological, mysterious, and unexplained in everyday life; and chart our attempts to reconcile them.

Opening reception: Friday, Nov.14, 6-8 p.m.
Gallery talk: Friday, Nov.14, 5-6 p.m.
