Gallery Season



jmculver paintingWHERE BACK WHEN

January 11 – March 23, 2016

Large-scale paintings by J. M. Culver reconstruct the past and explore new perspectives in generational storytelling with narratives that vary from mundanity, absurdity, gravity, and the humor of life. These intimate paintings take a look into the transitory nature of memory, inconsistency of perspective with mental illness, and the ownership of stories and secrets.

J. M. Culver is a fiscal year 2015 recipient of an Artist Initiative Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

Reception: January 22, 7 – 9 p.m. –  Gage Family Art Gallery

Anna Boyer Bredeson

May 12 – August 7, 2016

Bredeson explores the relationship between musical notation and heard vocal song through thread installations that act as visual interpretations of a choral piece. Loosely based on traditional bookbinding stitches, these thread drawings are based on the written score as well as the composer’s conceptual ideas.

Reception: June 10, 6 – 8 p.m. – Christensen Center Art Gallery


ONE LINEHoisington
Emily C. K. Hoisington

May 12 – August 7, 2016

In her “One Line” body of works, Emily C. K. Hoisington uses continuous lines to show encounters between a person and their environment. By using parts of the same line to show, for example, both the contour of a finger and the texture it is touching, the subject and object become connected.

Reception: June 10, 6 – 8 p.m. –  Gage Family Art Gallery
