Deliberate Misunderstanding: Embroidered Found Photographs Exhibition

Friday, October 26 to Friday, January 11
9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Alfred Berkowitz Gallery
Mardigian Library (ML)

Deliberate Misunderstanding: Embroidered Found Photographs exhibition features the work of Jane Waggoner Deschner, a Montana based artist, who describes her work as:

“All this [family background] eventually led to my fascination with early and mid-twentieth century vernacular photographs. Nan Goldin wrote, “The snapshot (is) the form of photography that is most defined by love. People take them out of love, and they take them to remember — people, places, and times. They’re about creating a history by recording a history.” When I make art with another’s photo, I tease out a common humanity not confined by time, place or circumstance. I explore our shared human condition to better understand my own.”

The Berkowitz gallery is pleased to share these remarkable mixed media works with the UM Dearborn campus and greater community!


Open and free to the public.


Deliberate Misunderstandings: Embroidered Found Photographs will be on view from October 26th, 2018 to January 11, 2019. Gallery hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday, 9:00 am-5:00 pm and Thursday, 9:00 am -7:00 pm.
