Merced College Art Gallery, 3600 M St., Merced, will feature an exhibition titled “Borderlands,” featuring paintings and drawings by Southern California artists Andrew Dickson and Jonathan Puls.

The exhibition opens Oct. 6 and will continue to Nov. 10.

“Borderlands” is an exploration of the way in which boundaries of land and landscape are constantly emerging and changing. These boundaries can be personal, political and or natural.

Both Puls and Dickson are committed landscape painters from Southern California. Both painters live in the city where they often find themselves at the edges of natural and constructed spaces. Both artists are deeply aware of how landscape is arbitrarily divided and transformed into commodity and how “undesirable” land is left unattended and derelict.

This exhibition is a series of landscape paintings and drawings produced on-site and in the studio, offering a meditation on borders within landscapes.

Dickson and Puls have exhibited their art work in numerous solo and group exhibitions in California and throughout the United States.

Dickson is an assistant professor for painting at CSU Fullerton.
