RICHLAND — "Rearranging Furniture," an art exhibit featuring photography and video, opens Nov. 6 at WSU Tri-Cities. The exhibit highlights the work of two artists: Alex Emmons of Ellensburg and Chris Ireland of Pullman. The Nov. 6 opening reception is at 5 p.m., followed by an artist presentation at 6 p.m.

The exhibit runs through Dec. 4 in The Art Center at WSU Tri-Cities, in the Consolidated Information Center, 2770 University Drive, Richland. Admission is free and open to the public. The Art Center's regular hours are 12 to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

Alex Emmons is an upstate New York native who teaches photography at Central Washington University. She received her Bachelor of Arts at Denison University, with a major in Studio Art and a minor in Sociology/Anthropology. She earned her Master of Fine Arts in Photography at Arizona State University.

Emmons has traveled and lived abroad extensively, allowing her to investigate "the intersection of domestic space and the agencies of displacement."

"Like a post-colonial anthropologist, my work stems from a series of intimate connections with the lives I brush up against," Emmons says. "These activities reveal themselves to my audience in a variety of modes, which allow us into these sacred spaces by proxy."

Emmons is represented by Alan Klotz Gallery in New York City. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. More details are at http://www.alexemmons.com.

Ireland works at WSU Pullman, where he teaches digital media courses and serves as the Fine Arts Department's information systems coordinator. He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from the Cleveland Institute of Art and a Master of Fine Arts in Digital Media at WSU Pullman.

His work often references personal experiences of home and other places of nostalgic value. Ireland's projects take the form of videos, films, images, sculptures, and installations. His work has been screened and viewed nationally and internationally. More details are at http://www.chris-ireland.com.
