CROSS POLLINATE: WORKS ON PAPER

CROSS POLLINATE: WORKS ON PAPER

July 11 through August 2, 2019

Carbondale Arts presents “Cross Pollinate: Works on Paper”, a group exhibition curated by Marcia Weese with an opening reception on Thursday, July 11, from 6-8pm at the R2 Gallery located inside The Launchpad at 76 S. 4th Street in Carbondale. “Cross Pollinate” brings a variety of professionals together, including architects, sculptors, ceramic artists, printmakers, (and even a theoretical physicist!), with the common thread being works on paper.

Works on paper are often immediate, intimate, personal expressions with more emphasis on process than product. Because of the often spontaneous nature of drawings and works on paper, this is an opportunity to view more intimately the inner nature of each presenter. Is there a common thread among us, or does each of us approach our world from a separate vector? What is the warp and what is the weft of this group woven together? Where are the intersections and where are the departures? How can such a cross pollination strengthen the dialogue between us and broaden our perspectives?

Curator Marcia Weese (printmaker) brings together 8 other professionals including Gordon Baym (theoretical physicist), Olivia Emery (architect), Jody Guralnick (painter), Sam Harvey (ceramicist), Charmaine Locke (sculptor/painter), Julia Marshall (landscape architect), James Surls (sculptor), and Brad Ziegel (architect).

“Cross Pollinate” is generously supported by DHM Design, an employee-owned planning and landscape architecture firm that provides a range of services, including landscape architecture, land planning, ecological planning and urban design to clients nationwide since 1975.

A preview for Carbondale Arts members and gallery patrons will take place on Thursday, July 11, at 5:30 pm to meet the artists and for an opportunity to see the work before the exhibition opens to the public at 6pm. For more information call (970) 963-1680.
