Joan Levy Hepburn ~ Streams

Thursday, September 25, Lecture: 6 p.m. (Art 100) Reception for the Artist: 4:30-5:30 p.m. (Hiestand) In Streams, Joan Levy Hepburn exhibits paintings and an original sound recording that is inspired by the actual landscape of a stream on her property in Connecticut. These works are layered, not only through the use of different media, but also remark on a stream of consciousness, the history of nature and mankind, memory and dream. The space of this combination of elements exists in perception and imagination and is made real on the canvas. The cello composition, combined with actual recordings, enhances the experience for the viewer, creating layers that enrich the senses. [www. joanlevyartist.com] October 16 – November 12

Thursday, October 16, Lecture: 6 p.m. (Art 100) Reception for the Artist: 4:30-5:30 p.m. (Hiestand) Baum’s habit of foraging through art history for mysterious image fragments is at the root of her upcoming exhibition, Souvenirs From Wonderland. Her paintings, intimate Sintra panels and large-scale un-stretched canvas “rabbit holes,” originate with this search and recovery effort. Through her various studio processes, the images evolve and transform, like word play in the children’s game of telephone. Her paintings are object and metaphor, and act as a threshold between the known and what lies beyond. [www.lesliebaum.net] December 15 – February 10, 2015

Xuan Chen ~ Color

Thursday, January 29, 2015, Lecture, 6 p.m. (Art 100) Friday, January 30, Reception: 5:15-6:15 p.m. (Hiestand) Xuan Chen, the 2014 winner of the William and Dorothy Yeck Young Painters Competition shares her latest studio works in the exhibition, Color. In the exhibition, Chen juxtaposes the historical light installation of the 1970s, the current trend in color study, and the contemporary advances in digital imaging. The historical light installations were created using light instead of paint at a time when digital imaging was a budding technology. Due to current technological advancements, digital imaging is now common and allows the artist to imitate, produce, and/or reproduce the “real” with astonishing accuracy and detail. Chen revisits the histories of abstract painting with a contemporary twist, where she will re-materialize painting, using paint as well as the reflection of paint to create an aura of light in this recent body of work.
