Using the human body as a unit of measurement, artist Heather Sincavage examines the potency of human emotions. These emotions are driving forces at nearly every moment in life, yet cannot be quantified with any certainty. While emotions are not tangible, their influence is bona fide. Sincavage uses numerous studio methods in this body of work, “a measure of” drawing, sculpture, installation, photography and recorded performance as an attempt to prove people’s ontological existence.

Gallery hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday to Thursday; 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Friday; and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday. The gallery is closed on Sundays.
