Studio Art faculty holds exhibition of work
GRANVILLE, Ohio — Denison University’s Studio Art faculty present an exhibition of their work titled “Union Block” with an opening reception from 5 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 29, at Denison Art Space in Newark (23 West Church). This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Jonathan Vega at 740-587-6325 or visit Denison.edu.
Thee exhibit will include the works of art faculty Ron Abram, Micaela Vivero, Sheilah (Wilson) Restack, Chris Faur, Keith Allyn Spencer, Blake Turner, Em Rooney, Britny Wainwright and Chris Domenick.
“This exhibit will showcase art by faculty that has been presented internationally and across the United States,” remarked Jonathon Vega, coordinator of the Denison Art Space in Newark. “Viewers can expect to see a wide range of mediums represented in the gallery, or maybe even beyond the space.”
Abram, who is opening a solo exhibition on queer Latin identity later this year, is coordinating his show with the larger body of work at Taller Puertoriquenno in Philadelphia. The Denison Art Space in Newark exhibition will include prints and puppets being exhibited for the first time in Ohio. It will also include an adaptation of a piece created this summer entitled “La Astrologia” (Besame Mucho). This is an experimental piece that includes sound work by Berlin-based musician Siegfried& Destroy, combining film, prints and puppets.
Other faculty currently or soon to be exhibiting include Restack at the Angela Meleca Gallery in Columbus, Chris Faur at the Kim Foster Gallery in New York, and Em Rooney at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
Abram says, “It's great to see work that has been created in Bryant and how the work contrasts and compliments each faculty member in all the areas that we work in and teach. It's a great opportunity for students, and community, to see faculty work and to see artists' individual disciplines.”
The exhibit runs through Wednesday, February 1, 2018. Denison Art Space in Newark is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday to Friday, and by chance or appointment.
