Causes Taken As Effects
Timothy van Laar
Gallery 406, Arts West
Artist Talk:  Monday, October 5, Gallery 406, 5:30 p.m.

These paintings are rooted in collage and its disruptive procedures. Simple, varied paint applications catalog a wide range of processes and at the same time become specific images and art historical references – a bird, a smear of black; a bowl, a puddle of transparent paint; a hard-edge grid of colored squares. Like collage and its radical recontextualization, the paintings examine the nature of representation and the function of signs. They are unsystematic and eccentric, offering visual puns, arbitrary relationships, and playful allusions to art history, personal stories and surprising shifts of materiality.

 

Monday, August 31 - Monday, September 28, 2015

Performance and Artist Talk: Gallery 406, Monday, March 9 - 5:30 - 7:00 p.m.

Appropriated medical terminology study cards, snippets from popular Meg Ryan romantic comedies, and projected video and text about the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe make up the work of this one-person exhibition titled Elegies by Elon University Associate Professor of Art and Environmental Studies, Samantha DiRosa.  Performing as localized requiems in a sense, DiRosa's seemingly dissimilar bodies of work come together to speak poetically to lovesickness, loss, distance, and disconnection.  These themes are explored on both intimate / personal levels and larger cultural / global levels through a diversity of media.

The Accident Event Register
Lisa Bulawsky
Gallery 406, Arts West
Reception:  Gallery 406, Monday, February 9 - 12:00-1:00 p.m.
Artist Talk:  Gallery 406, Monday, February 9 - 5:30-6:30 p.m.

Bulawsky’s current exhibition in Gallery 406 focuses specifically on the relationship between the “happy accident”- a pleasant situation that is neither planned nor intended, and the “integral accident”- one which is driven by new technologies, often catastrophic, but so commonplace and inevitable that it is no longer unexpected. She transforms visual happenstance into commentaries concerning the nature of the accidental, whether defined by imminence or serendipity. Even more, these juxtapositions of personal and cultural histories examine the documentation of time itself.

Matt Wilt
Gallery 406, Arts West
Opening Reception:  Monday, November 3, Gallery 406, 12:30 - 1:30 p.m.
Artist Talk: Monday, November 3, Gallery 406, 5 - 6 p.m.

Wilt is intrigued by art that synthesizes the human, physical body with the mechanics of the manmade world. Influenced by the work of Hausmann, Ernst, and Rebecca Horn, Wilt’s art references the body and its uneasy union with the artificial or mechanical. Symbolic forms include the hand and objects used as surrogates for the body: bottle nipples, respirator bags, sex toys, and prosthetics. The hand exemplifies the human presence, while the other objects distance us from the most human of activities. These forms as manufactured objects replicating natural functions act as substitutes for nature. Wilt finds this composite of the physical body and the synthetic world simultaneously fascinating and frightening. Through this line of inquiry he attempts to connect threads that link the many disparate elements of history, culture and what it is to be human. 

 

Monday, September 29 - October 30, 2014 
Berding and Henriquez: Painting
Opening Reception:  Monday, September 29, Gallery 406, 12:30 - 1:30 p.m.
Artist Talk:  Monday, September 29, Gallery 406, 5 - 6 p.m.

Inspired by the connectivity that John Dewey saw as essential to aesthetic experience, this exhibition highlights the work and studio process of two artists with different methodologies, yet who share a commitment to painting as a practice deeply informed by both the landscape of material culture and the transformation that occurs in the creative process. Thus, along with new paintings produced during the recent year, the exhibition will importantly feature source materials and other archived elements critical to their studio practice.

Gallery 406, Arts West
Artist Reception & Gallery Talk:  Monday, September 8, Gallery 406, 5 - 6 p.m.

While the gaze has long been explored as a mechanism of domination, recent scholarship also considers the act of looking as a disruption of power. The artworks of Ken Hassell and Ann Pegelow Kaplan each explore modern day inequalities and how our attention and perspective as human beings influence our experience. Both artists work in photography and video - Hassell considering environmental and social issues in Appalachia, such as mountain top removal, pollution of drinking water and black lung; Kaplan following her own autobiographical traces to explore instances of contemporary oppression, including racial segregation, nuclear power and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Continuing an ongoing conversation about power, representation, attention and stillness, and the act of looking.

Third Nature
Virginia Derryberry
Isabella Cannon Room, Center for the Arts
Artist Talk:  Monday, April 14, Yeager Recital Hall, 5:30 - 6: 15 p.m.
Artist Reception:  Monday, April 14, Isabella Cannon Room, 6:15 - 7:00 p.m.

Derryberry’s large scale oil on canvas figure paintings blend narrative elements from mythology and alchemy, the forerunner of modern science. Her intent is to suggest multiple interpretations rather than straightforward illustration of a specific narrative. At first glance, it seems that she’s defining a “real” space, but in fact, the images are constructed from multiple viewpoints and lighting systems. Passages of volumetric rendering set next to more abstract, painterly areas result in the creation of a virtual, shifting world where nothing is quite what it seems.

Artist Talk:  Monday, March 17, Gallery 406, Arts West, 5 - 6 p.m.  

Patrick Earl Hammie’s paintings explore the tension between power and vulnerability and attempt to re-image the modern male. Through body language and narrative, Hammie reinvents and remixes ideal beauty and heroic nudity and examines how male artists have historically represented themselves and the nude. These portraits draw from his life history as a son, a male and an African American struggling to synthesize past adversity and visualize the effort to reconcile inner duality and yield to new realities that require constant compromise and change.

Artist Talk:  Monday, February 10, Gallery 406, Arts West, 5 - 6 p.m.

Much recent attention, particularly in Europe, has been given to the question of “drawing research.” Artist John Penny sees his work and interests as being intrinsically bound up in this area. His current research is centered on the idea of “drawing with materials” – an interest that sources sculpture rather than painting to construct this area of work.

TrendFACTORY: ELON
Leslie Mutchler
Gallery 406, Arts West
Opening Reception and Artist talk:  Monday, November 4, Gallery 406, 12:30-1:30 p.m.

A community-driven, multi-participatory installation that explores issues related to hand (craft), the physicality of labor, and the repetition of memes in the virtual world through hand-manufactured objects. It utilizes the gallery as a workspace and its existence is dependent on audience participation. Minimalist workstations are placed around the space for viewers to construct a cultural artifact, a non-functional art object, using guidelines and basic tools. The byproduct of the participants' physical production is uploaded to a common media-sharing platform (tumblr) by using a smartphone. Once these objects are catalogued in the database for posterity and analysis, they are dismantled and left in the “recycling” bin for another viewer to build a new, repeating the cycle throughout the course of the exhibition.

Closing Reception: Thursday, October 28, Isabella Cannon Room, 6:30-7:30 p.m.

Jason Lahr’s paintings combine darkly comic texts with appropriated images, creating shifting narratives of working class male identity as influenced by popular culture.   The images are pulled from a wide range of popular and sub-cultural ephemera while the texts are fragments that suggest their excision from a larger story, and give the reader/viewer flashbulb glimpses at moments of narrative action.

Form, Function and Futility: An Exploration in Architecture and Identity
Morgan Craig
Gallery 406, Arts West
Artist Talk and Reception: Monday, September 30, Gallery 406, 5:30-6:30 p.m.

Morgan Craig believes that architectural structures acting as both repositories and as vehicles for memory profoundly influence culture and identity by providing a tangible framework through which facets of a society can be expressed. Consequently, Craig has been inspired to build a body of work dealing with how identity is influenced by the types of architectural edifices present in a given landscape. So often the post-industrial edifices are dismissed as symbols of failure, danger, and/or obsolescence. While evidence of these pasts or present-day difficulties may not be pleasant, Craig feels it imperative that societies not ignore their existence and their impact on the past, present, and future understanding of societies.

Hopfensperger’s functional furniture pieces illustrate comparisons, contrasts, and reconciliations between the history of handmade objects and the culture of mass production, serving as reminders of the elegant relationships and essential connections among the human hand, the eye, and the mind. Motawi hand-crafts art tile in an Ann Arbor, MI studio. These distinctive tiles are known for their rich glazes and uniquely American designs, inspired by nature, art and architecture.

Jess Dugan
Isabella Cannon Room, Center for the Arts
Opening Reception and Artist Talk:  Monday, April 15, Isabella Cannon Room, 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.

A collection of portraits within the transgender and gender variant community shows the endless number of gender identities or specifics to each person and further illustrates gender identity and biological sex as two distinct constructs. More broadly, the images call into question societal expectations about gender roles that affect everyone including those who are not a part of the transgender community. In an effort to increase understanding, these images portray issues unique to the transgender community while also highlighting the shared experience of being human.

The studio faculty of the Art & Art History department exhibits current work surrounding the idea of the “art kit.” The concept has become pervasive in popular culture and whether it bolsters or breaks down the perceptions of contemporary art is one of many questions that may be addressed in this exhibition.

Artist's talk:  Monday, September 12, Yeager Recital Hall, 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.

Nayar-Gall examines the displacement and loss integral to the trauma of migration.
