Anne Austin Pearce has constructed a collaborative and interactive setting where visitors are encouraged to create their own images from reproduced fragments of her compositions. She is well known for her ink and acrylic paintings that feature layered, biomorphic forms and dazzling, saturated color. Her overlapping abstract shapes, resembling psychedelic amoebas, complement her goal to work at the intersection of art, literature and science. The exhibition introduces a monumental, free-form mural inspired by the myth of Icarus. Other components are influenced by authors Margaret Atwood and Virginia Woolf, while a central structure references a natural history museum.

Three States

October 21, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - January 6, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Joseph Nease Gallery, 23 West 1st Street
Duluth, MN 55802 United States
+ Google Map

Joseph Nease Gallery opens its inaugural exhibition Three States on October 21, 2017, with Matthew Kluber, Kathy McTavish, and James Woodfill. The exhibition runs through January 6, 2018. So what is Three States? Art critic, Dave Hickey once suggested “that all an artist needs is to decide where to live, how to live and what they want their art to look like.”  Similarly, as a gallery, all you need to know is where you want it to be, how you want it run, and what you want the work you show to look like.  Thus, we are in Duluth, Minnesota, with a thoughtfully run gallery showing artwork that we want (you) to see. In our inaugural exhibition titled Three States, we feature artists from three states with work that is related by motion, technology and finally formed by the space it occupies.  Each of these artists, Matthew Kluber (Iowa), Kathy McTavish (Minnesota), and James Woodfill (Missouri) share these commonalities, but through painting, projection, motion, and vantage point options give distinctly different viewer experiences.  Matthew Kluber is an artist whose “painting (projection)” work investigates the intersection of painting and digital technology.  Kathy McTavish is a media composer, cellist and installation artist…

Kansas City , MO United States
+ Google Map

About Artist: From the time she could pick up a crayon, Rita (attended '52-'53 painting) has not stopped making art. Her creative journey spanning more than 80 years, has encompassed many mediums and processes: from the discovery that her drawings can become sculpture up to 60 feet tall to the realization that her black lines flow more powerfully from two hands at once ___and that color can be added in the same manner. She loves music and dance which she uses as inspiration, her work seems to just dance no matter the medium she is working in. About this show: This show will have large canvases, works on paper with color and also black lines only and sketches that flow so beautifully. It has taken months for MLB collaborating, details and selections with the invaluable help of Rita Blitt and Colleen Nilson. The show is curated by Marie Bertholet Smith At the same time as the Opening at MLB Gallery, there is to be a Grand opening of the Rita Blitt Gallery and Sculpture Garden at the Mulvane Museum on the campus of Washburn University. Opening Reception will be on November 3. For more details go the Mulvane’s website. Artist…
