Making Now: Open for Exchange (Upper Gallery)— Part of Seven Days of Opening Nights.
Guest Curator Carolyn Henne, Chair of the Department of Art at Florida State University, states that: “In the uncertainty of Now, we look to the future. What is the future of making? And how are we shaping its course? Making Now: Open for Exchange examines this future, but it starts with the pronoun we. How are WE shaping the future? Through new and old technologies, the shift really becomes a movement from central authorship to collective investment. WE make experiences together, and these experiences build towards a creative vision. . . .That vision is not singular, it doesn’t claim a single voice, instead the vision is multiple like a 3D printer that takes tiny particles and builds them together from a thousand perspectives.” [Catalogue] Opening Reception Friday, February 14th 6-8pm. Closed Spring Break, March 8-16 except for arranged tours (644-1299).
Trevor Bell / Both Sides of the Atlantic (Lower & Walmsley Galleries)— Internationally recognized British artist, Trevor Bell, has had studios in America as well as the UK. An abstract painter, Bell came to prominence in the 1960s with his innovative, large scale shaped canvases and was invited in 1976 to become Professor for Master Painting at Florida State University. In 1996, Bell returned to England and currently lives and works in Cornwall continuing to explore color and form in shaped canvases that allude to places where he has lived or traveled. The light, space, sea and sky of both Florida and the Cornish coast are augmented by the memory of fierce mountainous wildernesses in India and Tibet and numerous other influences that had an impact on the works he produced in studios on both sides of the Atlantic. Part of Seven Days of Opening Nights. Lydon Gallery and MoFA paintings from Florida and United Kingdom Studies.
