Amon Carter Museum of American Art, 3501 Camp Bowie Boulevard
Fort Worth, TX United States

Since the 1990s, experimental photographer Alumna Ellen Carey has been making photographs that defy photographic conventions of depicting identifiable subjects. Instead, her works depict vibrant fields of color that are meditations on the very nature of photography as an image created by the action of light on a light-sensitive surface. The exhibition Ellen Carey: Dings, Pulls, and Shadows features seven key works that explore the artist’s interest in color, light, and the photographic process as the subject of her practice.

Sandoval and Carroll speak at Visiting Artists Presentation at the Nerman Museum

February 15 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, 12345 College Blvd
Overland Park, KS 66210 United States

Find out what motivates Alumna and Sculptor Angelica Sandoval and Photographer Patty Carroll at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art's Third Thursday Visiting Artists Presentation on February 15 at 3:30 p.m. Alumna Angelica Sandoval's illuminated sculptural installations feature the nontraditional use of porcelain, highlighting its translucent and textural qualities.  Sandoval says, "my passion lies with the experimentation of discovering a variety of materials' limits, pushing them beyond their boundaries, removing the material from its original context and assigning a new identity. Angelica is an Associate Professor of Fine Arts at Johnson County Community College. Patty Carroll is known for her intense, saturated color photographs.  Her recent project, Anonymous Women, consists of a four-part series addressing women and their complicated relationships with domesticity.  The latest narratives, Demise, Carroll states, "comment on the mania of collecting, accumulating and decorating a home. In the series, the objects take over, and the woman is crushed by her own possessions, leading to disaster and mayhem."
