Time: 4:30pm - 7:30pm CST January 11, 2018
Location: H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art
The H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art at Carthage presents “Clear and Present”, an exhibition of Tempe (Arizona) artist Kristin Bauer and Denver’s Paul Owen Weiner, dissects the visual vocabulary of language through a continuum of printed words from the concrete to the unknowable. Ms. Bauer’s sculptural assemblages layer text within strata of polymer pigment and plexiglass, creating visual abstractions, transferring new meaning into fixed language. In Mr. Weiner’s new work, prints of legislative documents and executive orders are framed under distressed and decimated glass surfaces, a redacted transparency inciting limitations of expression during times of duress.
Show dates: Jan. 8-March 2
