In 1993, Eric Gillet set out for Mongolia with Philippe Simon, a Belgian writer and independent filmmaker, and in 1994 they made their way toward Central Africa. They never reached their final destinations, but achieved their goal nonetheless: to experience the process of traveling which makes reaching a destination less important. The relationship between the travelers and their encounters provide a series of stunning black-and-white photographs in which the photographed “other” looks directly back at the world of the photographer.

Work influenced by a long association with the Indians of Vancouver Island marks the painting of Margaret Peterson (O’Hagan). Peterson, described by former colleagues and students as a “brilliant” critic of student work and a “passionate” teacher, was an Associate Professor of Art who resigned her position at UC Berkeley in protest against the loyalty oath. Although Peterson went on to a long career in painting, with many exhibits and prizes to her credit, she never returned to the university.
