The McIninch Art Gallery presents Things. There will be an opening reception and artist talk on Thursday, January 25 from 5-7 p.m. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
We can make many associations with the word THINGS. There are things to collect, things to get rid of, things we need, things we desire, things that are necessary, things that comfort and the list is endless. The work of these five artists is an homage to certain things and reveals some curious relationships people have with their things. In this exhibition, each artist has isolated some characteristic of a thing or inferred a particular meaning to a specific thing. Belton blends humor with the sobering reminder of waste. Bosman’s simplistic rendering of a cell phone is loaded with associations as he illustrates the object in use. Palocci isolates portions of everyday objects such as door knobs, window blinds, or air vents and illuminates the beauty of their simplistic designs. Paul’s artist book is a book of days with things, deftly drawn images, one for every day in a year of her life. Bergtrom’s beautiful images of the basic brown paper bag require close observation in order to appreciate the story of their maker.
This exhibition offers an opportunity for viewers to consider what is uniquely embedded in their objects, their “things” that enable us to connect with meaningful experiences and/or memories in our lives.
