Art On The Land

 

Johnson Memorial Building, The Gallery of Contemporary Art

February 12, Friday (through February 22)

Studio Art students return from a trip to the Trinchero Ranch in Colorado to display their new works, using nature as both source and subject matter.  After familiarizing themselves with the history of the region and its native plants, animals, and terrain features, students worked inside and outside in a winter landscape to produce individual and collaborative artwork—sculpture, drawing, photography, and installations—in response to such common phenomena as daylight, moonlight, temperature, snow, ice, and wind.  They also used materials found on the land to respond creatively to the themes of fragility, temporality, erosion, decay, and regeneration. Featuring the work of Amy Doucette ’12, Ki Lee ’12, Melinda Marquis ’11, Derek Matus ’12, Leslie Moffat ’11, Michaela O’Connor ’11, Cameron Poole ’12, Emily Reed ’11, Liza Shea ’11, and Jue Yang ’11, led by Professor Eric Nelson.
