Art exhibit ‘Clear and Present’ runs through March 2
“Clear and Present” is the newest exhibit in the H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art. The exhibit, which features artwork by Kristin Bauer and Paul Owen Weiner, dissects the visual vocabulary of language through a continuum of printed words from the concrete to the unknowable.
Based in Tempe, Arizona, Bauer builds sculptural assemblages that layer text within strata of polymer pigment and plexiglass. They create visual abstractions and transfer new meaning into fixed language. Weiner, of Denver, frames prints of legislative documents and executive orders under distressed and decimated glass surfaces. The redacted transparency incites limitations of expression during times of duress.
“Clear and Present” runs through Friday, March 2. The gallery is open from noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday (with Thursday evening hours from 6 to 8 p.m.) and from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday in the H. F. Johnson Gallery of the Art.
Admission to the exhibition is free, and the public is welcome.
“Clear and Present” also has an artist lecture scheduled for 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 28 in the H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art.
